What Is a Prenuptial Agreement?
A prenuptial agreement is a legal document that details what would happen in the event of a divorce or legal separation between two people. In Texas, a prenuptial agreement can be created before or during the marriage.
Prenuptial agreements are particularly important in second marriages or when the parties have significant assets. Texas requires that a prenuptial agreement be in writing and signed by both parties in order to be valid.
Why Should I Get a Prenuptial Agreement?
There are many reasons why you may want to get a prenuptial agreement:
- Protect the property you've acquired over the years
- Plan for your future
- Plan for your spouse if you have children from a previous marriage
- Protect your spouse's assets
- Plan for your spouse's future
- Avoid the burden of legal expenses during divorce
It is important to note that Texas is a community property state, which means that all assets and debts acquired during the marriage are considered joint property. However, a prenuptial agreement can outline how you would like your property to be divided in the event of a divorce.
How Do Prenuptial Agreements Work in Texas?
Prenuptial agreements are legal documents that are used in the event of a divorce or legal separation. In Texas, a prenuptial agreement must be in writing and both parties must sign it in order for it to be valid. Prenuptial agreements must also include the following information:
- both parties' full name, date of birth, and address
- a statement that the document is a prenuptial agreement
- a statement that the document is made before marriage
- the date the document was made
- the full name and address of the person who is preparing the document
