Prenuptial, Postnuptial and Other Marital Agreements
The law in Georgia can be very traditional, assuming that a marriage will last forever. All assets acquired during a marriage, as well as retirement accounts and some other assets, are considered joint property. If you bring property or assets to a marriage that you would like to keep separate, you may want to speak to an attorney about a prenuptial agreement. Postnuptial agreements are also gaining in popularity as financial tools for couples who are already married.
In Georgia, the state's domestic violence law applies not only to married couples, but also to domestic partners, parents and children, and stepparents and children.
