Prenuptial Agreements Archives

The psychology of property division is crucial to the process

Property division is a critical factor in every divorce, and sometimes it can be one of the most difficult and argument-inducing factors as well. The financial accounts; the money; the property, such as homes or land; the objects, such as furniture and vehicles; all of these things get thrown on the chopping block and the two splitting spouses need to work it out.

Key issue with marital contracts: enforceability

Many people across the country have changed their minds about so-called marital contracts in recent years, now fully appreciating their strong utility as planning devices for both soon-to-be and already married partners.

Lifestyle clauses in marital contracts: Are they enforceable?

As big of a deal as marital agreements generally seemed to be even a few short years ago, such contracts are much more common -- if not exactly commonplace -- in Georgia and throughout the rest of the country these days.

OK, you finally got around to signing that contract a few of your friends were constantly reminding you about. It wasn’t that bad -- an online boilerplate document entitled “Prenuptial Agreement” that you and the soon-to-be spouse ran through in about 15 minutes and executed moments ago, just hours before the wedding.

Survey says: Improved economy spurs growing interest in prenups

Plenty of anecdotal evidence indicates that people in bygone years and decades rued ever bringing up the topic of a marital contract with their soon-to-be spouse or just-married partner. For years, media stories regularly trashed the idea of a couple executing a prenuptial agreement or postmarital contract, stating that such pacts were like cold water on a fire -- that is, the antithesis of love.

Postnuptial agreements gaining favor in many high-asset divorces

In recent years, marital contracts have emerged with greater clarity in the American divorce landscape in Georgia and nationally, with both prenuptial agreements and, to a lesser degree, post-nuptial agreements being increasingly recognized as instruments that can effectively identify and provide for the security of significant assets.
