Premarital Agreements

In North Carolina, premarital agreements are governed by the Uniform Premarital Agreement Act found in Chapter 52B of the North Carolina General Statutes. A premarital agreement is an agreement between prospective spouses made in contemplation of marriage and to be effective upon marriage.

Postnuptial Agreements

Spouses can contract with each other during their marriage.  A contract signed by spouses during the marriage which addresses spousal support and/or the division of property is known as a “Postnuptial Agreement.”  Postnuptial agreements are often used in situations where spouses separate, but are still legally married, and intend to reconcile.

Paternity

North Carolina law provides a mechanism to establish paternity when a child is born to unmarried parents. The action to establish paternity must be filed before the child’s eighteenth birthday.

Separation and Property Settlement Agreements

Settlement of disputed issues is always preferable to litigation.  If you and your spouse can agree to the terms of your separation and property division, then you can sign a separation and property settlement agreement.
