Atlanta Postnuptial Agreement Attorney

Maintain Control Over Your Assets Even After You Are Married

Postnuptial agreements, created after a marriage has begun, redefine asset possession so that both spouses can be sure that their financial situation will be in a good place in the case of unforeseen circumstances like divorce. Some couples are hesitant to even consider creating one of these agreements because they consider it “planning for failure,” but in actuality, these agreements can provide both parties with peace of mind and build trust that leads to a longer, happier union.

Shapiro Law Group is led by a highly experienced family law attorney who can assist you with postnuptial agreement drafting throughout the Atlanta area.

Why Create a Postnuptial Agreement?

There are several reasons why couples may want a postnuptial agreement. The longer a relationship lasts, the more the life changes. Accidents and debt could leave you in dire need if a divorce were to ever arise, which is why establishing a postnuptial agreement is helpful for reducing stress and maintaining peace of mind. Likewise, a spouse may come into possession of valuable assets that benefit both spouses, resulting in both agreeing to a postnuptial contract to ensure they can continue living comfortably if their marriage dissolved.

Even if you have already signed a prenuptial agreement, you may still want to consider creating a postnuptial in 5 or 10 years to reflect the changes in your financial situation.

In a prenuptial agreement, you can set terms for:

  • Which spouse pays alimony in the event of a divorce
  • Protecting assets for children you had before your marriage
  • How debt would be divided between spouses in a divorce
  • How property is divided if one spouse passes away
  • Establishing who retains ownership of property to assets brought in before the marriage began

These are just some of the common items defined in a postnuptial agreement, but they can be much more specific depending on your circumstances. Another major benefit of these agreements is that they can make the divorce process much easier if one were to occur.
