Prenuptial agreements have become an increasingly common aspect of marriage. They allow people to protect assets that they bring into the marriage and those they acquire on their own throughout the marriage. They also help protect your assets that are earmarked for children from a previous relationship. All of this is particularly important in a community property state like Texas.
However, for a prenup to be valid and enforceable, it has to be drafted and handled correctly. Both parties must fully understand the terms of the agreement and have time to consider them carefully with their own attorney.
The attorneys at Weinman & Associates have over two decades of experience with prenuptial agreements. Whether we are the ones drafting the agreement that you will in turn present to your fiance and his/her legal representative to review or you ask us to review a prenup drafted by your fiance’s attorney, we are diligent in ensuring that it is fair and valid.
There are a number of reasons why a prenup can be ruled invalid. Both parties must have sufficient time to review the agreement and fully understand what they are signing. Both parties must willingly agree to it. Further, both must fully and truthfully disclose information pertinent to the agreement. If these things aren’t done, a prenup can be basically worthless in court.
There are other requirements that must be met in a Texas prenup. That’s why it’s essential to have attorneys well-versed in the laws of our state behind you when you get a prenup. We will work to ensure that your interests are protected and that, should you have to use it in a divorce, it will hold up.
