About North Carolina Prenuptial Agreements

Are Prenups Enforceable in North Carolina?

To be legally enforceable, prenuptial agreements must be written and signed by both future spouses in North Carolina.

It is mandatory by the state to follow the Uniform Prenuptial Agreement Act for all formal requirements, as well.

Please note that the prenup will not take effect until the couple gets married.

What Makes a Prenup Valid?

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.

What Cannot Be Included in a Prenup in North Carolina?

In North Carolina, prenuptial agreements cannot dictate the following:

Who Should Get a Prenup?

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.

That said, anyone and everyone can benefit from a fair, enforceable prenup.

The Benefits of a Prenuptial Agreement

Prenups 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 regard 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.

Finally, prenups can also prevent a lengthy divorce should the marriage end prematurely. This is because almost all divorce-related matters will have already been worked out.
