Enforceability of Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
Having a prenup or a postnup can be very helpful for couples that have assets they want to protect in the event of a divorce. Newly married or about to be married couples typically don’t want to think about the possibility of their marriage failing, but it is worth being safe and outlining how assets will be divided in the event of a divorce. In the state of Texas, premarital agreements and postmarital agreements will generally be accepted and enforced in the event of a divorce. The Texas property division laws will generally be disregarded and the courts will follow the agreement made between both parties.
What Should Be Considered In A Prenup & Postnup?
The clarity in a prenup or postnup will be important when it comes to the court enforcement of the agreement. Having an attorney that will evaluate all potential assets and that will draft the agreement with the goal of clarity in mind will be very important. Some of the things you will need to consider when developing a prenup and postnup are:
- What you currently own individually.
- What you will accrue during the marriage.
- Spousal maintenance. (Alimony)
- How money will be commingled during the marriage.
- Each person’s retirement savings.
