What Can You Protect with a Premarital Agreement?

Divorce can wreak havoc on your assets. Texas is a community property state, which means that all assets received or earned after the date of marriage – except for gifts and inheritance received and certain personal injury settlements are subject to division by the Court.

Having a premarital agreement in place could protect you from:

  • Losing your marital home
  • Losing prized possessions that are designated as marital property
  • Dividing monies or investments that accrued during the marriage

It is important to note that a premarital agreement cannot determine child custody or child support payments. While the document may contain provisions concerning alimony, the court has the right to change them as it sees fit. The court will not honor anything in the agreement if it is considered unconscionable or illegal.

Enforcing a Premarital Agreement

Following marriage, your premarital agreement will be binding. Any provisions therein must be followed during the marriage or at the dissolution of the marriage. Most spouses add a “sunset clause” to their agreement, saying that the document is invalid if they stay married for a certain number of years.

If your spouse violates specific rules in this document or tries to change the terms, hire a Longview family lawyer. Attorney Christina Hollwarth of The Hollwarth Law Firm gives focused attention to each client while seeking a satisfactory solution.
