Houston Prenup Lawyer
Nearly half of all marriages in the United States end in divorce. It is perfectly acceptable for you to believe that your future marriage will defy the odds. However, you should be prepared in case of dissolution — executing a prenuptial agreement with your significant other is nothing to be embarrassed about! In fact, a prenuptial agreement is merely a way for you and your intended spouse to set expectations and eliminate future potential conflicts.
Should I Have a Prenuptial Agreement?
Many people might assume that a prenup agreement is only for couples who have high value assets going into a marriage. Other people assume that having a prenup is a form of planning for failure. However, neither of these situations are the end all be all of a prenuptial agreement.
A properly done prenuptial agreement can benefit a vast majority of relationships prior to marriage. It forces couples to discuss heavy topics and get them hashed out before problems arise later on after the marriage has already taken place. Tackling these issues before they become problematic can help ensure a marriage starts off on the right foot and that both parties are on the same page.
If one of the following situations applies to you then a prenuptial agreement might be the right choice to take.
- Second or third marriages, especially if there are children from previous marriages
- Marriages in which someone holds significant debts or assets
- Marriages in which the spouses are elderly or have serious health concerns
- Marriages in which either or both of the spouses is engaged in a financially risky profession
- Marriages in which someone has accumulated significant debts or assets
- Marriages in which either or both of the spouses becomes or plans to become engaged in a financially risky profession
This is not an all encompassing lists. If you have any questions about whether obtaining a prenup is the right decision for you and your relationship, reach out to one of our Houston Prenup Lawyers today.
What Areas Does a Prenuptial Agreement Cover?
A prenuptial agreement allows you to decide how marital property will be characterized during marriage and how it will be divided upon divorce. Prenuptial agreements generally cover issues such as:
- Spousal Support
- Spousal Maintenance (Alimony)
- Accumulation of Community Property during Marriage
- Partition of Real Property
