Atlanta Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreement Lawyer

Confidential & Caring Legal Representation in Georgia

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.

Why Get a Pre or Postnuptial Agreement?

These agreements are used to protect pre-marital property from becoming divided in the unfortunate event of a divorce.

They can also be effective tools to:

  • Protect gifts from family members that occur during the course of the marriage
  • Guard a personal interest in a family business
  • Set parameters for alimony

Other Purposes for a Prenuptial Agreement

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are surprisingly versatile.

They are increasingly being used as estate planning vehicles to:

  • Promote tax savings
  • Control testamentary rights and obligations
  • Protect future inheritances of adult children in the event of remarriage later in life

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.
