Our family lawyers have many years of experience
Under the law, marriage is a contract. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are simply additional provisions allowed by Texas law and designed to protect the people involved. Rather than let the state determine the terms of your marriage, you can use a pre- or post-marital agreement to define your marriage on your own terms. At Nichols Law, our family law attorneys believe that you need to plan for the worst but hope for the best.
The primary event to plan for in a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement is a possible divorce. Divorce is never a pleasant subject, but it is an unfortunate reality of our society and needs to be accounted with certainty. Our top Houston divorce lawyers can help sensitively and carefully craft an agreement that helps ensure that you and any children will be provided for, no matter what happens. If this is not your first marriage, it is all the more important to document arrangements for the care of any children from earlier marriages.
It is also important to protect assets in a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. In the event of a divorce in Houston, you will need your assets that were accumulated before the divorce carefully spelled out in writing. You also might want to decide now what an eventual asset division would be like. Again, it is not easy to broach such subjects, but our Houston family lawyers have years of experience working through such issues sensitively and compassionately.
