Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Charlotte Family Law Attorneys

When you meet someone, fall in love, and decide that you want to spend the rest of your lives together, the thought of a prenuptial agreement may seem unnecessary or even offensive. With more and more couples getting married later in life (after they have accumulated property and debt) and with many remarriages (where children from a previous marriage must be considered), however, the thought of an agreement to address property, debt, and even custody of children can be very beneficial.

A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can make sure your interests are protected and your wishes are carried out in the event of a divorce or even death. As Charlotte family law attorneys, we at Epperson Law Group, PLLC are dedicated to helping our clients draft, review, and, when necessary, challenge prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements. We offer experienced legal counsel across North Carolina from our offices in Charlotte, Weddington and Boone.

Does a Prenuptial Agreement Make Sense for Me?

Prenuptial agreements are drafted before the parties enter into the marriage. Prenuptial 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, to ensure the full protection of their rights.

Postnuptial agreements are much the same as prenuptial agreements, but they are entered into after spouses are already married.

A Charlotte prenuptial agreement lawyer at our firm can help you address the following in a legally sound agreement that protects your interests and property:

  • Distinguish what is separate property and what is marital property.
  • Outline how marital property will be separated.
  • Protect one spouse from another’s debts.
  • Provide for one’s children from a previous marriage.
  • Keep specific property in the family.
  • Dictate how retirement benefits will be distributed.
  • Dictate how any potential disagreements will be settled, such as through mediation or arbitration as opposed to litigation.
