Prenuptial, Postnuptial and Other Marital Agreements
The law in Georgia can be very traditional, assuming that a marriage will last forever. All assets acquired during a marriage, as well as retirement accounts and some other assets, are considered joint property. If you bring property or assets to a marriage that you would like to keep separate, you may want to speak to an attorney about a prenuptial agreement. Postnuptial agreements are also gaining in popularity as financial tools for couples who are already married. Click here to learn more about marital agreements.
