According to Texas law, a prenuptial agreement is an agreement between prospective spouses made in contemplation of marriage and to be effective upon marriage. This means that two people make a contract that will be enforced in the event of a divorce or death. The right of a child to support may not be adversely effected by a prenuptial agreement.
The content of a prenuptial agreement may include how property will be divided:
- on separation before the divorce is final,
- after the divorce itself,
- upon death,
- if one of the parties remarries after the divorce,
- if one of the spouses becomes disabled after the divorce or during the marriage, and
- what happens if a child is produced or not produced as a result of the marriage and much more.
Prenuptial agreements have many sensitive legal issues involved that online forms simply have no capacity to discover, analyze and provide. It is important that a skilled attorney be employed to create a prenup that meets your needs and will hold up in a Texas court.
