Atlanta Post-Nuptial Agreement Attorneys
A post-nuptial agreement is a document that is legally binding and can apply to a wide range of subject matters and issues, including financial issues, spousal maintenance, asset division, separation, or death of a spouse. Additionally, a post-nuptial agreement can also include information about the spouse’s wills, trusts, and other legal documents. This agreement is formed after a couple is married, as pre-nuptial agreements are only valid if they are created before the marriage. Post-nuptial agreements are a good option for couples who do not want to sign an agreement before marriage, but still want the option of negotiating and developing a spousal agreement after marriage.
A post-nuptial agreement, just like a pre-nuptial agreement, must be signed by both spouses voluntarily and cannot contain anything illegal. At Bushnell & Drye, LLC our attorneys will help you draft and finalize a post-nuptial agreement that meets the goals, needs, and circumstances of you and your spouse.
Precaution and Protection
Not every couple has a pre or post-nuptial agreement. However, all couples, married or unmarried, should consider a pre or post-nuptial agreement as a precautionary measure to protect their assets. If a couple thinks they need an agreement, it is suggested that you seek out an experienced Atlanta family law attorneys who would be able to represent the interests of each party. Spouses should have separated attorneys, in the event the negotiation or marriage breaks down. Keep in mind, these agreements are legally binding documents, so an attorney should draft these incompliance with Georgia law.
When most people get married they think they will be together forever. However, this is not always the case and it is important that the couple act responsibly and plan for the unexpected. By writing the pre or post-nuptial agreement, a couple can address trust issues within the marriage and address how they want the marriage to progress. An agreement can also spell out how each spouse wants their future affairs to be handled. If a divorce or separation occur, the spouses can rely on their agreement and know that their property and assets are protected.
