Prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements can be very beneficial in a marriage if there are certain assets that you want to be sure are classified as separate property rather than community property in the event that the marriage ends. These agreements clarify and solidify the property rights of each party with regard to assets and debts that each person had prior to marriage, and can also provide that property and income obtained during the marriage will be separate property.
There are some fairly complex laws that govern post-nuptial and prenuptial agreements in Texas. Be sure to consult an experienced attorney before signing anything in order to ensure that your rights are protected. At Christiansen Law Firm, our attorneys have significant experience in Texas family law, including experience drafting premarital and marital property agreements, also called prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements.
Our attorneys help clients of all ages and backgrounds with premarital and marital property agreements; from young couples with relatively few assets to older couples who are remarrying in their later years. Older couples who remarry often find premarital (prenuptial) agreements helpful to ensure that, upon their death, their property goes to their desired beneficiaries.
Another issue that arises in these cases is enforceability. Depending on the case, there may be an argument to have the agreement declared invalid. If the client did not sign the agreement voluntarily, was defrauded or misled, was not provided a fair disclosure of the property, or the agreement is unconscionable, we will litigate the enforceability issue to protect your interests.
