Providing Reliable Direction In Prenuptial, Postnuptial Agreements

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are reliable methods of protecting your assets in case of a divorce. While some people may hesitate with creating them, others view them as common-sense “insurance policy” that spells out how your assets will be divided in the event of a divorce.

The major difference between them is that a prenuptial agreement is prepared before the marriage, while a postnuptial agreement is made after the marriage. As an experienced family law firm, Lise S. Kaplan, LLC, in Macon, Georgia, has the knowledge to help you prepare such agreements that will ultimately give you some peace of mind if your marriage fails.

Protecting You In Many Ways

You enter a marriage as a lifelong commitment, but roughly half of marital unions in the U.S. end in divorce. The agreements are practical in that they:

  • Protect you if you are marrying for a second or third time. Many people who were previously married are already established financially. They want to protect the assets acquired before the marriage.
  • Protect the inheritance rights of your beneficiaries, ensuring that, if you die, the assets you designate will go to your children and grandchildren from past marriages.
  • Minimize the amount of spousal support in the event of a divorce.
  • Protect you if you are marrying someone who has a lot of debt. As a result, you won’t be responsible for your spouse’s debt if the marriage ends.

Such agreements are crucial in that they define exactly how you wish to protect your assets. Ms. Kaplan and her knowledgeable team will provide personalized service, giving you the attention you need and provide much needed legal guidance.
