Premarital property agreements in family law cases

Premarital property agreements in family law cases are becoming more commmon in Texas.  People are marrying later in life than in the past, after they have acquired assets and have net worth they may want to protect.  Texas law recognizes the validity of premarital and postmarital property agreements in divorce cases. The validity depends on whether or not the agreements follow the statutory requirements for either a premarital or postmarital agreement.  The requirements are not the same.

If a person has substantial assets, perhaps either a premarital or postmarital agreement would be the answer.  Speak to an experienced family law attorney to discuss if either would be appropriate for you.  If, on the other hand, you have little property, perhaps such an agreement would not be appropriate.  Either way, speak to an experienced family law attorney to help you decide what you want to do.

I’ve worked with many attorneys throughout the United States on many litigation matters and the biggest deficiencies are lack of industry knowledge and poor communication/follow up.." - D.M.
