If you have a significant amount of assets and you are facing marriage in the future, then you need to understand Texas' divorce and property division laws. If you are divorced in the future, then it is important to understand that your assets will be divided equally between yourself and your spouse according to Texas equitable distribution laws. This can pose a significant detriment to your net worth and to the value of your estate. It is important to understand your options and what you can do to protect your assets.
If you have not yet been married, then you may greatly benefit from a prenuptial agreement. This is a contract that is entered into by both parties before the marriage takes place, and it is designed to protect the assets of one party in the case of a divorce. For example, if you face divorce while you have entered into a prenuptial agreement, then 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, then you may greatly benefit from the representation of a Johnson County divorce attorney from our firm.
