Prenuptial & Post-Nuptial Agreement Attorney
During preparations for a new marriage, the last thing you want to consider is the possibility of divorce. Yet, when you need to protect your assets, it is necessary to have a prenuptial agreement. At the Law Offices of J. Gregory Whitten in McKinney, Texas, we assist clients in drafting both prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements.
Couples from all walks of life and in all situations come to The Law Offices of J. Gregory Whitten. A prenuptial agreement delineates what is separate property and what is marital property prior to the wedding ceremony. A premarital agreement is particularly useful when one spouse has a significant financial interest in a family business. Another common situation where a prenuptial agreement is helpful is in a second marriage, where one spouse wants to protect finances and property for their children from an earlier marriage.
Marital Agreements can be both proactive steps and pragmatic decisions.
A prenuptial agreement is a legally binding agreement, requiring full disclosure of all finances and assets by each person. A spouse attempting to conceal assets could nullify the prenuptial agreement. Additionally, each spouse must enter into a prenuptial agreement of their own free will.
A post-nuptial agreement is a way to tie up loose ends following a marriage. If both husband and wife agree to the document, they can still protect their finances and assets after taking their marriage vows.
A prenuptial agreement is both a proactive step and a pragmatic decision. Marriages can end in divorce. Let the Law Offices of J. Gregory Whitten assist you in taking this step.
