What a Prenuptial Agreement can do for you? http://www.knclawfirm.com/atlanta/prenuptial-agreement- attorneys/ There are a number of things that a prenuptial agreement in Atlanta can do for you and your partner. You should be aware of these before you enter into a marriage or domestic partnership. A good agreement can make married life a lot easier and it should definitely be considered. Some of the things that a prenup can do for you and your spouse include: ● Protect a business or other property from future court action and legal battles over divorce. ● Ensure that legal conflicts over property and money will be settled through arbitration rather than a costly court battle. ● Ensure that you will not be held responsible for your spouse’s debts if you divorce. ● Keep your spouse from stopping you from leaving money or property to somebody else through your will. ● Keep creditors from coming after you to collect debts that your ex spouse incurred. ● Keep your spouse from claiming ownership of your business or interfering in its operations. ● Determine the amount of alimony that will be paid. ● Protect retirement investments and savings from legal action by your ex spouse. ● Protect any intellectual property rights that you hold or are entitled to from your ex spouse. ● Make sure communal property is disposed of or divided in a fair way. This means that persons with a lot of money or property and business owners should definitely consider getting a marriage prenuptial agreement. Anybody who has a large amount of investments, real estate, intellectual property rights or savings should undoubtedly look into one. To make sure the agreement is binding and will protect you, you will need to work with an experienced family law attorney. Such an attorney can help you draw up a prenup that is valid, legal and effective. That way you can have the protection you need and protect your spouse’s rights as well. There are also some things that prenuptial agreements generally cannot cover these include: ● Child support ● Child Custody ● Visitation rights ● Education and other specific details about raising children. An experienced lawyer can tell you what you can and cannot include in the prenup. That way you won’t waste time writing one that contains instructions that are not legally binding. More importantly you will know that the agreement will hold up in court and will provide you and your spouse with the protection that you need.
