Houston Lawyer 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 or postnuptial 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, as an experienced attorney, I know that creating a written prenuptial agreement can help keep you both on track.
I have been focusing on family law for 25 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.
At the Houston, Texas, law office of Bruce C. Zivley, Attorney at Law, I draft and review postnuptial and prenuptial agreements to help couples plan effectively. Contact me by e-mail to set up an appointment. Or, call 888-837-2157 for a free phone consultation.
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 and have accumulated 401k assets, business assets, or other substantial assets that should be protected.
Premarital agreements can also be particularly beneficial for second marriages or marriages where children are involved. These agreements protect both spouses and their children and heirs, in case anything happens during the marriage.
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 according to clients' exact specifications, I make sure that my work is custom-tailored to fit their needs.
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 opportunity for separate legal counsel.
