Chapel Hill NC Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer

Durham County Prenuptial Agreement Attorney

Many people associate prenuptial and postnuptial agreements with great wealth and Hollywood glamour. You do not need to be rich to benefit from a well-written postnuptial or prenuptial agreement. It protects your rights and puts important issues on the table for discussion.

The Irwin Law Firm, PLLC, is devoted entirely to divorce and family law, including collaborative law and mediation. Founding attorney and certified mediator Laura Irwin has found that helping clients work issues out in advance reduces potential stress on a marriage and helps the engaged couple communicate more effectively. We serve clients of all incomes who are marrying for the first or second time.

Why Should You Write a Prenuptial Agreement?

A marriage is an important emotional and financial commitment. A prenuptial agreement is a contract which spells out how the assets of the marriage will be divided in case of death or divorce. This can be helpful if you:

  • Have children or grandchildren from a previous marriage
  • Expect to be licensed soon in law or medicine
  • Own a business, stock options or a large nest egg
  • Own a home or condo
  • Have a large retirement account
  • Have elderly parents

What Are the Advantages of Postnuptial Agreements?

Many clients contact the Irwin Law Firm, PLLC, when changes occur in the family. A parent may decide to stay home to raise the children. Postnuptial agreements protect their rights, and address the impact of being out of the workforce, including retirement planning. Other clients create postnuptial agreements if the marriage is not working out, expect to receive a large inheritance, or wish to protect the inheritance rights of stepchildren. Other clients write a postnup to plan to provide for expensive hobbies.
