Georgia law allows a couple to enter into their own contract to delineate each party's financial obligations during the marriage. These contracts may be created either before or after the wedding and are respectively described as prenuptial or postnuptial agreements. While having a pre or postnuptial agreement in place is a sensible decision for couples at all income and asset levels, it is imperative for those with considerable resources.
Our Atlanta family law attorneys at Warner Bates can help you protect your assets and your future. Call us at (770) 951-2700 to discuss your potential prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.
These agreements are used to protect pre-marital property from becoming divided in the unfortunate event of a divorce.
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are surprisingly versatile.
A properly drafted prenuptial or postnuptial agreement may allow a couple to separate and divorce promptly and amicably without a costly legal battle. This makes them valuable assets for social and emotional reasons in addition to their obvious financial benefit.
Warner Bates can help you determine whether a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is appropriate for your circumstances. If so, our experienced family law attorneys can draft an agreement tailored to your specific needs and provide valuable guidance and representation in negotiating with the other party. Should it become necessary, we are highly qualified to provide litigation services in order to enforce the terms of the agreement.
With a deep understanding of Georgia law and decades of experience, our lawyers have developed proprietary terms that offer sophisticated and up-to-date strategies for protecting our clients' interests. We take pride in going the extra mile to ensure that the terms of the agreement are appropriate and beneficial for you, with a view towards anticipating all possible contingencies and challenges to enforcement.
Unlike many other firms, we never rely on boilerplate forms, which are often legally obsolete and are not adapted to a client's particular needs. Your prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is crafted for your unique situation, with careful attention to the changing laws that govern these important contracts. If you are married or contemplating a marriage, please contact an Atlanta family lawyer to discuss a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.
