Prenuptial/Post-Nuptial Agreements

Experienced Pearland Family Lawyer

Whether you have been married for several years or are currently planning your wedding, it is never too late or too early to create legal agreements. Pre and post-nuptial agreements can be great tools to help both you and your spouse distinguish assets and come to an understanding with certain aspects of your marriage. You may wish to lay the groundwork for a potential divorce, such as how child custody or spousal support will be handled, or rather focus on how marital and non-marital property will be separated.

Regardless of your situation, pre and post-nuptial agreements can effectively help you and your spouse avoid conflict or tension over certain issues within your marriage. By planning ahead, you can have peace of mind about the direction of your marriage at all times.

What are the benefits of having a pre/post-nuptial agreement?

As a Pearland family law attorney, I have seen many marriages go through ups and downs. Even if you just go through a temporary separation, having a road map for what that will look like can protect both you and your spouse from unnecessary legal complications and arguments.

A prenuptial agreement offers the following benefits:

  • Gives both couples a sense of security
  • Protects a business from being affected by divorce
  • Provides protections for children from a prior marriage or relationship
  • Allows significant or personal property to be handled as wished
  • Creates a roadmap for a blended family in the event of a death

It is important to understand that the more assets you bring into a marriage, the more crucial it is for you to ensure these assets do not become a source of conflict. Similarly, a couple may choose to take these steps of protection after marriage by utilizing a post-nuptial agreement. In this type of agreement, a couple can keep what is normally seen as marital property separate, so that each spouse takes away what they put in if divorce was to occur.

If you are considering creating a pre or post-nuptial agreement, contact me, Dennis M. Slate for counsel.
