Prenuptial Agreements in Burleson

Preserving Client Assets in Johnson County & Greater Fort Worth

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, a Burleson prenuptial agreement lawyer from our firm can help you plan for your future.

What Does a Prenup Do?

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.

What to Include in a Prenup:

  • Property, including the rights regarding the sale, purchase, or transfer of property 
  • Spousal support or if the couple wishes to forgo alimony
  • Rights to benefits of a life insurance policy
  • The creation of a will or trust
  • Whether joint or separate bank accounts are used
  • How debt will be handled 

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. 

Understanding the Legal Benefits of a Prenuptial Agreement

A prenuptial agreement, often referred to as a prenup, is a legal document that outlines the division of assets and liabilities in the event of a divorce. While it may not be the most romantic topic to discuss before marriage, a prenup can provide important legal protections for both parties.

Some of the key benefits of a prenuptial agreement include:

  • Protection of individual assets brought into the marriage
  • Clarification of financial responsibilities during the marriage
  • Prevention of lengthy and costly legal battles in the event of divorce
  • Peace of mind for both parties regarding financial security

Our experienced legal team at Coontz Cochran can help you understand the legal implications of a prenup and guide you through the process of creating a comprehensive and legally binding agreement that protects your interests.
