For couples that have decided to get married, there is excitement and joy, whether it’s their first marriage or their fourth. Even so, with unforeseen events and the high incidence of divorce, many view prenuptial or postnuptial agreements as a way to safeguard their personal assets or property. Because every individual brings a unique set of interests into a marriage, it’s important to consult a lawyer to ensure that your documents are drafted in the best way to protect you.
While the state of Georgia has established a framework for child support and custody, specific language may be added to a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement to ensure that certain assets go to biological children, for instance. These types of agreements may be drafted prior to marriage (prenuptial agreement) or after the marriage takes place (postnuptial agreement). Any specific language concerning custody or child visitation are subject to state review.
