Marital Agreements

Settle Your Marriage Agreement with a Skilled Lewisville Divorce Attorney

In Texas, you can spare yourself the effort of going to court in a divorce by creating a prenuptial or post-nuptial agreement. These marital agreements preemptively establish the terms of a divorce so that you can more quickly and peacefully end a marriage should that day ever come.

Many couples are resistant to creating this agreement, and may even consider it “planning for failure,” but in actuality, a marital agreement helps to put everything on the table during your marriage. Defining how things would be separated in the event your marriage ends can create a feeling of cooperation between couples, as you work together amicably to reasonably discuss how you would look out for each other. The knowledgeable Lewisville divorce lawyer of Helene Parker & Associates, LLC can help you create a pre or postnuptial agreement that meets all of the criteria laid out in Texas Law.

What Are Prenuptial and Post-Nuptial Agreements?

The prenuptial agreement is an arrangement made before you get married, whereas a post-nuptial agreement is one you make during your marriage. If you decide to create a prenuptial agreement, chances are you will need to create a post-nuptial agreement in a few years to address life changes like finances, children, and shared assets.

With a marital agreement, you can establish:

  • Which assets and property will remain separate
  • How debts will be distributed
  • Spousal support
  • How future gifts and income will be distributed
  • The creation of a will or trust to carry out the agreement

There are many contingencies you can plan for in a marital agreement, but there are some limitations. For example, you cannot use these agreements to regulate lifestyle choices during the marriage, i.e. division of chores.

Create Your Marital Agreement with a Knowledgeable Lawyer

A marital agreement can spare you a lot of stress later on, but only if it is legally recognized the Texas court system. If your agreement is not created according to all applicable laws and statutes, it will be rendered invalid. This is why it is advised that you create these agreements with an attorney. At Helene Parker & Associates, LLC, our Lewisville divorce attorney can help you create an airtight agreement that fully meets all Texas law requirements. As your family lawyer, Ms. Parker will also be available to assist you in updating your agreement every few years to make sure it addresses all of the changes in your life and marriage.
