Prenuptial-Agreements-lawyer-in-charlotte-ncPrenuptial Agreement

Getting married is one of life’s biggest decisions – and greatest risks. North Carolina law provides a way to reduce the risk by allowing you to enter into a prenuptial agreement. A prenuptial agreement is an agreement between two engaged parties about what will happen to their property if they divorce. Much of the time, the point is to protect one spouse’s or the other’s property acquired before the marriage. In order to be valid, a prenuptial agreement has to be in writing, and signed by both parties in the couple.   more…

A separation agreement is a contract between separating spouses that can be made binding upon a couple by their signatures. North Carolina is unique from most other states in that spouses can enter into a separation agreement and have it be binding without a judge’s approval. Parties can reach agreements as to how child custody will be divided, how much spousal support will be paid, property division, the amount of child support, and who will claim the tax exemption for the children, among other matters.   more…

Unfortunately, not all rights that are given to married couples apply to those partners who are not legally married. Same-sex marriage is not currently legal in North Carolina, so many gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender couples create legal documents for their own protection and interests.

Some common issues covered by a partnership agreement include durable and healthcare powers of attorney, child custody arrangements, property settlement and more.   more…
