A postnuptial agreement is similar to a premarital agreement, but is entered into by a couple who is already married. Similarly to a premarital agreement, a postnuptial agreement is limited in scope to issues related to property and alimony.
It cannot extend to child custody, child support, and other such provisions, which are determined as part of the legal separation and divorce process.
In most cases, separation agreements are negotiated between attorneys who are experienced in divorce and other related family law matters. By working with a family law firm like Routh Law, spouses can create an agreement that fully meets the specific needs of their family without litigation.
Separation agreements are private contracts. To be valid, separation agreements must be in writing, they must be signed by both spouses, and both signatures must be notarized.
Separation agreements are not required by law, but these agreements can be tremendously empowering for spouses going through divorce. Separation agreements set clear expectations for both spouses about who will be responsible for things such as bills, child care, and the family home during separation. In addition, separation agreements can help spouses work through issues such as property division, child custody, child support, and spousal support without litigation. Couples may ask that a separation agreement be made part of the final divorce order.
Similar to separation agreements, prenuptial agreements must be in writing and signed by both spouses prior to marriage. Prenuptial agreements can provide terms terms related to property rights, entitlement to alimony, and inheritance rights, however, these agreements cannot limit child support.
Kelly is very responsive and knowledgeable. Going through this process was very difficult and she was there every step of the way. Any time I had a question, she was there to answer and walk me through it. If you want someone who will be by your side every step of the way, Kelly Routh is the attorney for you!
Amazing! 5 stars is not enough to describe the professionalism, knowledge, and determination of Kelly and Brittany. Kelly agreed to take my case after I was run around for 15 months by another Charlotte attorney. I explained my situation and my frustration and Kelly took my case as if she was there from day one. Her knowledge and experience gave her the upper hand and finished my case in just a few months. Without Kelly, I don’t know where my case would be right now. I do know that I went from paying $1750 per month to $750! Kelly is amazing and I would highly recommend her to anyone. She is the best attorney in Charlotte.
If you are reading this review then you have come to the right place for one of the best, if not the best family law attorneys for the greater Charlotte area! As a repeat client, it has been a pleasure having Kelly represent me during not-so-pleasant times. She has all of the attributes one could ask for in an attorney period. Look no further for an attorney that is clear, concise, flexible, and willing to represent you the way you want to be represented.
