Marital Property Agreements for Northwest Houston Couples
Traditionally, many people associated the need for a "prenuptial agreement" only with wealthy businesspeople and celebrities. Today, many Texas couples — across the spectrum of ages and different financial circumstances — have excellent reasons for forming a legal contract addressing distribution of their property in the event of divorce or one spouse's death.
At Regan Armstrong & Associates PLLC, our dedicated attorneys are well prepared to help you clarify your goals and develop a sound premarital or marital property agreement. As the names suggest, such a contract can be drafted and executed either before or after marriage. For personal attention, caring guidance and efficient service, please call or e-mail us and request a consultation.
For people planning to marry, a premarital property agreement (still often called a prenuptial agreement) can address key concerns such as:
- Establishing rights and estate-related stipulations for valuable assets that either party has accumulated prior to the marriage — such as business interests, substantial 401(k) plans and pensions, real estate and other investments
- Protecting the financial interests and clarifying expectations for children from a prior marriage
- Allowing the marriage to go forward without one spouse accepting major debts, tax liabilities or other problems incurred by the other
Post-Nuptial as Well as Prenuptial Agreements to Protect Your Assets
Older couples may benefit from formation of a marital property agreement that transfers key assets to one spouse, with the intention of accomplishing other estate planning goals. In addition to our own family law experience and knowledge of wills and probate, we can call on specialized financial resources — tax accountants, business valuation experts, and others — to help analyze your needs and accomplish your goals.
