Pre-And-Post Marital Agreements

Separation agreements are extremely useful for that period when you and your spouse are waiting to file for divorce. In North Carolina, spouses must be separated for at least a year and a day in order to file. During that separation period, a separation agreement can help ease the transition. Separation agreements can include:

  • Child custody
  • Visitation
  • Division of property
  • Alimony

Once the separation period is over, the separation agreement can be integrated into the court order.

Cohabitation And Separation Agreements

Unmarried couples may also benefit from a cohabitation agreement. Because North Carolina divorce laws don't apply to them, they can protect their interests and their relationships through a contract.

Does A Prenuptial Agreement Make Sense For Me?

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. It may be beneficial for the parties involved to each work with a separate attorney. Postmarital agreements are the same as premarital agreements, except that they are entered into after the marriage.
