Already married? Talk to one of our family law attorneys about a postnuptial or antenuptial agreement, which can offer some of the same protections as a prenuptial agreement.


Do I Need a Prenuptial Agreement in Georgia?

Unfortunately, prenups have a bad connotation in many people’s minds. Some individuals believe bringing up a prenup can reflect negatively on a marriage’s future, or that they are a tool for the rich to protect their assets against a less-wealthy future spouse. In reality, our pre-nuptial agreement lawyers can sit down with you and your future spouse to explain that a prenuptial agreement can be an important planning tool that can benefit both spouses before entering a marriage.


A well-crafted prenuptial agreement can:

  • Protect spouses from unforeseen debts entered into before a marriage
  • Help protect your children in the event of a divorce
  •  Specify financial responsibilities in your new union. If you have a prior marriage and are paying child support or alimony

Sometimes, in the event of a high-asset contested divorce, in the absence of a prenuptial agreement, separate or premarital property can actually lose its ‘separate’ status, therefore becoming eligible for subdivision in the divorce. With all of the above taken into consideration, it isn’t hard to see that a prenuptial agreement crafted by a knowledgeable family law attorneys can set a strong foundation for your new marriage.
