Prenuptial agreements are not for everyone. Prenuptial agreements are agreements that couples enter into in contemplation of marriage. They must be executed before the marriage to be considered a prenuptial agreement. They discuss the couple’s property and how it is to be classified before, during and after (should a divorce occur) the marriage.
The purpose is usually to ensure that separate property remains separate property after the marriage. This is necessary because Texas is a community property state. It is presumed upon divorce, that the property a couple possesses is community property. A prenuptial agreement is a good way to rebut that presumption. If you desire to enter into a prenuptial agreement, we will need a complete listing of the property you and your fiance own and the debts you each owe.
