Prenuptial Agreement Attorney in Roswell & Alpharetta
A prenuptial agreement is a contract that is entered into by both parties before a marriage takes place.
The general idea of a prenuptial agreement is to provide an outline for how certain financial interests will be resolved in the case of the marriage ending in divorce.
Elyssa Williams is an experienced family law attorney in the state of Georgia and can work with you and your fiancee to create a legal and fair prenuptial agreement.
While the stereotype exists that a prenuptial agreement is only for couple who don’t think their marriage will last, that is simply not true.
A prenuptial can be used for a variety of legitimate purposes, even by couples with only the highest expectations for their marriage.
If any of the following conditions describe your situation, you might want to consider working with an attorney to draft a prenuptial agreement.
- You own a business. Using a prenuptial to separate your business finances from your personal life is a great idea to keep the business to yourself and also protect your spouse in case of business trouble
- There is a large inheritance. If you have received a large inheritance that is intended to be passed down on only one side of the family, you can use a prenuptial agreement to keep that money or property separate from your marriage
- Dramatic difference in incomes. If you or your fiancee makes far more than the other, a prenuptial might make sense to ensure that the marriage is about more than money. By keeping your money divided, you can focus on the important parts of your relationship.
A good prenuptial agreement can actually be a benefit to your marriage by taking away potential points of contention.
