A prenuptial agreement, also known as a “prenup,” is a contract that is agreed upon prior to marriage that divides the couple’s assets in the case of divorce. Anyone who wishes to protect his or her pre-marital property should consider entering into a prenuptial agreement prior to marriage, and they are enforceable under Georgia law.
While it is likely the court presiding over your divorce case will approve and incorporate the prenuptial agreement into your final divorce decree, the court has a wide discretion in this area on how, if at all, to enforce the agreement. It is important to seek help from your attorney in this matter so that we can achieve the most favorable outcome for you.
