Holly Springs, NC Prenuptial Agreement Lawyers

If wedding bells will be ringing soon, you’re likely swamped by a long list of last-minute to-dos. In the whirlwind of writing vows, counting RSVPs, and finalizing seating charts, you may be wondering whether or not a prenup is something you need to add to your last-minute to-do list; the answer is yes! We believe every couple getting married should at least put some thoughtful consideration towards whether a prenup makes sense for their relationship.

While everyone marries with the intention of spending forever with their partner, life is unpredictable. A prenup is simply a tool to have in your back pocket, just in case. What many couples fail to realize is even if you don’t create a prenuptial agreement yourselves, when you sign your marriage certificate, you’re agreeing to the laws of your state should your marriage end in divorce. It’s possible that you won’t like those laws and the effect that they can have on your situation, but it is what you agree to.

A premarital agreement keeps you, not the state, in control of your life should the unexpected occur. Don’t be swayed by the common misconception that a prenup anticipates marriage failure. It actually provides a way to be open, honest, and realistic about the life you wish to have with your partner.

If your wedding day is approaching swiftly, our Holly Springs prenuptial agreement lawyers can help draft a thorough prenup that can provide a stable foundation for your marriage. We’ll take care of everything so you can focus on your wedding and your future! Call Triangle Smart Divorce today to request a consultation and learn about your next steps.

What Is A Prenup? Who Is It For? Do I Really Need One?

A prenuptial agreement, also known as a premarital agreement and commonly called a “prenup,” is a legal contract that is negotiated prior to the beginning of a marriage. In this agreement, you and your soon-to-be spouse determine how you want your assets to be managed and your marital property divided if you were to get divorced or if one of you passes away.

Prenuptial agreements are for any couple who wants to protect their individual assets or small business, shield themselves from their spouse’s debts, create clear financial expectations, establish alimony/spousal support, protect their inheritance, and more.

It’s important to note that a prenuptial agreement isn’t intended to raise red flags or create distrust between you and your partner but to assist you in understanding the financial aspects attached to getting married and combining lives. By having hard conversations now, you can spare yourself conflict down the road.

What Can And Cannot Be Included In My Prenup?

What should be included in a prenuptial agreement is primarily dependent upon each couple and their unique situation. There are a few restrictions in the state of North Carolina, though. Generally, what can be included and what cannot are as follows:

What Can Go In:

  • 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.

What Cannot Go In: 

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

Why Work With One Of Our Holly Springs Prenuptial Agreement Lawyers?

A prenuptial agreement is a legal document, and an attorney who understands the local laws (not an online service!) is the best resource to help you create one or give you advice if you are hesitant to pursue it. Having professional guidance on your side can make the difference between a mutually beneficial legal agreement that saves you from stress in the future and an agreement riddled with mistakes that leads to unnecessary complications should your marriage end. If you’re taking time out of your busy schedule to create a prenup, you need to ensure that it holds up in court (if the time ever comes) and protects your best interests.

At Triangle Smart Divorce, our team of skilled Holly Springs prenuptial agreement lawyers will take the time to understand your goals in creating a prenup, explain all of your available options, and help you start your marriage off on the right foot! Call today to request a consultation and begin the process. We will help you gain confidence and peace of mind in the future ahead of you.

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.
