Your prenuptial agreement may not cover everything you hope

For couples in South Carolina, when things aren't going well, there are several options. They may consider mediation, or spend some time apart. They might try to work things out by themselves. Others, however, find that there is no way to reconcile their differences. In this situation, often the next best thing is to consider divorce. It is far healthier than remaining in a situation in which you are both unhappy.

Of course, if you know this is a possibility, it makes sense that you may want to take precautions to protect your assets. You never know how amicable you will be at the end of a relationship, so it can be sensible to attempt to come to an agreement while you both wish to settle things fairly. This is where prenuptial agreements can come in handy. However, they do not cover everything, so it is important to know which issues may still need to be settled in court.

These agreements are focused on financial matters. Therefore, any issues surrounding the division of your property is a fair thing to include. However, other matters such as child custody or provisions about behavior within the relationship are not permitted. It is also important to note, as this article on property division explains, that alimony cannot be wave din a prenuptial agreement.

Acquiring a fair divorce settlement can take time and you may benefit from an attorney's advice and support. He or she can weigh up your options and may be able to help you decide on the best way to proceed with your divorce.
