Protecting Your Future From Divorce

Many people have a false notion that a prenuptial agreement is only for wealthy individuals or people with doubts about the relationship. The truth is that a prenuptial agreement is much like a safety net in that you may not want to have one, but you will be glad it is there when you need it.

At Stauff & Gross, PLLC, we understand that there is no telling what the future may bring, so it pays to prepare for the worst while hoping for the best. Our North Carolina attorneys have years of experience in all areas of family law, including prenuptial agreements, and we are ready to put those skills and knowledge to work for you.

How A Prenuptial Agreement Can Help You

Prenuptial agreements help engaged couples preemptively decide how to manage financial issues like spousal support and property division should a marriage end in separation and divorce. They can also be used to document each spouse’s separate property, setting forth in writing items that do not count as marital property. In the event of a divorce, the couple can enforce the prenuptial agreement to preserve separate property rights.

Although they may not seem particularly romantic, prenuptial agreements can help couples make fair, equitable decisions about how to manage their property, long before conflict surfaces. Discussing financial affairs when both parties are happy can spare them both a substantial amount of emotional turmoil and conflict down the road.
