Denton County Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer
Marital agreements, such as prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, are contracts that couples can enter into before or during a marriage. These agreements preemptively outline certain terms of marriage. People most commonly think of them in relation to the separation of assets in the event of a divorce; however, they can also provide non-divorce-related financial and estate management benefits for couples with complex estates.
The Law Office of Lindsey J. Wilson can help you and your partner evaluate your respective and joint financial situations to create a marital agreement that protects your assets, business interests, and financial future. We will provide you with guidance throughout the process and work with you to ensure that both parties are fairly represented.
Premarital and Postnuptial Agreements
Prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements work in similar ways, except one is entered into before marriage (prenuptial agreements) and one is written after the marriage starts (postnuptial agreements). Both serve the primary purpose of providing clarity on how certain assets will be handled over the course of the marriage and afterward. These can protect both parties from one another’s debts, prevent the intermingling of assets, secure business/financial interests, and even ensure a fair spousal support amount, if needed.
Despite the practicality of these marital contracts, there is still a stigma attached to them. Many have been led to believe that prenups and postnups—as they’re sometimes called—indicate that a couple believes their marriage will end in divorce. In our experience, this is far from the truth. Rather, these contracts indicate that couples are financially responsible and have given a lot of thought to how to best protect themselves and their families.
Marital agreements must meet certain requirements to hold up in court. For one, they must be in writing and signed voluntarily by both parties. Any agreements signed under duress or coercion will be rendered invalid. Furthermore, the agreement must be fair at the time it was signed and there must be transparency regarding assets—both parties must disclose their assets and certain details about them. It is also a tremendous help to have a prenuptial agreement lawyer present when signing the contract.
