Our team encourages more couples to make pre-marital agreements, and we have the right experience to help you through every step of the process.
If you are engaged to be married, it’s only natural to feel excited, and it’s also understandable to want that excitement to last for as long as possible. However, we at the office of Robert G. Spaugh, Attorney at Law feel strongly that it’s important to enter a marriage with clear eyes and a realistic idea of what the future might hold, and that includes the possibility that you and your new spouse might someday divorce. Admitting that possibility will not prophetically bring it to pass, and taking steps to prepare for that scenario will make the divorce process much easier and more straightforward if it does happen. If you are interested in making a pre-marital agreement, we encourage you to reach out to our team to help you through the process. We’ll help you draft an agreement that both parties are satisfied with and that will protect you both as well.
Our team knows from experience just how ugly the divorce process can get when the two parties fight over who gets what in the separation, and we want to help you avoid that unpleasantness. People who make pre-marital agreements with their fiancé(e)s are able to clearly list the property and assets each of them own individually, as well as their individual debts, and give clear instructions for what should happen to these things in the event that they do divorce. Instead of having to fight it out when your feelings have soured, you can mutually agree on a contingency plan while everyone is clear-headed and civil. In the worst-case scenario, you’ll save a lot of stress, and in the best case, you won’t need the agreement anyway.
We are proud to serve the Winston-Salem, North Carolina community, and we want to help you do what’s best for your future. If you are interested in creating a pre-marital agreement with your partner, we encourage you to give us a call.
