Drafting Prenuptial Agreements
Charlotte Divorce Attorney Protecting Your Interests
Many people are under the mistaken impression that prenuptial agreements (also called premarital agreements) are only for those who are wealthy. To the contrary, prenuptial agreements can benefit anyone. At Krusch & Sellers, P.A., our Charlotte prenuptial attorneys draft and review prenuptial agreements for people of all income and asset levels.
Prenuptial agreements can provide:
- Clarity regarding both parties’ intentions regarding current and future assets
- A clear plan for the division of assets
- Assistance with deciding on a course of action if a couple decides to separate or divorce
- A clear division of property, such as inherited assets, rights, or spousal support/alimony
Enforcing Prenuptial Agreements
Two important questions that attorneys and courts will ask when considering how or whether to enforce a prenuptial agreement if it is later challenged are whether the agreement was voluntarily entered into and was there full and fair financial disclosure on the part of the parties regarding their income, assets, and liabilities.
When deciding whether to execute a prenuptial agreement, be sure to plan well in advance so that it is not signed so close to the wedding date that a court may question whether it was signed voluntarily, and make a full and fair financial disclosure to your spouse-to-be.
Understanding Postnuptial Agreements
In addition to prenuptial agreements, our Charlotte family law attorney also drafts and reviews postnuptial agreements. Postnuptial agreements are agreements concerning the rights of couples who are already married who decide they wish to contractually assign their rights and responsibilities in the event of a future separation or divorce.
Postnuptial agreements can also be used for people who have separated and now wish to reconcile, but also desire to predetermine their rights and responsibilities in the event the reconciliation does not work.
