Prenuptial and Postnuptial Lawyers Serving Montgomery and Fort Bend County
Divorce cases of high-profile celebrities are constantly in the headlines but it is a mistake to assume that only the rich and famous can benefit from marital property agreements. Couples from all backgrounds should consider whether a prenuptial agreement may benefit them in the period leading up to their wedding day.
Even if they have been married for years, spouses who have certain interests to protect may also want to look at their options for postnuptial agreements, also known as a partition and exchange agreement.
Fortunately, Texas law allows you to take control of your marital property rights which allows you to direct how your property is divided between you and your spouse in the event of divorce or death. While addressing these issues may seem awkward with your fiancé and/or betrothed, in many instances, these crucial conversations can help protect both you and your loved one avoid unnecessary stress in the future.
However, it is important to note that these statutes do require certain language which must be included in order to ensure the prenuptial agreement and/or postnuptial agreement is enforceable. Mistakes in the agreement or the exclusion of certain key language can put your rights at risk and may impact the enforcement of the agreement.
With help from a pre-martial agreement attorney and or a postnuptial agreement attorney, you will be able to navigate the complexities of this area of the law. Reach out to an attorney at The Stout Law Firm, P.L.L.C. today so you can ensure your rights are properly protected.
