Recording Separation Agreement


#1

Is there any violation of NC Statutes or State privacy laws by recording your separation agreement with the Register of Deeds without the consent or knowledge of your ex-spouse. The agreement contains salary and equitable distribution information. The agreement does not contain any language prohibiting the recording of the agreement or from it becoming public knowledge.


#2

No, but make sure your Separation Agreement does not prohibit recordation.


#3

Thanks Erin. There is no language whatsoever that addresses any kind of publication, recording or sharing of the agreement. Just wanted to double check that the agreement wasn’t already covered by some other law or statute.
