What cannot be included in a prenuptial agreement?
In North Carolina, a prenuptial agreement has limits on what it can and cannot include, and the agreement can be found void if it includes prohibited material. For example, a prenuptial agreement cannot:
- Determine child custody or child support issues in advance of a potential divorce.
- Waive your right to alimony in case of a divorce.
- Designate responsibilities for non-financial personal or household issues, such as chores or child-rearing decisions.
- Offer an incentive (financial or otherwise) for divorce.
- Require you or your spouse to do something illegal.
