Atlanta Postnuptial Agreement Attorney
If you and your spouse need to draft a postnuptial agreement, contact the experienced Atlanta postnuptial agreement attorneys at Kessler & Solomiany, LLC for help. While people do not get married with the intention to divorce, sometimes unforeseen events occur that leave spouses needing to get out of their marriage. In the event of a divorce, having a postnuptial agreement can save both parties time and money.
A postnuptial agreement is like a prenuptial agreement in that it is a contract between the spouses that typically details some of the practical details, like how property will be divided and how child custody and visitation will be handled, in the event of divorce. However, a prenuptial agreement is entered into by the spouses before marriage, while a postnuptial agreement is entered into by the spouses after marriage. Couples who choose to draft a postnuptial agreement may be happy in their marriage; they may just decide that they want to safeguard themselves in the event of a divorce, or circumstances may have changed during the course of the marriage, and considering a postnuptial agreement is warranted.

Why You Need a Lawyer
The law can be frustrating and complicated. To write a legally enforceable agreement, certain conditions must be met. Understanding how postnuptial agreements need to be written, and what procedural process must be followed in order for them to be valid can be complex.
Having a lawyer who understands what needs to be in your agreement and what must happen so that it is enforceable can save you time and money in the event that you and your partner divorce. Additionally, an experienced family law attorney will know how the provisions of your agreement may affect other things, like taxes, in the event of a divorce. A lawyer can help you make informed decisions with regards to your property and other interests.
Having an attorney draft your postnuptial agreement is the best way to protect you and your spouse’s interest. Attorneys know how to draft an enforceable agreement, may be aware of certain consequences of your decisions that you were not, and may think of things you may not have overlooked.

Cases We Handle
Our firm handles all types of family law cases, including postnuptial agreements. Over the years we have seen how having a postnuptial agreement can benefit divorcing spouses. A well-drafted agreement will be enforceable and will include provisions for issues that can become contentious when marriages end. Some common issues to deal with in a postnuptial agreement can include:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Spousal support and alimony
- Division of property and assets, including business interests

A postnuptial agreement can also address other unique concerns a spouse may have in the event of a divorce.
It is important to ensure that your postnuptial agreement is enforceable. An agreement may be unenforceable if:
- One of the parties to the agreement entered it involuntarily, or through the use of coercion or duress
- The parties failed to fully disclose their financial information
- A party did not know what they were signing
- A party did not have adequate time to consider the agreement and consult an attorney, if they so wished
