Assistance With Texas Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements
Creating an agreement before or right after your marriage can ensure that both you and your partner understand what is being brought to the table. A carefully created agreement also lays out expectations and responsibilities. Doing this when both parties are levelheaded, helps avoid misunderstandings and false assumptions later. At Huckaby Hicks PLLC, we work with you to ensure that your plans for how you and your spouse will manage both your finances and your property throughout your marriage, are well heard and understood. Your agreement can also discuss what should happen when the marriage does not last.
Misunderstood Tools That Actually Create Trust
Prenuptial agreements (often called “prenups”) can actually work to build trust within a relationship. This is because both parties are being upfront about what they are bringing to the marriage and what they expect from each person. A premarital agreement is signed prior to a couple’s wedding. A postmarital agreement is a similar document signed after the parties wed. This agreement works to protect each spouse in the event of a divorce or death.
These documents typically address:
- Future spousal support
- Ownership of particular property or debts
- Children from previous relationships
- Financial responsibilities during the marriage
- Familial and work-related expectations
- How inheritances will be handled in the event of a divorce
We view premarital and postmarital agreements as a responsible, estate planning document that can ultimately benefit a marriage by removing the uncertainty of what can happen in the future. If you own a business and want to ensure it is protected, a premarital or postmarital agreement can set out clear, legally enforceable terms. We can help.
