Prenuptial agreements, or premarital agreements, are the most common way to establish how the assets and property of the couple will be divided in the event of divorce or death of one of the partners. Laying out the wishes of both parties through a prenup contract is an effective way to ensure that there is no legal conflict down the road and lays the groundwork for a smooth marriage. It is very important that these contracts follow all NC laws and guidelines. At Parker Law, we are well-versed in drafting, negotiating, and enforcing these contracts so that they remain legally binding, while also carefully taking into consideration the wishes and needs of both parties.
Similarly, Postnuptial agreements are contracts drafted after a couple has been married, but carry out the same purpose of outlining the wishes of both parties for the division of the marital estate. Though sometimes looked down upon, both of these tools are excellent ways to establish open communication between spouses about the ownership of the assets and property that both partners have worked hard for.
There are a wide variety of reasons why drafting a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement may be the best option for you in your marriage. These documents are used to make clear the ownership and rights that each spouse retains throughout the union, to certain assets or pieces of property, so that there is no uncertainty in either partner’s mind. These agreements can be used as an additional tool in the estate planning toolbox, or can simply be used to support transparency and communication throughout this binding relationship.
