Prenuptial (also called “premarital”) agreements are becoming standard practice for engaged couples of all ages and income levels. Why? Because such documents can provide a wide array of benefits. From dictating spousal support terms in a potential divorce to protecting the inheritances of children from a previous relationship, these agreements can offer powerful safeguards.
At the Dallas law firm of Lisa E. McKnight, P.C., we have a long legacy representing clients who range from business and medical professionals to stay-at-home mothers and fathers. Over the past decades, our firm has developed a respected reputation in Texas for our results-focused representation and keen legal counsel. You can rely on us to help you draft a secure prenuptial agreement that works for your unique situation.
Postnuptial Agreements Offer Similar Protections
Postnuptial (also called “postmarital”) agreements are drafted after the marriage instead of before. They can also provide legal protections to help guard your finances and other interests, should the marriage end. We can advise you about whether such a document may be appropriate in your particular situation.
Why Engage The Help Of A Lawyer?
Although many online companies offer “do-it-yourself” agreements, it is wise to have your document drafted by an attorney. Having a lawyer involved can help ensure that:
- The agreement is fair.
- It thoroughly protects your financial interests.
- It is legally enforceable.
