Understanding Premarital And Post-Marital Agreements In Texas
Premarital and post-marital agreements are becoming increasingly common among engaged and married couples in Texas. These agreements can offer both parties protection and help clarify expectations in the event of a divorce. At the Law Office of David A. Kazen, we have extensive experience drafting and negotiating premarital and post-marital agreements for our clients.
What Is A Premarital Agreement?
A premarital agreement, also known as a prenuptial agreement or “prenup,” is a contract between two people who plan to get married. It outlines each spouse’s financial rights and obligations in the event of a divorce or death. Premarital agreements can address property division, spousal support and other issues that may arise during a divorce.
What Is A Post-Marital Agreement?
A post-marital agreement, also known as a postnuptial agreement or “postnup,” is similar to a premarital agreement but is entered into after marriage. A post-marital agreement can be used to address issues not addressed in the premarital agreement or to modify an existing one.
Why Consider A Premarital or Post-Marital Agreement?
There are many reasons why a couple may choose to enter into a premarital or post-marital agreement. For example, if one spouse has significant assets or expects to receive a substantial inheritance, a premarital agreement can help to protect those assets in the event of a divorce. A post-marital agreement can address changes in the couple’s financial situation or clarify expectations regarding property division and spousal support.
