Protecting your assets in Divorce can begin before you get married.
If you have children from a previous marriage or assets that you acquired
before your marriage that you would want to protect in case of a future Divorce,
a premarital agreement is something you may want to consider. Parties can
agree in advance.
For a premarital agreement to be enforceable, in the courts eyes, certain legal requirements must be met.
1) Both parties must sign the agreement voluntarily and clearly understand it.
2) Both parties must fully disclose their assets and debts.
3) The contract must meet the requirements of the law.
The most common defense for a premarital agreement is that it was no voluntarily executed: For example, it was signed under misleading circumstances.
North Carolina courts look at multiple factors when a premarital agreement is involved.
