Charlotte Prenup Attorney

Protect Your Assets with a North Carolina Prenuptial Agreement

Whether you have children from a previous marriage, own or help run a family business, have significant assets, or have given up your career to get married, you should consider creating a prenuptial (before marriage) or postnuptial (after marriage) agreement to protect your assets in the event of a divorce.

While discussing the possibility of a “prenup” with your fiancé can be difficult, such an agreement can benefit both spouses and may resolve issues in a marriage when they are properly addressed beforehand.

At Jetton & Meredith, PLLC, we have decades of combined legal experience helping our clients facing a wide range of divorce and family law matters. Our Charlotte legal team can review your finances, listen to your concerns, and draft a prenuptial agreement that fulfills your needs and protects your livelihood.

How a Prenuptial Agreement Works in NC

A prenuptial agreement can protect you, your spouse, and your children’s financial interests. Without one, your assets could end up going to your spouse’s kids from a previous marriage or an ex-spouse. In order to create a valid prenup, the agreement must be in writing and notarized prior to the marriage. The prenup needs to be both reasonable and fair, according to both parties’ disclosure of all assets and liabilities.

A prenuptial agreement can do all the following:

  • Determine which assets are community or separate property
  • Determine a method to distribute property in the event of a divorce
  • Provide financial relief to children from a previous marriage/relationship
  • Keep business interests, heirlooms, and other forms of inheritance within the family

A prenuptial agreement cannot waive a spouse’s right to alimony, predetermine child custody or child support issues, provide financial incentives for divorce, or require either spouse to do something illegal.

It is imperative to work with an attorney who can ensure the prenup adheres to state law and can be upheld in court. Each spouse should consult their own lawyer when creating a prenup. Our firm can guide you through the complexities of the legal process and ensure your assets and future are protected.
