Why Do You Need a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement in North Carolina?
Prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements outline any range of rights and obligations that can arise from a marriage between two people, with the exception of child support or child custody.
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can address the following issues:
- Separate property
- Marital property
- Property division
- Spousal support
- Life insurance
- Debt repayment
Under the Uniform Prenuptial Agreement Act (UPAA) in North Carolina, any agreement must be made in writing and signed by both spouses. These agreements can be amended in the future should any situation change. In some instances, such as whether both parties voluntarily signed the agreement or when one person did not disclose their financial obligations, a premarital and post-marital agreement may not be enforceable. Working with a seasoned family lawyer can ensure an agreement is in good faith and reflects your best interests during a marriage.
