Prenuptial Agreements Offer More Than Wealth Protection
Premarital agreements are not exclusive to the rich and famous. There are many reasons to consider a prenuptial agreement. Some people want to protect the inheritance rights of children from a previous marriage. Some people are persuaded by family members to create a premarital agreement to ensure a family business survives divorce or sudden death of one of the business owners. Other people want to ensure that their separate marital property is accurately classified as separate property and is therefore not eligible to claims of interest from a spouse in the event of divorce.
Creating, Enforcing, and Contesting Prenuptial Agreements
Texas family law presumes that all assets acquired or earned during a marriage are marital property and should be divided fairly in the event of divorce. This area becomes confusing when significant assets are brought into the marriage, when there is a family business, or when there are other complex property issues involved. While an experienced divorce lawyer can do everything right to effectively resolve asset division disputes, there are times when an agreement cannot be reached and the trial court sides with the opposition. A carefully drafted prenuptial agreement can ensure your interests are fully protected and can expedite any future potential dissolution proceedings.
Our law firm is available to help clients negotiate and draft effective prenuptial and postnuptial agreements and to facilitate property distribution in accordance with a prenuptial agreement. We also address disputes involving invalid prenuptial agreements, such as agreements that were established through fraud, without full disclosure of assets or debts, or with ambiguous or unclear language.
We are fluent in Spanish and accept all major credit cards.
