It's possible to resolve a large variety of costly family law disputes through the preparation of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. These are extremely important documents because these types of documents will often be determinative of your rights and obligations prior to entering into a marriage or after a marriage ends.

An improperly drafted agreement may result in possible legal challenges. The attorneys at Payne & Associates, PLLC, have substantial experience in preparing such agreements and will help you to avoid any potentially costly mistakes. From our Winston-Salem office, we serve clients throughout the North Carolina Triad in a range of family law matters.

What Are Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements?

Prenuptial agreements are contracts couples enter into prior to a marriage or civil union. Such agreements govern what is to occur in case of divorce or death of one of the spouses. Besides protecting one's property and rights if a divorce occurs, prenuptial agreements allow couples to better understand what each spouse expects of the other during the course of a marriage.

Couples prepare postnuptial agreements after entering a marriage or civil union addressing various marital issues and providing recourse if certain circumstances arise. Sometimes couples use a postnuptial agreement to modify the terms of a prenuptial agreement. In either case, it's important that enforcement provisions be worded carefully. Both parties need to understand the consequences of certain actions.

Our lawyers know how to prepare such agreements in accordance with North Carolina law. The agreements we prepare also take into account every asset the couple owns, including home, real estate, bank accounts, retirement accounts, business assets and trusts. We craft such agreements to meet your needs and the needs of your family and ensure that you are protected as you rely on your agreement through the years.
