PREMARITAL AGREEMENTS / SEPARATION AGREEMENTS
Prenuptial Agreement & Separation Agreement Lawyers in Wilmington NC
Premarital agreements, signed before two people marry, and post-nuptial agreements, signed after marriage, are contracts that describe what happens to each party’s assets in the event of divorce, legal separation or death. Contents can vary, but agreements usually include instructions for property division and spousal support. If you are considering drafting an agreement of this type, a skilled attorney can help to ensure your wishes are properly documented.
In North Carolina, a couple seeking divorce must live apart for one year. During this time, divorcing couples have the option of entering into a legally binding separation agreement, which can address issues such as property division, debts, child custody, visitation and child support.
