Plano Prenuptial Agreement Lawyer

Collin County Prenup Lawyer

Family Law Attorney Helping Create Prenups and Postnups in Collin County, Texas

For couples who are preparing to tie the knot or who are happily married, the prospect of divorce may not be a pleasant thing to consider. However, nearly half of all marriages end in divorce, so it can be a good idea to think about this possibility and make plans for the potential end of a marriage. One of the best ways that a couple can address this issue is by creating a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. By making decisions about how certain issues will be handled if they choose to dissolve their marriage, spouses can protect their rights and financial interests, and they can minimize uncertainty about the future.

Whether you believe that you need to put protections in place before getting married or are looking to create an agreement with your spouse that addresses issues related to the possible end of your marriage, the Easley Law Group can advise you of your options and help you negotiate an agreement that will meet your needs. With our extensive experience representing clients in divorce and family law cases, we understand the legal issues that affect married spouses. We can help you negotiate the terms of a prenup or postnup and make sure your agreement is created and executed correctly.

Issues Addressed in Prenups and Postnups

Couples who are planning to get married can create a prenuptial agreement, or prenup, and this agreement will become valid once they are legally wed. Spouses who are already married can create a postnuptial agreement, or postnup. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are similar to contracts, and the spouses will be legally obligated to follow the terms of an agreement in the applicable situations.

Typically, a prenup or postnup will include decisions about how certain matters will be handled if the couple's marriage ends, including through divorce, legal separation, or the death of a spouse. An agreement may detail how different types of marital property will be divided during a divorce, or it may state that certain assets are separate property that will be solely owned by one spouse. A couple can also make decisions about spousal support (alimony), such as waiving the right to receive spousal support in certain situations or specifying an amount and duration of support that will be paid following divorce. An agreement can also detail each party's rights and responsibilities toward different types of property during their marriage.

A prenuptial agreement may be beneficial if either party owns significant assets or has significant debts prior to getting married. In these cases, a prenup can protect a person's financial interests, ensuring that they will be able to continue to own certain assets while minimizing their financial burdens. For spouses who are already married, a postnuptial agreement can address issues such as ownership of a family business, how matters will be handled if the marriage ends due to infidelity, or whether certain assets will be set aside and allocated to the parties' children or any children from previous relationships.
