Schedule a Consultation with Our Jacksonville Family Lawyers

Many people are confused about what prenuptial agreements actually entail, or think that they are only for those with significant assets in their name. In recent years, more couples opt to work with an attorney to draft a prenuptial agreement that advocates for their best interests throughout their marriage. Prenuptial agreements can work to establish separate property before the marriage or as an estate planning guide to ensure adult children receive what they are entitled to. At Welch and Avery, our lawyers have extensive experience identifying potential areas of conflict and can help start your marriage on a solid foundation.

Schedule a consultation with our prenuptial and post-nuptial agreement lawyers in Jacksonville by calling (910) 405-8459. Whether you are thinking about getting married or have already tied the knot and want to discuss your options, we can provide guidance on your next steps.

Why do you need a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement in North Carolina?

Prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements outline any range of rights and obligations that can arise from a marriage between two people, with the exception of child support or child custody.

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can address the following issues:

  • Separate property
  • Marital property
  • Property division
  • Spousal support
  • Life insurance
  • Wills
  • Debt repayment

Under the Uniform Prenuptial Agreement Act (UPAA) in North Carolina, any agreement must be made in writing and signed by both spouses. These agreements can be amended in the future should any situation change. In some instances, such as whether both parties voluntarily signed the agreement or when one person did not disclose their financial obligations, a premarital and post-marital agreement may not be enforceable. Working with a seasoned family lawyer can ensure an agreement is in good faith and reflects your best interests during a marriage.

Organized. Professional. Competent.

To be legal and enforceable, any prenuptial or postnuptial agreement must abide by the standards outlined in the law. The Jacksonville prenuptial and postnuptial agreement lawyers at Welch and Avery understand the nuances of the law as they relate to these agreements. We have the skill and experience necessary to protect your interests against the various circumstances that life presents.
