Pre & Postnuptial Agreements

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 pre-marital 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

The Texas Family Code also gives spouses a right to reach a post-marital agreement that, effectively, converts what may be considered community property, and makes it the property of one spouse. Spouses may decide that such an agreement is appropriate to cover events such as:

  • Ownership of businesses formed during the marriages
  • Mutual agreement to separate income, bank accounts or retirement funds
  • Limiting the debt or liability exposure of one spouse or the other
  • Future income derived from property, investments or inherited assets
