Marital Property Agreements

An Overview of Pre/Post-marital property Agreement in North Carolina

If you are planning to get married or already married, you may have heard of prenuptial or postnuptial agreements. These are legal contracts that couples can sign before or after their wedding to decide how their assets, debts, and income will be divided in case of divorce, separation, or death.

Benefits of Pre/Post-Marital Agreement

A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can have many benefits for couples, such as:

  • Clarifying their financial expectations and responsibilities
  • Preserving their separate property and inheritance
  • Avoiding costly and contentious disputes in the future
  • Protecting their children from previous relationships
  • Supporting their estate planning goals

Not all agreements are valid and enforceable. There are certain legal requirements and formalities that must be followed, such as:

– The agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties

  • The agreement must be entered into voluntarily and without coercion or fraud
  • The agreement must be fair and reasonable and not unconscionable
  • The agreement must disclose all relevant financial information
  • The agreement must not violate public policy or the law
