The Benefits of a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement
Learn How Our North Atlanta Divorce Attorney Can Help
While it may not sound very romantic, signing a marital agreement before (prenuptial) or after (postnuptial) your marriage will guarantee that your assets and interests are protected in the case of divorce, separation, or death.
Because the topic of asset division can be quite complicated and rarely meets each spouse’s interests, the best time to make an agreement is when a couple still has love for each other and can have a mature discussion about this difficult issue.

Understanding the Basics of Nuptial Agreements
When drafting a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, it is highly recommended that both parties have a lawyer present to ensure that their rights are protected and the agreement is enforceable. Sandy Springs-based Divorce Attorney Ms. Brenner has more than 30 years of family law experience in Georgia and can provide you with the skilled legal counsel you need to create the right prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.
The division of property, assets, debts, and spousal support are the most common issues outlined in the agreement, but it can also include any financial responsibilities during the marriage, how disputes are to be resolved, and if at any point a prenup will become invalid (sunset clause). Terms must be agreed to by both spouses. You and your spouse may want to reevaluate the terms of your agreement every five years and work with a lawyer to make any necessary changes.
