Prenuptial Agreements: What You Need To Know

One way to avoid conflicts down the road is to put a prenuptial agreement into place prior to getting married. I will review your premarital assets and explain options that allow you to keep certain assets in the event your marriage fails in the future. Premarital agreements, which are also called prenuptial agreements, are extremely valuable and useful tools to protect property you have worked so hard to acquire.

I am Zoe Meigs, an experienced Fort Worth prenuptial agreements attorney. I have handled family law cases exclusively for more than 15 years. I provide trusted legal advice based on each client's unique circumstances and goals.

Advantages Of A Prenuptial Agreement

The purpose of a prenuptial agreement is to protect the assets of each person if he or she later gets a divorce. A prenuptial agreement will state the details of each spouse's finances prior to the marriage and establish his or her future property rights. These agreements are useful for:

  • Determining what property will be separate and community
  • Protecting the separate property each spouse has before the marriage
  • Setting out each person's rights during property division in divorce

Requirements Of Prenuptial Agreements

For any prenuptial agreement to be valid, specific requirements must be met, including:

  • Each party must have the opportunity to consult with a lawyer
  • Each party must disclose fully all assets and debts

I represent clients seeking and those responding to prenuptial agreements. In any case, I zealously protect my clients' rights and pursue their interests.
