Frequently Asked Questions
iWhat is a Premarital Agreement?
A premarital agreement is an agreement between two people made in contemplation of marriage and to be effective on the date of marriage. Premarital agreements regarding property are made possible by the state constitution, by Texas statutes, and by case law. In addition, public policy dictates that premarital agreements should be enforced, and the law favors these agreements. To stand up in court, a premarital agreement must meet certain standards. While a premarital agreement gives the parties a great deal of latitude to vary the operation of Texas family law with respect to property or alimony issues, it cannot affect the child support obligations that would otherwise apply.
iHow can a Properly Designed Premarital Agreement Help Me?
A properly designed premarital (aka prenuptial) or post-marital agreement can protect specific property interests, specify arrangements for spousal support, and avoid confusion about assets during a potential divorce. Premarital agreements (prenups) are most often used in situations when one or both people about to marry wish to keep the parties’ separate estates distinct from the community estate. Commonly, parties who have been through divorce have learned just how much a premarital agreement could have saved them from problems in a previous divorce.
