Understanding prenups

Getting married is a big deal. It is not just two people in love devoting their lives to one another. It is two separate lives, each having their own past, property and financial history, joining together as one. This can cause many concerns and complications. Money can be a significant factor. And, in efforts to protect assets and property in case the union ends in divorce, many couples intending to get married decide to include a prenuptial agreement in their marriage.

Helping navigate a contested divorce

Divorce reportedly impacts roughly half of all marriages. As a result, it is not unheard of to consider this to be a reality even before a couple says "I do," in Texas and elsewhere. Whether that means drafting a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, or making careful financial decisions, being conscience that a marriage could end in divorce could be beneficial in the event that one or both spouses seeks a divorce.

The value of your business can impact property division

Your business is one of the most valuable assets you have. In your divorce, you understand how critical it is to secure a property division settlement that allows you to keep your business going. You have the right to do everything you can to protect the small business you worked hard to build and grow over the years.

Addressing specific property division questions

When's the last time you had an accurate and up-to-date accounting of all your financial accounts? This could include a 401(k), savings account or other financial assets. It could also mean the status of your liabilities, like credit card accounts or auto loans. If you aren't able to answer these questions off the top of your head - you're not alone.
