Pre and Post Nuptial Agreements
Getting married is such a joyous event in people’s lives, no one wants to think about that marriage ending in divorce. The fact is that many engaged or married individuals have good reasons to enter into a prenuptial or post-nuptial agreement. Post-nuptial and prenuptial agreements are particularly helpful if you have acquired significant assets, if this is a second or third marriage, or if you have multiple children from a previous relationship.
A prenuptial agreement will streamline the division of property in the event that your marriage ends, by designating property that would otherwise be community property as separate property, or by outlining the division of community property.
A post-nuptial agreement, or partition and exchange agreement, is entered into after you have been married, either as the result of some changed circumstance or in anticipation of divorce.
Our job is to create documents that reflect the agreements of the parties regarding what property belongs to whom, and how community property is to be distributed in the event the marriage does not last. A pre- or post-nuptial agreement assures you have control over the situation, preserving the wealth you have accumulated, instead of seeing it depleted by attorneys’ fees in drawn out litigation over the division of marital property. We can even include language in the agreements that limits or eliminates spousal support and attorneys’ fees during divorce proceedings.
Because Texas law has strict requirements for such agreements, it is critical for both parties to retain the services of one of the best family lawyers in San Antonio with experience drafting, negotiating and enforcing prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements.
We work hard to make sure your rights and interests are protected no matter what the future holds.
