Prenuptial or Antinuptial Agreements
Prenuptial or antenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements are the most effective tool in eliminating or reducing the subjectivity of an estate during the course of and after a divorce. Either agreement can specifically designate what property each spouse or potential spouse will receive in the event that they divorce at some time in the future. Prenuptial or antenuptial agreements are agreements that are executed by two people prior to their marriage. Postnuptial agreements are executed by a couple sometime after their marriage. In Georgia, the most important part of drafting an enforceable pre or post-nuptial agreement is ensuring that each of the spouses has disclosed, in writing, all of their financial affairs including assets and debts. That complete disclosure needs to be attached to any prenuptial or postnuptial agreement in order for a court to determine that it should apply and be binding if the spouses later decide to divorce.

An essential part of any estate plan is a Will to tell the world how to distribute assets and to provide for guardianship of any minor children. If an individual does not have a Will, the state will determine the disposition of assets and guardianship of any minor children.
