Prenuptial and Postnuptial Lawyers Serving Galveston County

Many people believe only celebrities can truly benefit from martial property agreements. Celebrity divorces are constantly in news headlines and this can give many the wrong perspective about divorce. All couples in Texas should consider if a prenuptial agreement can benefit them. These types of 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 help you protect select interests after marriage. These types of agreements are also known as a partition and exchange agreement.

Fortunately, Texas citizens are able to take control of their martial property rights through current Texas laws. This helps you take care of how you and your spouse divide your property in the event of death or divorce. Addressing these issues may seem like an awkward task to go over with your fiancé and/or betrothed. Having this conversation can eliminate a large amount of unnecessary stress down the road.

If considering these agreements, it is very important to note that these statutes require extremely specific language to be included into the document. If mistake are made and certain language is left out when writing these documents, your rights may be at risk and the agreement may not be enforceable at all.
