Pre and Postnuptial Agreements

PRENUPTIAL AND POSTNUPTIAL AGREEMENTS

While no one wants to consider a marriage ending while planning for the future, proactive steps should sometimes be taken in the form of prenuptial agreements. Georgia residents enjoying significant wealth need to protect the monies, assets and property they own, especially when there are children of earlier marriages deserving inheritance.

The attorneys at Stern & Edlin Family Law, P.C. have represented professional athletes, celebrities, and other individuals seeking to protect their assets and income with prenuptial or postnuptial agreements.

Postnuptial agreements are also known as reconciliation agreements. During the marriage, the couple seeks to protect individual incomes and assets if divorce or death should occur. In some cases, postnuptial agreements serve as modifications of prenuptial agreements after a spouse's financial picture changes. In some instances, if adultery is an issue during the marriage, a legal document can be drafted to impose serious financial consequences for being unfaithful again.

Entering into a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement as part of a marriage between two people of great wealth does not mean divorce is inevitable. In many cases, the firm's clients have peace of mind that assets are protected, regardless of future issues.
