Georgia law allows couples to enter into their own contract which can set first the financial obligations during the marriage, in the event of a divorce and can also address obligations upon the death of one of the parties. Such an agreement is commonly used to protect property that one or both parties owned prior to the marriage from becoming divided upon divorce. Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements can also be used to effectively protect gifts from family members or to guard a personal interest in a family business. These agreements are also being used as estate planning vehicles to protect future inheritances of adult children in the event of remarriage later in life. A properly drafted prenuptial or postnuptial agreement may also allow a couple to separate and divorce promptly and amicably without a costly legal battle.
