Colleyville Postnuptial Agreement Attorneys
In the past, the idea of signing a prenuptial agreement was immediately met with negative connotations. Recently, however, both prenup and postnuptial contracts are seen more as a system of organization and a way to prevent potential disputes in the future.

The Grapevine prenuptial agreement attorneys at the Law Offices of Thomas & Henderson believe that couples married in Texas should create one or both of these documents. Texas is a community property state. While this concept is ultimately complex, the basic fact is that any assets or debts acquired during the marriage — regardless of who made the purchase — are automatically owned by the community; 100 percent of the assets or debts are owned by both you and your spouse. The only way to keep ownership straight is through the use of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
- A prenuptial agreement is a pre-marriage agreement that stipulates ownership of any property or assets that were acquired before the marriage.
- A postnuptial agreement is used to keep assets and debts acquired throughout the marriage separate.
In our experience, it is best to have a written document in case disputes ever arise. Many couples have an “understanding” or “verbal agreement” about who owns what, but these agreements typically fail in the face of adversity. Our experienced attorneys can easily guide you through the process of drafting either a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.
