Premarital And Separation Agreements
No one wants to think about the end of a marriage before it’s even begun. But premarital agreements, also known as prenuptial agreements, can provide peace of mind and mutual trust going into marriage. By the same token, a separation agreement helps smooth the way forward for an estranged couple who are going through a divorce without the need to engage in proceedings in court.
Based in Asheville, North Carolina, the dedicated legal team at Bull & Reinhardt, PLLC, represents individuals embroiled in family law matters throughout western North Carolina. Our attorneys have over 45 years of combined experience and are dedicated to helping you transition into — and out of — married life with confidence.
Practicing Family Law With Sensitivity And Efficiency
A premarital agreement helps resolve potential conflicts that could arise if the marriage is dissolved at some point in the future. Deciding on what each partner is entitled to before a divorce occurs is much less complex and less contentious than waiting until marital assets have become commingled. Premarital agreements are also essential to protect assets that have been acquired before marriage and to provide clarity for couples who are considering marriage.
A premarital agreement typically covers at least some of these factors:
- Division of property
- Division of financial assets
- Responsibility for debts
- Life insurance benefit rights
- Handling of joint or individual businesses
- Protecting and preserving separate property
In North Carolina, a legal separation agreement can be just as complex as a divorce judgment. For couples who don’t wish to pursue litigation, but do need matters settled, our team will help draft an agreement that covers such matters as custody and visitation of minor children, debt obligations, asset division, and spousal and child support.
