Helping Clients Navigate A Course To A Better Future

A prenuptial agreement can end arguments before they begin

It’s natural to be a little concerned about an upcoming marriage. Tension is so normal that “cold feet” and other expressions show its role in society. Patience and self-awareness can help people get through this phase, and communication with a future spouse is essential as well.

But there are also concrete steps people can take if they are concerned about the safety of their assets in a legally recognized relationship. North Carolina will recognize many individuals’ property previous to a marriage as their own individual assets. But things can get complicated for shared assets like homes and the increasing value of assets during a marriage.

A prenuptial agreement may seem like a difficult subject to bring up when you are engaged to be married, but it is your only chance to get that security. A fiancee may agree that a prenuptial agreement is a good idea, and it may reduce arguments in the future that could save a marriage or make it far easier to end.

A prenuptial agreement in North Carolina must include the matters it will address, so future courts know what spouses’ intentions were at the time. It may also govern how a period of separation would work and how child support or custody would be decided for children who are not yet conceived.

A lawyer can explain these details in depth, as well as help with all parts of creating and filing a prenuptial agreement. Whether or not you have one, a lawyer can also help with property division in a divorce and other issues to be resolved.
