Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements Lawyers Stockbridge & Atlanta

Stockbridge and McDonough family lawyers protecting your assets from those of your intended or existing spouse

Before the wedding, in a prenuptial agreement, or after the wedding, in a postnuptial agreement, Georgia law allows a couple to enter into their own contract that sets forth their financial obligations:

  • During the marriage
  • After termination of the marriage or divorce
  • Upon the death of a spouse

Prenuptial agreements list any assets, debts, property or savings that one party brings to the marriage. The postnuptial agreement is typically drafted during the marriage to keep any new assets, debts, businesses or other acquisitions separate from the marital assets.

Such agreements are commonly used to protect property that one or both parties owned prior to the marriage from becoming divided upon divorce, but it can also be effectively used to protect gifts from family members or to guard a personal interest in a family business.

Prenuptial agreements are also being used increasingly as estate planning vehicles to protect future inheritances of adult children in the event of remarriage later in life. A properly drafted prenuptial or postnuptial agreement allows a couple to separate and divorce promptly and without a costly legal battle.
