Pre-marital & Post-marital Agreements

Consult With a Duplin County Family Law Attorney

If you are a newlywed or a soon-to-be married couple, a Duplin County lawyer from Hunter & Price, P.A. can help you plan for unforeseen circumstances with a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. Our family lawyers will be happy to work with you to protect your interests in both Kenansville and Wallace, NC.

What are "Prenups" & "Postnups?"

Simply put, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are arrangements that are made regarding the distribution of shared marital assets in the event of divorce. Establishing a marital agreement is a lot like purchasing a fire extinguisher, in the sense that you hope to never need it, but will be glad to have it if you ever do. As the names suggest, prenups are created before your wedding day, while postnups are made after you are married. Both serve the exact same purpose, they are just created at different times.

Premarital and postnuptial agreements can address matters such as:

  • Rights and obligations in property,
  • Spousal support,
  • The making of an estate plan,
  • Death benefits in a life insurance policy; and
  • Any other matter, including personal rights and obligations, not a violation of public policy or a criminal statute

It is important to note, however, that neither prenuptial nor postnuptial agreements can determine child custody arrangements, as these are made at the discretion of a judge with the child's best interests in mind. Still, establishing a marital agreement can be an invaluable tool to help make sure your assets are protected when it comes to property rights, spousal support, and inheritance rights.
