Charlotte Postnuptial Agreement Attorneys
Providing Financial Protection after Marriage
Postnuptial agreements are written contracts concerning how certain financial
matters will be handled should the couple legally
divorce, or should one of the parties pass away. These contracts are similar to
prenuptial agreements except that they are drafted and finalized after
marriage occurs. They must be written according to North Carolina law
in order to be approved by the court and enforceable later on. They can
be created at any time after a marriage has taken place.

can turn to a Charlotte postnuptial agreement lawyer at Rech Law, P.C.

North Carolina Postnuptial Agreements
Like prenuptial contracts, a postnuptial agreement calls for full disclosure
of financial matters between the two parties. They are binding contracts
that establish how the specific assets and debts of the couple will be
distributed in the event of divorce.
Examples of when a postnuptial agreement may be useful are:
- When a spouse comes into an inheritance or otherwise acquires an asset
that he or she wishes to pass on to his or her children from a prior marriage;
- When the couple failed to establish a prenuptial agreement;
- When wanting to protect one spouse from the substantial debts of the other spouse;
- When a spouse wishes to keep a previous estate plan intact and valid; and
- When the spouses wish to establish spousal support plans should they divorce.
