Charlotte Prenuptial Agreement Lawyers
Protecting Your Rights & Assets for the Future
Prenuptial agreements, also known as premarital agreements, have become common as an establishment of what will happen to the property and assets of a couple should their marriage end in divorce or death. As such, they provide protection for the parties involved, which is especially relevant in second marriages and for parties who bring children from a previous union into the mix. These agreements need to be drafted and finalized according to North Carolina law in order to be valid and enforceable.

North Carolina Prenuptial Agreements
Prenuptial agreements require full disclosure on the part of both parties regarding their finances and assets. Without this, the agreement may be found to be invalid in court.
These agreements protect the sole and separate property that you own prior to the marriage. This means that you have the legal right to do with it as you see fit, such as rent, sell, transfer, or otherwise dispose of it without incurring any consequences in regards to your spouse or your spouse’s children. These agreements can also protect you from the debts your spouse may bring into the marriage or incur during it.
Prenuptial agreements cannot dictate the following:
- Child custody or visitation matters;
- Child support;
- Alimony in the event of a divorce;
- Daily household matters; or
- Anything that is prohibited by law.
Those who commonly consider establishing a prenuptial agreement include:
- Parties with children from a previous marriage;
- Parties with an established estate plan that they wish to have upheld;
- Parties with substantial assets or investments;
- Parties with a successful business; or
- Parties concerned about their fiancé(e)’s debts
Are Prenups Enforceable in North Carolina?
