Pre-Nups, Alimony and Attorney’s Fees

If your pre-nup waives alimony, it also waives attorney's fees.

In Vakharwala v. Vakharwala, the Georgia Supreme Court reversed the trial court's decision to award attorney's fees to a wife under O.C.G.A § 19-6-2. This is the law that allows a party to be awarded fees when there is a great disparity in income or other resources, which would prevent the party without the resources to adequately defend him or herself. In this case, the trial court awarded the wife $60,000 in attorney's fees.
