Even if you are not formally married, you may be in a deeply committed relationship. Whether you are planning on formally tying the knot or not, the same legal issues that affect married couples can also affect you. We offer a number of services to unmarried couples in South Carolina.
We can help you to apply for a marriage license if you are seeking formal recognition of your union.
If you have been cohabiting for some time, you may already be recognized as married according to common law. We can help you to establish whether this is indeed the case. If you are in a common-law marriage, you are entitled to the same rights as a formally married couple, including tax benefits.
We can assist you with drafting up a fair and balanced prenuptial agreement.
A premarital or “prenuptial” agreement is a legal contract you sign with your fiancé when you become engaged. The agreement is a binding legal contract which stipulates what will happen in the case of a death or divorce. Your premarital agreement governs the division of property and alimony obligations of each spouse.
How can we help?
- We can inform of your legal rights and responsibilities.
- We can help you and your prospective spouse to make sure you are designing a contract that will be fair to you both.
- We can also ensure that your prenuptial agreement will be considered fair and free of duress, coercion, or fraud.
- We can also revisit old contracts if circumstances have changed since you originally signed your prenuptial agreement.
