Marital Agreements For Houston Couples

Marriage is a joyful event. It is the beginning of a new chapter in life. Sometimes, however, certain considerations either before or after marriage can increase the need for a marital contract.

Prenuptial And Prenuptial Agreements: Do You Need One?

A prenuptial agreement essentially allows a couple to make their own financial considerations before getting married if a divorce should arise, rather than allowing state law to dictate the outcome.

Not all parties need a prenup. However, those who marry with substantial assets or have children from a previous marriage should consider creating one to establish property rights.

A postnuptial agreement is similar to a prenup, but it is entered into after a couple is married. Couples should consider a post-marriage agreement if, for instance, new financial circumstances develop, such as a profitable business venture or substantial inheritance.

Saving Time, Stress And Money

It's understandable that couples don't want to consider such agreements. However, much like a will, a marriage agreement can save needless stress and thousands of dollars down the line in the event of a marriage dissolution—particularly with the help of an experienced attorney.
