Helping Couples With Marital Agreements

Prenuptial Agreements ∙ Postnuptial Agreements

When you are getting married and beginning to plan your life together, an important part of that planning may be the creation of a prenuptial agreement. Marriage means committing to a lifetime of financial partnership with your spouse.

Although no one wants to think that problems could arise with that partnership, creating a written prenuptial agreement can help keep you both on track.

Board Certified Family Law Attorney

I am attorney Bruce C. Zivley. I have been focusing on family law for 30 years and am board certified in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. I pay attention to every detail, making sure that the prenuptial agreement I write for you will hold up in court if you ever need it. I draft and review postnuptial and prenuptial agreements to help couples plan effectively.

Do You Need A Prenuptial Agreement?

Prenuptial agreements can be especially important for people with substantial or complicated assets and debts, such as couples who are marrying later in life or entering second marriages. Typically, these individuals have progressed further into their careers than couples just starting out. These couples may have accumulated 401(k) assets, business assets and other substantial assets that should be protected.

Premarital agreements can also be particularly beneficial for second marriages and marriages where children are involved. These agreements protect both spouses and their children and heirs, in case anything happens during the marriage.

Getting To Know You And What You Need

As a lawyer working in a small law firm, I know my clients as individuals. I work closely with each of them. When I draft a prenuptial agreement, I make sure that my work is custom-tailored to fit their exact specifications.

Texas law places certain requirements on prenuptial agreements in order for them to be enforceable. For example, there must be full disclosure by both parties, and both parties must have had an opportunity to obtain separate legal counsel.
