Preparation of Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
Advice for Sensitive Legal Matters
It may not be pleasant to think about the possibility of a divorce when you are planning your wedding, divorce is unfortunately a real possibility. A prenuptial agreement can provide a safety net and a level of insurance that your assets are protected in the event that your marriage ends. Postnuptial or prenuptial agreements are both proactive and pragmatic. At Mark Rush Williamson, PC in Dallas, Texas, we have the sensitivity, compassion, and knowledge to help couples prepare agreements that protect them in case their marriage ends.
Our attorneys have experience preparing postnuptial and prenuptial agreements. We make sure the parties disclose individual assets and finances, and we document these assets and determine who will get what if the marriage ends. An agreement that is signed prior to the marriage gives you complete control if you and your spouse should divorce. Texas law regarding division of marital assets, properties, and debts is disregarded and judges will generally follow a prenuptial agreement when dividing assets.
Clients come to our firm to get a postnuptial and prenuptial agreement for a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with the prospect of divorce. They are used to financially provide for the surviving spouse while protecting inheritances of children from a previous marriage should they die or become incapacitated.
Promises made verbally will not hold weight in a divorce proceeding or following the death of a spouse. A postnuptial and prenuptial agreement can provide peace of mind that you and your assets are protected.
Accessibility and Open Communication
