What can a prenuptial agreement include?

A prenuptial agreement in North Carolina can protect you and your spouse in a wide variety of ways. For example, it can:

  • Outline which assets are owned separately versus which are owned jointly.
  • Provide protection from debts if one spouse is carrying a heavy load.
  • Provide for children from previous relationships.
  • Define who will manage specific financial responsibilities during the marriage, such as taxes.
  • Make sure heirlooms, stakes in family businesses and other family property stay in the birth family.
  • Add to and protect estate plans.
  • Ease the process of equitable property distribution in the unfortunate case of a divorce.
