Southlake Postnuptial Agreements Attorney

Many engaged spouses do not enter into a prenuptial agreement – perhaps they do not think they need one, or they might even believe that such agreements encourage divorce. However, as time – and their marriage – progresses, spouses might realize they want to have additional legal protections of their property and finances should a divorce happen. This might be the right time to sign a postnuptial agreement.

The law firm of Mims Ballew Hollingsworth | Family Law assists clients with marital property agreements, including postnuptial agreements. We work closely with every individual client to assess their objectives and ensure any agreements they sign will effectively achieve the level of protection they need and want.

If you’re wondering whether taking this step is right for you, reach out to our Southlake postnuptial agreements lawyer today.

What is a Postnuptial Agreement?

Postnuptial agreements (also known as partition and exchange agreements or post-marital agreements) are entered into after your marriage and can be used to address changes that have arisen. Common scenarios include the decision for one spouse to stop working and care for children, when a spouse is unfaithful and incentives are needed to work on the marriage, or when inheritance is received and needs to be protected.

Postnuptial agreements allow spouses to make binding changes regarding their finances after they have wed. If divorce is a possibility, but both spouses want to work on their marriage, a post-marital agreement can help take away the uncertainty of what will happen if the marriage cannot be saved.

When is a Postnuptial Agreement Right for You?

You should consider an agreement if you have concerns about what might happen to your finances and property if your marriage ends in a divorce. You do not need to be having marital problems to draft an agreement – some spouses sign one and stay married the rest of their lives. This agreement simply takes some stress off your shoulders regarding what post-divorce life might look like.

Some reasons you might consider a postnuptial agreement include:

  • Your or your spouse decided to stop working to tend to the household – an agreement can ensure you will receive spousal maintenance until you can support yourself after a divorce.
  • You or your spouse have or will have an inheritance or family heirlooms that you want to keep separate from the community estate.
  • One of you starts a business that you want to remain separate property in a divorce.
  • You want to ensure that children from a prior marriage maintain their inheritance rights to your property and assets.
  • You suspect a divorce might be coming in the future, and you want to prevent your spouse from selling or concealing assets in the meantime.

If you decide to move forward, we will ensure that you have a fair and enforceable agreement that achieves your goals and protects your interests.
