League City Premarital & Postmarital Agreements Attorney

Prenups vs. Postnuptial

Premarital and Postmarital Agreement

In Texas, a premarital agreement (or prenuptial) and post marital (postnuptial) agreements are legal contracts that allow couples to establish guidelines and arrangements for property division, asset protection, spousal support, and other matters in the event of a divorce or separation. However, there are key differences between the two, and strict rules that must be followed in order to make either or both enforceable. For these reasons, consulting with a League City Premarital Agreements Attorney before the date of marriage is crucial. And, if a married couple plans to create an agreement after the date of marriage to separate and divide property while remaining married, then a League City postmarital agreements attorney should be involved to be certain title to the property is properly handled and that the character of the property is correctly transferred to each individual spouse as intended.

The primary difference is that prenups are written before a marriage and postnups are written during a marriage.

An engagement to be married can be an exciting time, with lots of anticipation, preparation for ceremony, friends, family, a honeymoon and the fantasy/expectation of a lifetime of bliss and love together. Naturally, it’s odd to think of a legal contract that literally presumes its only purpose is to account for a division of property (i.e., protect the money) in the event of a divorce. But there may be other advantages to a prenup than simply a cynical expectation the marriage won’t last.  For example:

  • One or both parties are marrying for the second (or more time);
  • One or both parties have children, and estate planning issues are involved;
  • One or both parties are starting a new business (backed by investors who are interested in protecting their investment money and want provisions in place to account for Texas community property laws).
  • One or both of the parties have substantial debt they would be bringing into the marriage, and it must be kept separate.
  • One or both parties have property they would bring into the marriage they wish to protect and maintain as uniquely separate, including its new income.
