One of the first things that you will hear when you announce your engagement is a chorus of people telling you congratulations. What you might not hear is a warning about protecting yourself in case of a divorce. This is because many people think that bringing up the subject of a prenuptial agreement is a bad omen for the marriage or that these documents are only applicable to people who are wealthy.
We want you to know that prenuptial agreements have an important part in all marriages. It doesn’t matter if you have a huge investment portfolio or are just getting starting on building your wealth. In both of these cases, a premarital agreement can help you to protect yourself.
A premarital agreement can outline a number of points. It can cover who is going to get specific assets if the marriage does end. It might set conditions on what is going to happen if a divorce occurs because of infidelity. It can also outline what is going to happen to specific debts. One thing that you can’t cover in these agreements is what will happen to the children. Instead, all child custody matters have to be decided at the time of the divorce.
When you create a prenuptial agreement, it must be a customized document. It must protect you and your ex. We can help you ensure that the agreement you have is suitable and in compliance with Texas laws. This is important since you want the agreement enforceable if you do end up having to end the marriage.
