Serving Union and Mecklenburg Counties including Weddington and Matthews
Separation agreements are extremely useful for that period when you and your spouse are waiting to file for divorce. In North Carolina, spouses have to be separated for a year and a day. During that separation period a separation agreement can help ease the transition. Separation agreements can include:
- Child custody
- Division of property
Once the separation period is over, the separation agreement can be integrated into the court order.
Cohabitation and Separation Agreements in Union and Mecklenburg County
Unmarried couples and same-sex couples may also benefit from a cohabitation agreement. Because the divorce laws don't apply to them, they can protect their interests and their relationships through a contract.
North Carolina Prenuptial Agreement
Prenuptial agreements are drafted before the parties enter into the marriage. Premarital agreements help couples amicably decide how important financial and property issues will be resolved in case of separation, divorce, or death. For a premarital agreement to be effective it must be in writing and signed by both parties. I strongly suggest that both parties consult separate lawyers before signing the agreement. Postmarital agreements are the same as premarital agreements, except that they are entered into after the marriage.
