- Protect partners in family business

At Boudreaux Law Firm, we regard prenuptial agreements as a positive for all parties involved, as it can be a tangible explanation of rights and obligations that are clearly established at the forefront in the case of a divorce. In a Georgia court of law, this prenuptial agreement is referenced and highly influential in determining the final rulings of your divorce. Our state is an equitable property division state, which means that a 50-50 property division is not always upheld. Therefore, a prenuptial agreement can play a significant role in ensuring you get fair division. It can also protect certain designated assets from being divided in a divorce and set written guidelines for certain properties in the event they are sold.
