Texas Prenup Lawyer

Burnet Family Law Attorney for Prenuptial Agreements

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 reputation 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. The Llano County 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.

Prenuptial Agreement Basics

Prenuptial agreements can be used to address a wide range of concerns, many of which pertain to money and property. It is important to realize, however, that the discussions required for setting up a strong premarital agreement can lead to a sense of openness and transparency between the partners that can last for many years into the marriage. Some of the issues that a premarital agreement can cover include:

  • 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
  • The right of each spouse to use, sell, transfer, manage, or dispose of property
  • Other contractual legal matters
