What Are Dallas Prenuptial Agreements?

A Fort Worth prenuptial agreement is a premarital agreement. Their purpose is to modify Texas’ community property laws in accordance with the terms of the prenup. These common prenuptial agreement clauses might include:

  • Property division in the event of divorce;
  • Division of debts in the event of divorce;
  • Spousal support (alimony) after a divorce; and
  • What visitation arrangements will the non-custodial spouse enjoy?
  • The disposition of business assets held by one spouse.

If the couple decides to divorce but wishes to modify the prenuptial agreement, they can enter into a pre-divorce agreement in the DFW area.

Texas Postmarital Agreements

What Are Texas Postmarital Agreements?

Married couples often enter into postnuptial agreements, which is just a prenuptial agreement after marriage. A post marital agreement in Texas can protect you if circumstances change after you marry. Suppose, for example, that one spouse receives a large inheritance during the marriage.  Although the inheritance belongs to that spouse, the appreciation of its value during the marriage is community property unless an antenuptial or postnuptial agreement declares otherwise.

Do You Need a Prenuptial or Post-Marital Agreement in Dallas?

If one of the following scenarios describes your situation, then you are likely to need a Texas marriage contract and a lawyer for prenuptial agreement:

  • You or your spouse, or both of you, have high assets;
  • You or your spouse, or both of you, have high debts;
  • There is a large wealth disparity between you and your spouse;
  • You or your spouse, or both of you, have children;
  • You or your spouse, or both of you, have separate property;
  • You or your spouse, or both of you, have been married before, or
  • You own a business whose assets you wish to protect from Texas community property law.

Without a prenuptial or postmarital agreement, in the event of a divorce, you could be at the mercy of what your spouse is willing to agree to during an emotionally traumatic time. If you can’t agree, a judge will decide on the distribution of your assets based on Texas community property law. Better to make these decisions in advance, when both of you are capable of calmly considering the issues at stake with an attorney for prenuptial agreement negotiation.

Our Successful Cases

Following are examples of some of our recent results:

Obtained a not guilty verdict for a client criminally accused of domestic violence. The criminal matter would have had an effect on the final custody determination. Brooks and Radchenko helped the client in his criminal matter to ensure that we could fight for him to obtain more time with his child moving forward.
We overturned a temporary order of custody returning a child into primary possession of his father prior to a final determination hearing.
We returned a baby girl to her mom after they were separated for a year because of false accusations of the father. The mom was reunited with her younger daughter as the full time custodian. She was also able to obtain expanded visitation rights with her oldest daughter who is in the primary custody of her father.
Won custody on a pretty tough case. A child was taken from his mother where he lived his entire life. The father was on the run staying at various trailer parks and hotels. We were nervous that we would not be able to serve him. We worked with our local investigator. We found the child and the father, served him, and were able to reunite the mother with her child.
We were able to give temporary custody to a woman who was being verbally and physically abused by her husband. She is an immigrant and he would consistently use her immigration status against her by telling her he would have her deported and take her son. When she was ready to leave he tried to file orders of protection and made up allegations. We were able to file an emergency motion asking for our own order of protection, asking that the mother be named temporary primary guardian and we won.
We were able to reunite a child with his father. In this case, the child was in the primary custody of the mother and the father had a right of visitation. We appeared at a hearing where testimony was taken from the mother and the father. We also had a home study conducted on the home of both parents. We found that the mother was neglectful in that she did not help the child with his homework, she allowed him to play endless hours of video games, and the child sustained bruises and burns in her custody. After the hearing, the judge ruled that the father should be the primary guardian while allowing the mother visitation rights with the child.
Represented a man in a child custody matter. During the pendency of that matter, his girlfriend accused him of family violence. We defended the man in his criminal activities. In that action, there was no proof of violence. No photos of the injuries and no medical records documenting any injuries. The complaint was made almost 1, 1/2 months following the alleged incident. A full criminal trial was held. We held a full criminal jury trial. The man was acquitted on all charges.

These are only a few of many examples

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How much does a prenup attorney cost in Texas?

    arrow-svg

    Hiring a prenup attorney is not something you want to skimp on. If your lawyer drafts carelessly or incompetently, you could end with very unexpected, very unpleasant consequences years down the road. That being said, however, the average Texas prenuptial agreement cost is anywhere between $1200.00 to $2500.00 depending on the complexity of the agreement.

  • How long before a wedding should we sign the prenup?

    arrow-svg

    You should sign your prenup one to three months before the marriage takes place. Get started much earlier than that. It will take time for you to discuss the issues with your spouse-to-be, and it will take time for your attorney to draft the agreement. Don’t wait until the last minute–reviewing a contract is not something you want to be doing on your wedding night!

  • What happens if you don't have a prenuptial agreement?

    arrow-svg

    Without a prenuptial agreement, you leave yourself open to a multitude of issues down the road. From property rights to spousal support, there’s a lot that goes into keeping yourself, your partner, and your family safe, and a prenup is a way to do so.
