Prenuptial & Post-Marital Agreements
At the outset, 0% of marriages plan to divorce. But in the end, 50% of them do. This simple fact clearly illustrates the importance of prenuptial and post-marital agreements, and why you should have an experienced family law attorney help you create yours. Even during the best of times, it’s wise to look after your interests.
Under Texas law, future spouses have a right to enter into a prenuptial agreement. This agreement can have a dramatic effect on a future divorce, property division, and spousal maintenance. Prenuptial agreements can cover a broad range of areas, including:
- The status and ownership of property, whether obtained before or after the marriage
- The right to buy, sell, use or transfer property
- The disposition of property in the event of separation, divorce or death
- The modification or elimination of spousal support
- The making of a will or trust
- The ownership of death benefits or insurance policies
Our attorneys are experienced at crafting and enforcing prenuptial or post-marital agreements that clearly spell out the rights of both parties, and help both parties define and protect their interests.
