Garner, NC Prenuptial Agreement Lawyers

Are you and your spouse saying “I do” soon but have yet to draft a prenuptial agreement? We understand how busy this time of your life can be, but we believe every engaged couple should at least consider creating a prenup before the big day.

While every couple intends to spend forever with their partner after getting married, life can bring up unexpected challenges. Rather than looking at a prenup as a statement that you believe your marriage won’t last, look at it as a safety net and opportunity to be open, honest, and realistic about the future with your partner!

If you don’t create a prenup, you will still have a prenup according to state laws, which you agree to when you sign your marriage certificate. If divorce does occur, you might feel that the effects of these laws are not what you anticipated. A premarital agreement can help you have control over your life should your marriage not pan out the way you hoped it would. If you’re headed down the aisle soon and are considering your legal options, our experienced Garner prenuptial agreement lawyers can help draft a comprehensive prenup. Call Triangle Smart Divorce today to request a consultation and learn about your next steps.

What Is A Prenuptial Agreement?

A prenuptial agreement, also known as a premarital agreement or, more simply, a prenup, is a legal contract established before a marriage begins. In this contract, a couple agrees on how they want their assets to be managed and marital property divided should they divorce or if one spouse passes away.

While you may have heard the common misconception that prenuptial agreements are just for the rich or for those who have been married multiple times, they are for any couple who wishes to:

  • Protect their individual assets or small business,
  • Guard themselves from their spouse’s debts,
  • Establish clear financial expectations,
  • Establish alimony/spousal support,
  • Protect their inheritance,
  • And more!

In North Carolina, a prenup can include:

  • Ownership of assets,
  • Responsibility for debts,
  • Alimony or Spousal support agreements or waivers,
  • Property distribution upon death or divorce,
  • Protections for any businesses owned,
  • Mediation and arbitration clauses to keep you out of court in the event of a separation.

It CANNOT include:

  • Child custody arrangements,
  • Child support details,
  • Daily spousal duties.

How Our Garner Prenuptial Agreement Lawyers Can Help You

We like to point out that while prenups tend to get a bad rap for being unromantic or signaling the failure of a marriage before it begins, they are actually responsible for protecting both parties’ interests and fostering an environment where conversations about financial matters can be approached with transparency.

That being said, we understand how the process of creating a prenup can feel intimidating. That’s where our Garner prenuptial agreement lawyers come in!

Even if you are still apprehensive, we can explain your legal options, answer your questions, and help you determine your next steps if you find that a prenup is right for you. We will ensure that your prenup is personalized and tailored to your top priorities for yourself and your family. We assure you that it is a better alternative than what the state provides for you in the absence of a prenup.

Frequently Asked Questions

IS IT WORTH IT TO GET A DIVORCE LAWYER?

A divorce lawyer may seem like an extra expense if both parties agree on the big decisions, but the details of a divorce can be complex and hard to navigate without an expert, and getting the agreement properly written ensures that everyone has the security and clarity they need to move forward with their lives. It’s better to do it right the first time than have to keep going back and fixing mistakes. And, in some cases, you may not be able to fix your mistakes.

WHAT QUESTIONS SHOULD YOU ASK A DIVORCE LAWYER?

You should ask a potential divorce lawyer about their prior experience with cases like yours, their approach to negotiations when couples reach a disagreement, and their personal success rate in arriving at a resolution through negotiation and/or mediation.

WHAT CAN YOU NOT DO DURING A DIVORCE?

You cannot have one lawyer serve both parties in a divorce. This would be a conflict of interest. It’s incredibly important that each party feels their individual needs are represented and voiced, and that cannot be done with a single lawyer serving as the representative for both parties.
