Pre & Post-Nuptial Agreements in Collin County
Draft a Marital Agreement in Texas
The Texas Family Code has a provision that makes it possible for marrying couples to enter into a prenuptial agreement. These agreements can be enforced – but only when they meet the legal requirements as outlined in the law.
These agreements are entirely customized, and can address a range of issues, including but not limited to:
- Spousal support in a divorce
- Distribution of property at death
- Protecting separate property
To learn if a prenuptial agreement is right for you, call Cross Family Law, PLLC at (972) 675-7792.
Why Get a Prenup?
A prenuptial agreement can create a solid foundation for a marriage, with both parties participating in the creation of the document. It gives the couple the opportunity to understand each other’s finances and place any expectations out in the open. The document may be important to a person who has children from an earlier marriage and wants to make it clear which assets are for those children upon his or her death.
No one wants to contemplate divorce when getting married, but if the terms are laid out in advance, the entire process is far less stressful and expensive.
A postnuptial agreement can help you avoid a costly divorce. These agreements are established between the two partners to cover all the issues when a marriage ends, including:
- Disposition of property and all marital assets
- Child custody
- Child support
- Modification of an existing prenuptial agreement
A postnuptial agreement can be a critical legal document if you own a business in Collin County. When two spouses own a business jointly, it’s crucial to have an agreement in place should the marriage fail. Such a document can outline how the business will be divided in a divorce, avoiding the costs associated with a legal fight over the business assets.
