Should I get a prenuptial agreement?

Getting a prenuptial agreement is a personal decision, and it in no way reflects on the sanctity of your upcoming marriage. There are many reasons to get a prenup in North Carolina. For example, you may want to consider a prenuptial agreement if:

  • You already have children.
  • You own a business or are part of a family business.
  • You have assets that you prefer to keep separate.
  • You are worried about your debt or your partner’s debt.
  • You are sacrificing a good job/career in order to get married.
  • You want to ensure that your estate plans, such as the assets you want to leave to your children, are honored after your death.
