A prenuptial agreement is a prudent and legitimate way to protect the assets you bring to a marriage. If properly drafted, a prenuptial agreement will significantly reduce the costs and time associated with litigation in the event of a divorce. However, prenuptial agreements are complicated documents and require the expertise of an attorney familiar with the "land mines" to avoid.
A prenuptial agreement characterizes how property will be divided if the marriage ends through divorce or death. Primarily, it identifies and classifies separate assets so that the identified property is not subject to a judge’s division upon divorce or death. Prenuptial agreements provide protection for assets accumulated during marriage that otherwise would be split evenly under Texas law. A prenuptial agreement can protect your home, business, employment benefits, deferred compensation, and real property. No personal assets are off limits, but there is intensive documentation required to protect your assets.
