Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements


Whether you are getting married for the first time or the fourth, it is extremely important to protect any individual assets or property that you are bringing into the marriage. Though many individuals view marriage contracts as an initial condemnation of the marriage, or worry that it will cause a divorce, we at the law office of Ronald E. Dobelstein, P.C., in Alpharetta view prenuptial and postnuptial agreements as a safe way to protect our clients from any unforeseen events and set out the respective rights and responsibilities for the marriage. Many clients say that they will not marry after a divorce. We advise that when you do get remarried seriously consider a prenuptial agreement to protect both parties.

With over 25 years of experience handling a wide variety of family law issues, attorney Ronald E. Dobelstein will determine the best way to protect your interests.


Ron Dobelstein will prepare a prenuptial agreement in order to fully protect your personal assets and property when entering into a marriage It is important to retain the services of an experienced attorney who can help you draft the necessary legal documents. He will discuss with you, your prenuptial agreement options and how this may benefit you in the long run. Prenuptial Agreements must conform to certain standards and it is necessary to have a lawyer who knows how to satisfy these requirements.


A postnuptial agreement is essentially the same as a prenuptial agreement except for the fact that it is drawn up after the actual marriage takes place. Many couples later discover that it is in their best interests to enter into postnuptial agreements. These documents are drafted the same way as prenuptial agreements and are structured to protect your individual assets. Sometimes postnuptial agreements are a process whereby a contested divorce or potential divorce can be avoided by entry into a postnuptial agreement.

Please note that marital agreements can also protect children from previous marriages. For example, if you wish to ensure that property and assets are going to your children instead of your spouse's children, a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can be structured to serve that exact purpose. However, a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement including any language regarding custody or support of children will be subject to court review. Georgia already has a long-established legal framework outlining the standards of child custody and support.

Mr. Dobelstein represented me in court for a traffic violation. He was on time, honest and very professional. He negotiated a great deal with the Judge for me. I was able to get away with just a small fine. No points, will not go on my driving history and no information will be sent to the insurance. I couldn't have gotten a better deal. And also, I was able to get out in just 20 minutes with more than 50 people waiting in court that day. Thank you, Mr. Dobelstein. I would definitely recommend you. Raj
