A prenuptial agreement or postnuptial agreement can delineate each spouse's rights and obligations in the event of divorce. While prenuptial agreements are common among couples with significant assets and individuals with prior divorces, a prenuptial agreement can be beneficial in many situations, such as:
- Individuals with business assets or a professional practice
- Individuals with a family-owned business
- Individuals with complex assets such as trust funds
- Individuals with high income
- Individuals with high disparity in income
- Individuals with significant debt obligations
- Individuals with children from prior marriages
Under Texas community property laws, anything owned prior to marriage is considered the separate property of each spouse. Separate property that is commingled with marital assets, as well as the appreciation in value of separate assets, can become complex issues in the event of divorce. However, a prenuptial agreement can address and resolve many of these issues upfront — defining issues of property rights and distribution, debt allocation, spousal support, and other matters.Put Our Experience to Work for You
