Establishing Secure Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are often an uncomfortable subject to broach with your significant other. While some people may associate these types of agreements with divorce, they can be a valuable tool for financial planning and benefit many South Carolina families. EGJ Family Law attorneys have over 35 years of experience. We can thoroughly evaluate your family's circumstances to recommend and implement a thoughtful prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.

If you are considering a marital agreement, call EGJ Family Law at 843-352-4530 to discuss the benefits of a premarital plan to protect your assets and secure your financial resources.

What Are the Main Benefits?

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements benefit families in many ways, including:

  • Simplifying property division in the event of divorce
  • Shielding a spouse from the other's debt
  • Establishing clear financial responsibilities in marriage
  • Protecting a small business from dissolution
  • Creating a clear financial plan for marriage

Our lawyers will tailor your agreement to maximize your family's benefits. Our goal is to protect your financial stability and long-term interests.

Protecting the Integrity of Your Business

Creating a prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial agreement may be valuable for business owners. Divorce issues may impact small business when assets are divided between spouses. Our attorneys consider your business's future by ensuring that it will not be divided in the event of divorce. The entire company's assets would remain separate property and be protected from division.

Understanding Your Limitations

These agreements cannot completely outline marriage and divorce expectations. Your agreement will not hold up in court if it:

  • Contains child custody or child support decisions
  • Was signed involuntarily or under duress
  • Was agreed upon without full disclosure of assets or debts

Our lawyers will consider all aspects of your agreement and ensure that your agreement has every possibility of being implemented by a South Carolina family law court.
