If you have a significant amount of assets and you are planning to get married, then you need to understand Texas' divorce and property division laws. If you are divorced in the future, your assets will be divided equally between you and your spouse according to Texas equitable distribution laws. This can pose a significant threat to your net worth and to the value of your estate, which is why protecting your assets is more important than you might think. At Coontz Cochran, our Burleson prenuptial agreement attorneys can help you plan for your future.
If you have not yet married, you may greatly benefit from a prenuptial agreement. This contract is designed to protect the assets of one or both parties in the case of a divorce. For example, if you divorce while you have entered into a prenuptial agreement, your assets cannot be distributed and you will retain the assets that are named or categorized in the contract.
If you want additional information regarding this benefit, or if you wish to prepare an agreement, you may greatly benefit from the representation of our Burleson prenuptial agreement attorney at Coontz Cochran.
