Prenuptial Agreements Archives

The damage done by divorce depends on how it is navigated

When Texas couples say "I do," very few of them anticipate that, "I no longer do" might be uttered by one of them at some time in the future. Some say a divorce will be the financial ruin of a man and others say the same about women -- it depends on who is talking. Whichever way, most divorces do not have to include expensive courtroom battles, leaving one or both spouses with empty bank accounts.

Prenuptial agreement: Can cohabitants protect their interests?

As the dynamics of many Texas families change, there are more and more couples who choose to cohabitate -- often with the intent to marry at a later date. Although living together may perfectly fit the circumstances of a couple, untangling finances in the event of a breakup can be messy. Cohabitating couples may want to consider signing a cohabitation agreement, which is similar to a prenuptial agreement for married couples.

Prenuptial agreement important for an older couple

Texas residents who are considering marriage later in life have many aspects to consider. Choosing between marriage and cohabitation is complicated, as each option has pros and cons to evaluate. These are important decisions that may deserve the advice and guidance of skilled legal counsel to ensure informed choices are made. When one or both parties in an older couple have accumulated assets and/or built successful businesses, a prenuptial agreement may be worth considering as a viable proposition.

High net worth divorce may be best navigated by skilled attorneys

Gray divorce can be particularly difficult to navigate alone

Unfortunately, gray divorces are sometimes ruled by emotions and the need to get the proceedings over and done with as quickly as possible,

No prenuptial agreement may cost Johnny Depp dearly

The break-up of the 15-month marriage between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has been reported all over the media. Apart from the news that Heard accused Depp of domestic violence, it is speculated that the couple did not sign a prenuptial agreement. That leads to lots of speculation about the division of assets, as they live in a community property state with divorce laws similar to those here in Texas.

Broaching the subject of a prenuptial agreement can be difficult

Given the high number of divorces nationwide, including in Texas, those who are considering marriage will likely recognize the importance of protecting their interests and also those of their soon-to-be spouses. It is not uncommon for couples to neglect to sign a prenuptial agreement because both parties are concerned about jeopardizing the relationship. However, there are ways in which to broach the subject in a positive manner that will ultimately benefit both parties.

Older and getting married? Consider a prenuptial agreement

The average age of couples walking down the aisle is said to be increasing. While previous generations typically got married in their early 20s, millennials say "I do" closer to 30 years of age. Also, many same-sex couples who have been together for years can now get married as a result of the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision, and other couples may be getting married for a second or third time. With the high number of divorces nationwide, including here in Texas, a prenuptial agreement may be an important insurance policy in the event of a subsequent divorce.

Postnuptial or prenuptial agreement can avoid divorce contention

Although some celebrity divorces involve months or even years of bitter legal battles, the divorces of others may even provide valuable lessons to divorcing couples nationwide, including some in Texas. When Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith announced their intention to consensually divorce back in June of last year, many people were cynical about their ability to keep it civil. However, the couple showed that by the lack of a prenuptial agreement, a postnuptial agreement can resolve some of the issues.

There are certainly lessons to be learned from many of these much-publicized divorces. One aspect of many high-profile divorces that seems to lead to ongoing legal battles is the lack of written contracts. There are manners in which assets in Texas marriages can be divorce-proofed.
