Prenuptial Agreements Archives

A prenuptial agreement may not be upheld if a friend weds couple

As the world embraces the advances that technology has fostered, many Texas couples are opting to have their marriage vows performed by a friend. It is now easier than ever for almost anyone to be ordained online, and more millennials who do not identify with a particular religion are opting for this now-popular option. Many fail to realize the potential consequences of such a choice and may find that their marriage and prenuptial agreement may not be valid.

Divorce, remarriage and adult children

As seniors in Texas and across the country are learning, people outliving one or more spouses is becoming more probable, leaving many seniors with the opportunity to invest in new relationships later in life. Even a divorce later in life can leave the space to find another soul mate. But finding another partner so late in life has drawbacks, and the adult children from previous relationships may see the new spouse as a means to diminish their inheritance.

Understanding how a prenuptial agreement works with assets

Finding what seems like one's soulmate is often an exceptional event on one's life. Getting married is often soon to follow, and thinking about a possible future divorce is usually far from one's mind. Planning for the unexpected and unfortunate can often create a sense of peace and closeness, especially when Texas couples agree on the steps to be taken and plan together accordingly. Seeking a prenuptial agreement can help couples to understand how their financial future would look like should the unthinkable happen.

What happens to the family pet during a divorce?

Relationships dissolve for many reasons. When a couple reaches the decision to seek a divorce, understanding how property amassed during the marriage will be distributed can often throw a calm and amicable separation into an emotionally heated debate about who gets what. This can include the family pet that many Texas residents consider a member of the family. With the recent surge in pet custody issues, many soon-to-be divorced couples want to know what will happen to the beloved family pet.

Can a prenuptial agreement dictate who gets the engagement ring?

Divorce is something that most Texas couples don't consider when they are happily engaged and planning a wedding. As many know, divorce can sometimes be the unfortunate result of a relationship that no longer is fulfilling for one or both spouses. Should a prenuptial agreement be in place, the parties can go their separate ways and have a sense of direction once a marriage has ended.

Are frozen embryos considered property during a Texas divorce?

Many Texas couples face the heartbreaking reality of infertility. But advances in reproductive technology, invitro fertilization and other fertility alternatives have allowed many couples to become parents using artificial means. The question can arise as to what to do with embryos should the couple divorce or separate.

Considering small stuff for property division during a divorce

No Texas couple is safe from a potential divorce, regardless of how the marriage starts or where the couple lives. The life that is built by two people becomes entangled in every aspect and going through the process of property division can be overwhelming. The house, cars, furniture, jewelry and other items are obvious for cataloging and dividing, but what about some of the not so obvious items, like airline miles and hotel points?

Wanting a prenuptial agreement doesn't make one the bad guy

The word "prenup" used to have many negative associations. The thought of gold diggers and those who would leave an unsuspecting partner financially devastated often spring to mind. Recently, having a prenuptial agreement or even bringing up the idea is no longer so taboo. Many young Texas couples see the agreement as a financial must if they are planning on getting married. But how does one approach the subject without sounding like a selfish, money-grubbing tightwad?

Prenuptial agreement leaves one ex with $12 million

Unfortunately, divorce is a reality for many Americans. For whatever reason, the relationship between spouses breaks down and the only remaining option is to leave the union and move on with one's life. Many wealthy people have in place a prenuptial agreement to help ensure that, should the tie that binds be severed, they will remain in the same financial state as before the vows were spoken. These agreements are just as valuable and advisable for those who have not attained celebrity status or accumulated millions in assets. With a prenuptial agreement in place, Texas courts will have less say over the division of assets in the event of divorce or death.  

Texas couples see the positives of getting a prenuptial agreement

With pending nuptials, many couples shudder to think about bringing up finances unless it is to talk about the wedding. But discussing money and assets, both separate and what will soon become joint, is a crucial step for many newly-engaged couples. Instead of thinking any negativity associated with a prenuptial agreement, many Texas couples are focusing more on the positive and promising aspects that having one can bring to a relationship.
