Fort Worth And Burleson Prenuptial Agreement Attorneys

Texas couples are increasingly seeing the value of premarital agreements, whether they expect to divorce one day or not. Prenuptial agreements accomplish many good things:

  • They establish expectations for the marriage, thus avoiding serious misunderstandings.
  • If one party doesn't plan to work during the marriage, the other party finds out now.
  • They protect inheritance rights of children from other marriages.
  • They allow you to separate assets acquired before the marriage, from marital assets — including businesses, inheritances and investments.
  • Spouses understand their financial rights and responsibilities.

Even if you don't divorce, isn't it worthwhile to state in advance what the rules of the marriage will be?

There is one problem with premarital agreements, however. Even though they are legally binding contracts, they are not always drafted with care. Family attorneys with little litigation experience compose agreements that are as vague and as generic as marriage vows. If couples decide to split up later, these casually composed agreements don't stand up to scrutiny in the courts.

That's why you should turn to an experienced Fort Worth family law firm like Lovelace Killen P.L.L.C., a team of litigators who know what issues come up in divorce, and how to word prenuptial agreements so that they withstand even intense scrutiny.
