Prenuptials and Marriage Attorney
For those who are in the process of preparing to get married, there are many issues that demand the attention of both parties. It is extremely important to not lose sight of your financial and property interests in the course of getting married. No one ever intends on having a divorce prior to marriage, but protecting your interests is an important matter in marriage. Don’t make the mistake of assuming you will never have to deal with division of property or finances. We will carefully draft such an agreement for clients.
It is beneficial for both involved to examine and have an attorney draft prenuptials. Prenuptial agreements are not a sign that you are going to get a divorce. Rather, prenuptials are a safeguard against future unnecessary loss. If you have independent wealth, it is important that you do not lay it open to claim, or the potential of forfeiting it in the future. Have a Texas family law attorney help you draft a binding nuptial agreement that comprehensively covers the areas of your concern.
There is no longer a stigma attached to filing prenuptials as there may have been 30 years ago. Premarital agreements can greatly benefit anyone who is planning on a second marriage and may have children from their first. In such a case, the parent involved would obviously want to retain the assets that are intended to go their children. Prenuptials can be used to keep assets that you have acquired before the marriage out of scrutiny; if ever the marriage would cease.
Prenuptials can be drafted for those who choose to maintain separate finances completely within the marriage; this would protect each from the other becoming involved in their financial matters. If you are deciding whether or not to have a prenuptial agreement drafted, keep in mind that the earlier you can create the prenuptial the better. Planning a wedding can be stressful and time consuming and it may be difficult to give your full attention to prenuptials at a time somewhat close to the wedding. Clausell Law Firm, PLLC can help.
