Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements
In essence, marriage is a contract with a default set of terms that are established by state law. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements give couples who are planning for marriage the ability to make arrangements that clarify or alter the default terms that marriage normally carries.
At Golda R. Jacob & Associates P.C., a Houston, Texas, family law firm, we work closely with clients to identify their goals and craft pre- and post-marital agreements that protect their assets and the financial stability of their family if a marriage should end. Our attorneys are also skilled litigators who advocate on behalf of clients in court when conflicts arise over the validity or interpretation of these agreements.
Prenuptial agreements are not necessary for everyone, but can be beneficial for many couples in a variety of different situations, including those:
- Entering a marriage with significant personal property who want to ensure their assets are clearly documented and protected
- Who own a business or own property and assets which will generate a profit in the future
- With children from another relationship
- Who are both older and financially established
Our seasoned family law lawyers understand that every couple has different needs and unique concerns. That is why we give each client personal, attentive service. We take the time answer questions and talk through all possible options, so that clients can feel confident in their decisions as they enter marriage.
