Prenuptial and Postnuptial Lawyers Serving Galveston County

A common misconception many have is that only celebrities benefit from martial property agreements. All couples in Texas should consider whether a prenuptial agreement could be beneficial to them. Prenuptial agreements can be made all the way up to your wedding day.

Even if a couple has already “tied the knot”, spouses are still able to make postnuptial agreements. These agreements, also known as a partition and exchange agreement, help you to protect certain interests after marriage.

Fortunately, Texas law provides avenues to allow some control over the division of property. These avenues allow you to decide how you and your spouse will divide your community property in the event of death or divorce. Addressing these issues may seem like an awkward task to go over with your partner, but having this conversation can eliminate a large amount of unnecessary stress down the road.

When considering these agreements, it is very important to understand the specificity of the language required. If mistake is made and certain language is left out when drafting these documents, your rights may be at risk and the agreement may not be enforceable at all.
