Pre-Marital Agreements

Charleston Pre-marital Agreements

 

The current trend is for parties to enter into a pre-nuptial, or “antenuptial” agreement prior to marriage.  In the event of a divorce later, this agreement should control as long as certain criteria are met.

 

A pre-nuptial agreement can do the following:

 

  • Settle the property rights of the parties

 

  • Provide for child support

 

  • Provide for the allocation of custodial responsibility and the determination of decision-making responsibility for the children of the parties (as long as it is later determined to be in the best interest of the minor children)

 

  • Provide for the payment or waiver of spousal support by either party

 

  • Otherwise settle and compromise issues arising from the marital rights and obligations of the parties

 

 

To ensure that a pre-nuptial agreement can stand up in court in the event of a divorce, one should have an attorney draft the document.  If presented with a pre-nuptial agreement to sign, one should also consult an attorney to review the document with you.
