Nobody likes to think they will get a divorce. However, if you have premarital assets or debts, or this is your second marriage and you want to protect what you do have for your biological children, it is important to think about what could happen if a divorce should occur. A prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can address these issues and protect your interests. A prenuptial agreement is executed before the marriage, and a postnuptial agreement is executed after the marriage.
At the law firm of Jody A. Miller, Attorney at Law, in Atlanta, Georgia, we have more than 20 years of experience advising clients on the features of premarital and postnuptial agreements. If you need advice on prenuptial or postnuptial agreements, contact us to schedule an appointment.
The Benefits of Prenuptial / Postnuptial Agreements
For many couples, a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is an effective tool for handling the division and protection of assets. A thorough prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can include provisions for:
- Dividing marital property
- Protecting premarital property
- Spousal support (alimony)
- Dividing retirement funds
- Distributing debts
- And more
Prenuptial or postnuptial agreements are also effective for couples entering into a second marriage or couples with a significant age difference. They can help avoid familial disputes between stepparents and children, and have specific provisions regarding the division of assets depending on the years of marriage.
At the law firm of Jody A. Miller, we explain the legal issues and consult with clients on whether a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement would be beneficial in the event of a divorce. For couples who have already agreed on the terms, we can review and draft the agreement on their behalf.
