Pre-Marital & Post-Marital Agreements
Couples now wait longer before they marry and second marriages by widows and widowers are becoming more frequent. As a result, it has become commonplace for a person to enter into a marriage after having accumulated valuable separate-properties.
The task of documenting and tracing title to separate properties in Texas is vital to preservation of the separate property character of assets and thus is vital to a spouse’s future right to direct subsequent distributions of those assets.
We can prepare pre-marital and post-marital agreements that help a spouse thoughtfully consider and clarify her intentions as to the title and ownership of assets. By clarifying, up-front, a spouse’s expectations as to the character of assets, a couple can minimize the potential for subsequent misunderstandings and look forward to what is truly important — the consecration of their marriage.
