Alpharetta Attorney Preparing Your Prenuptial Agreements
A prenuptial or antenuptial agreement is a contract a couple enters into prior to marriage which governs what rights a spouse has in the event of divorce, separation or death of one of the spouses. While these agreements are a precaution that couples take in protecting their property in the event a divorce occurs, such agreements also help each spouse understand what the other spouse wants from the marriage.
There are many reasons why a couple would like to put a prenuptial agreement in place. Prenuptial agreements help individuals contemplating marriage avoid unpleasant surprises. Such agreements provide both individuals a clear idea as to what will happen if a separation or divorce occurs. Not only do these agreements direct the division of property owned by both spouses in the event a divorce occurs, these agreements also provide protection to children from a prior marriage so that they do not lose their rights to inherit or possess certain properties.
Having represented Georgia clients in family law matters for over 20 years, Faulhaber Family Law, LLC, understands the kinds of provisions that need to be included in every prenuptial agreement. We also understand how to tailor the language of these agreements in such a manner to fit the couple’s personal circumstances.
What Sorts Of Property Do Prenuptial Agreements Cover?
A Georgia prenuptial agreement provides protection regarding a variety of property and assets, including:
- Home and other real estate
- Business assets and interests
- Retirement benefits, IRAs and 401(k) plans
- Inherited property
- Bank accounts
- Other property owned jointly by the spouses
While prenuptial agreements are allowable in Georgia, these agreements still must comply with Georgia law to be valid. Our attorney understands the Georgia provisions. Any prenuptial agreement she drafts will take into account the law and fully address every sort of property.
