Prenuptial Agreements

Charlotte Prenuptial Agreement Attorney

In addition to handling divorce and post-divorce disputes, we assist clients with the preparation and review of prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements.

Many people are under the mistaken impression that prenuptial agreements (also called premarital agreements) are only for the rich and well-to-do. To the contrary, prenuptial agreements can benefit anyone. We draft and review prenuptial agreements for people of all income and asset levels.

A prenuptial agreement that is carefully devised and crafted can provide tremendous clarity for couples who intend to marry. A prenuptial agreement specifies clearly the parties’ intentions regarding their current and future assets, as well as financial responsibilities they plan to undertake during the marriage and upon a separation and/or divorce.

A prenuptial agreement can also clarify the intentions of a future husband and wife concerning issues like inherited assets, inheritance rights and spousal support/alimony.

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 (1) whether the agreement was voluntarily entered into (e.g., was it signed right before the wedding?); and (2) 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.

In addition to prenuptial agreements, our lawyer 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.

  • Alan is a sophisticated professional.

    “Alan is a sophisticated professional. Wow, did I say wow?!!!! He will tell you up front EXACTLY what will happen with your case. Also known as the truth, which (by the way you probably already know.) My advice is to just let him do his job -that he is more than capable of doing. Don't ask too many questions or get yourself worked up. Alan will tell you in advance almost the exact outcome of your case to a t. In the end you can feel good about him as a human being because he won't resort to less than favorable behaviour. And by that I mean other attorneys who have to use immature tactics to make up for what they lack as men. Although it is quite entertaining to watch some of them!!!Hahahahaha!!!!! Submitted by JULIE MEDLIN, who JUST WON HER CASE!!!!!!!!! Thank you ALAN KRUSCH!”
