Premarital Agreements

Protecting Your Premarital Assets & Interests with a Burnet Family Lawyer

Premarital agreements, also known as prenuptial agreements, are legal contracts that define financial rights and obligations before a marriage occurs. By clearly defining these terms, both parties will understand how assets, debts, and other financial issues will be handled in the future, should divorce or death occur. Unfortunately, premarital agreements often get a bad rap in our society, causing many individuals to avoid this often-helpful legal tool.

The fact of the matter is that, by having this document in place before marriage, you are actually able to improve happiness during the marriage and avoid disputes in the future. Our Burnet family law attorney at the Law Office of Russ Alan Baker, PLLC can assist you in the creation of a premarital agreement, and ensure that a detailed and legally sound document aimed at protecting your premarital assets and interests is in place.

A premarital agreement can cover a host of issues, including:

  • How property will be divided following divorce or death
  • Responsibility for premarital debts
  • Defining ownership of the home
  • Estate planning
  • Making the distinction between community and separate property
  • How alimony will be paid
  • How child support will be paid
  • The right of each spouse to use, sell, transfer, manage, or dispose of property
  • Other contractual legal matters
