Post and Premarital Agreements

Couples getting married who have a high net worth, children from prior marriages, second marriages later in life, substantial assets, separate property, business assets, inheritance, and other complex components, often seek a written agreement to address these concerns in the event of a divorce.
If the agreement is prepared and signed prior to the marriage, it is known as a prenuptial or premarital agreement. When completed after the couple is married, it is called a postnuptial or postmarital agreement. Both are important documents that can impact your future in a variety of ways. For this reason, these documents should be prepared and reviewed by a seasoned family law attorney before signing.

At Capital to Coast NC Law Group, we have extensive combined experience in helping clients with these and other family law matters.

We understand the hesitancy individuals often feel about entering into a premarital agreement. We are here to provide sound counsel and ensure that if you decide to move forward with a pre/postnuptial agreement, it will thoroughly address your needs and protect your interests.
With prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, issues that are addressed if the marriage is dissolved include:
Asset Division

Couples can determine in advance what property is considered part of the estate and how it will be divided if the marriage is dissolved.

Alimony / Spousal Support

Pre and postnuptial agreements can specify how much a spouse will be paid if the couple divorces.

Estate Planning

If the couple is bringing in children from previous marriages, a prenup can be a helpful estate planning tool that can specify which property will be passed onto their children when they die.

When we needed an attorney recently we contacted Kellie Gonzalez and could not have been more pleased with our interactions with her and the outcome she obtained for us.

From the very beginning, she was professional, understanding, and took great care to explain the legal process to us. She went far beyond what one would normally expect from an attorney and in doing so successfully achieved the goal we hoped for. We highly recommend Kellie Gonzalez for any occasion that calls for an attorney. – K, Family Law Client

I am writing to thank all of you, for assisting with the completion of the will and other key documents.

I appreciated the time, effort, patience, and the many questions answered which were all associated with this process. It is finally “done” and I can now relax and feel that my kids will be appropriately protected. Thanks again for your dedication, attention and positive experience! I’ll be sure to refer others to your office!! – D, Estate Planning Client

They were wonderful. Very efficient and great communicators.

I was very nervous about this process and they made it very simple and took all of the guesswork out of it. I will definitely use them again. – C, Will Preparation Client

Received a speeding ticket while passing through NC.

Was required to personally show in court or hire legal representation. Living 10 hours away, I opted for the latter. Great decision, but hiring them to represent me was a better one. They resolved my case much better than I could have ever hoped. Courteous, professional and obviously capable. – G, Out of State Traffic Violation Client

We used Kellie as our real estate attorney when purchasing a home.

Kellie and her staff walked us through the entire process from start to finish and promptly answered all our questions or concerns! I would highly recommend using her team to anyone looking for a real estate attorney! – M, Real Estate Closing Client
