Do I Need a Prenup in North Carolina?

Premarital agreements must meet all legal requirements – otherwise, the agreement may be unenforceable. For example, if the agreement was not signed voluntarily or if one spouse did not fully disclose their assets, the court may declare the contract void. Prenuptial agreements must be in writing and signed by both spouses before the marriage.

Though many people believe that prenuptial agreements are only for wealthy couples, people from all walks of life can benefit from drafting this kind of contract.

Marital agreements often include provisions for:

Prenuptial agreements can only be revoked or amended through a written agreement by the parties. If you have a prenuptial agreement but circumstances have changed, our attorneys can help you revoke or amend your existing agreement.

Postnuptial Agreements

Postnuptial agreements are marital agreements and family law that are signed after two partners are married. Postnuptial agreements contain the same provisions as prenuptial agreements. If you and your spouse want to make decisions regarding property division, alimony, and other issues to protect your interests in the event of divorce, a postnuptial agreement can accomplish this goal. Our Winston-Salem marital agreement attorneys can make sure your contract is comprehensive and effective.
