Skilled Preparation Of Pre- And Postnuptial Agreements

Mistakes in the preparation of a pre- and postnuptial agreement can be extremely costly. For this reason, careful preparation of such agreements is vital. Ordway Law Group, LLC, has long prepared such agreements for our clientele in Sandy Springs, Alpharetta and throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area.

The Requirements Of Prenuptial Agreements In Georgia

At Ordway Law Group, LLC, our attorneys address the numerous reasons that clients seek to create prenuptial agreements. Some are getting married later in life and have acquired substantial assets they need to protect. Others are on their second or third marriage and want to ensure that children from a previous marriage have a claim to their estate.

Regardless of your personal reasons, our lawyers have the skill and experience to ensure your prenup details your wishes and is legally enforceable in the event of divorce.

As your legal counsel, we will address all the necessary issues to ensure the validity of your prenup:

  • Precise, detailed and enforceable language
  • Full disclosure of assets and property
  • Two witnesses at signing
  • Full understanding of both signing parties
  • Both parties signing under free will and not duress

The Requirements Of Postnuptial Agreements In Georgia

Much less common, but just as important are postnuptial agreements. These post-marital contracts are made after a couple is legally married. The creation and signing of postnups must be held to the same standards as with a prenuptial agreement in order to render the contract enforceable should the marriage dissolve.

As with prenups, a postnup may be needed for a variety of reasons, such as:

  • Significant change in income
  • Protecting a new business venture
  • Safeguard against adultery
  • As part of a marital reconciliation

In both pre- and postnuptial agreements, it is highly recommended that each party has independent legal counsel to advise them of their rights and options. However, understanding that issues surrounding marital agreements may be sensitive matters for you and your spouse or fiancé(e), our attorneys treat all involved parties with the respect and dignity they deserve.
