Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Trusted South Carolina Attorneys Assist with Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Experienced lawyers draft and enforce marital agreements in the Rock Hill area

Many couples choose to create prenuptial, or premarital, agreements before they wed or postnuptial agreements after they’ve tied the knot. Working out the terms of a potential settlement in advance — especially if your joint and separate assets are complex and/or vast — allows you and your significant other to decide how you wish your assets and debts to be divided in the event of a divorce or legal separation. The knowledgeable attorneys at Payne, Black & Pickelsimer, LLC work with couples in the Rock Hill area and throughout South Carolina to create fair and enforceable legal agreements that protect their interests.

Thorough South Carolina counselors advise clients on protecting their assets

Even though you are working on your agreement as a couple, it is important that each of you has his or her own family law attorney to represent you and your interests while protecting your rights. You will also want to make sure that your agreement is drafted correctly in the event that you do get divorced or become legally separated.

These agreements specifically address matters that may include:

  • Who gets what assets in the event that you decide to end your legal union
  • How finances and assets will be handled during the marriage
  • Spousal support terms
  • Any business ownership issues
  • What to do with your estate in the event that one of you dies
  • The handling of gifts, inheritances or trusts
  • Benefits and disability and insurance coverage

A prenup or postnup can also specify how different circumstances in the marriage may result in different outcomes during a divorce. For example, an infidelity clause may state that a partner who cheats forgoes his or her right to alimony.

Skilled attorneys handle challenges to prenups and postnups

Premarital and postnuptial agreements are legal contracts that are enforceable by law and can prove challenging to contest later. In the event that you signed an agreement and now wish to challenge it, we can advise you on your options and likelihood of success.

You may have valid grounds for challenging the agreement if any of the following occurred:

  • Your spouse did not disclose all of his or her assets or debts
  • You were unfairly pressured into signing the agreement
  • You were deceived into signing the contract

If necessary, we can litigate your matter in court. The attorneys at Payne, Black & Pickelsimer, LLC also represent clients who wish to enforce the terms of their prenuptial or postnuptial agreement that a soon-to-be ex wants to contest.
