Prenuptial Agreement Paperwork in League City
A Prenuptial agreement is a common legal process taken to establish each party’s financial status and rights in the event of a divorce. Usually a stigma to discuss with your significant other, it can be very beneficial for protecting assets. Nobody wants to discuss a divorce before a marriage, but things can happen. It is wise to sign a premarital agreement to secure things like family businesses and particularly wealthy spouse’s assets.
If you have been married before or are bringing significant properties into a marriage, we can help provide peace of mind by preparing and executing a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement that protects your children and your assets.
About Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
Prenuptial agreements are contracts written up prior to a marriage taking place. These documents attempt to clarify factors such as property rights, inheritance issues, debt assignment, and more. They are highly tailored to the unique circumstances of the couple. Sometimes referred to as a “prenup” these legal papers seek to avoid conflicts down the line by helping those who are entering a relationship to consider a variety of different factors before they become a couple in the eyes of the law.
Postnuptial agreements are similar to prenuptial agreements in that the documents involved seek to clarify each person’s rights and entitlements through drawing up a legal document for the court to follow. The only difference is that this paperwork is started and completed after the couple is married
Examples of subjects typically addressed in these types of agreements:
- Property rights
- Inheritance issues
- Debt division
- Death benefits
- Provisions in case of a divorce
