Prenuptial Agreement Attorney in Greensboro, N.C.
Drafting a prenuptial agreement is rarely viewed as a romantic undertaking, but for many couples, it’s a practical idea worth considering. If you and your loved one are searching for a prenuptial agreement attorney in Greensboro, N.C., contact Ward Black Law today.
Designed to benefit both parties in the event of death or divorce, a prenuptial agreement serves as a private contract between two people intending to marry, or if postnuptial, two people already married.
This agreement discloses the assets and liabilities each individual is bringing to the marriage, and settles any financial and/or property issues that may arise in the event of divorce or death (e.g. who gets the house, who pays spousal support, what property will be considered separate or marital, etc.) And, perhaps most importantly, prenuptial agreements settle any issues normally governed by family and estate laws, because this agreement typically overrides such laws. This makes drafting a prenuptial agreement a simple way to avoid drawn-out legal battles in probate or divorce court.
Although prenuptial agreements are considered commonplace for the super wealthy, almost anyone can benefit from drafting a prenuptial agreement. Instances where it may be useful to draft a prenuptial agreement include:
- When one party makes more than the other;
- When either party is a business owner or owns a substantial interest in a business;
- When one or both parties come to the marriage with any substantial property, funds, investments, or debt;
- When one party has the potential to substantially increase his/her income over time (e.g. a medical student);
- When one party has others that they want to protect and provide for like children from a prior relationship or elderly parents..
As more and more couples are coming to marriage later in life, with more assets and often more debt, it’s wise to establish upfront how all of this will be divided if the marriage ends or one person passes away.
