Prenuptial agreements have a bad reputation, although they really shouldn’t. Many people view these pre-marriage financial agreements as an assumption that the marriage won’t last and so may not place the protections around their assets that they should. At Vayman & Teitelbaum, P.C., we view prenuptial agreements in the same way as home or auto insurance: You’re not planning on your house burning down, but it would be unwise not to have insurance in place if the unthinkable happens.

If you’re engaged or talking about marriage, a conversation about a prenup is likely on the table. An Alpharetta, GA, prenup lawyer from our firm can evaluate your financial situation and goals and draft a prenup that protects both. A prenup isn’t bad – call our offices today to learn more.

What Can An Alpharetta Prenup Lawyer Do For Me?

Prenuptial agreements are legal documents that state how assets and debts will be divided if a couple divorces. A prenup can also protect certain assets or an inheritance from being considered community property (and thus divisible in a divorce). Prenups can also establish spousal support (alimony) or set grounds under which alimony won’t be available. A prenup lawyer can draft an agreement that protects your financial interests and ensures that whatever the future holds, everything you’re working for will remain yours.

A prenuptial agreement cannot establish custody or assign child support, though. If you have children and divorce, a judge will look at your situation and determine an arrangement in your child’s best interest. However, there are plenty of other provisions you can include in a prenuptial agreement, and we can help you learn more about them.

Protecting Your Interests In Case Of Divorce

Prenuptial agreement lawyers in Alpharetta don’t just write prenups. They can also advise you whether one that your fiancé presents you is favorable to you or unfair. If a prenup is obviously more favorable to one spouse, it may not hold up in court. We can help you negotiate a fairer agreement to protect your interests, even if you don’t have many assets of your own.

We often advise clients to have their own lawyer if they are considering placing a prenup. You deserve to be protected, even if your soon-to-be spouse has more money or assets than you do. We’ll help you understand your rights and options and negotiate on your behalf if you wish. We can also help couples revise a prenuptial agreement or draft a post-nuptial agreement that is more equitable and reflects a changed financial situation.
