Why Have a Premarital Agreement?
Many couples may have valid concerns when considering whether to marry. Often this occurs when couples consider a second marriage. But a Premarital Agreement can help resolve the worry. A Premarital Agreement is basically a contract between two parties. It may be a good idea even when one enters into a first marriage. Under the Texas Family Code, after marriage almost all income is considered community property. If a party has financial obligations to former spouses or children from the previous marriage, this may present complications. This is why you want to consider a this contract.
A future spouse may want to make clear intentions about many topics. A future spouse may want to preserve a family’s existing assets for children from an earlier marriage. Spouses may want to eliminate or limit any future alimony obligations. Spouses may want to keep a party’s income separate to pay off premarital debts or meet financial obligations to a former spouse. Actually, some famous couples included “bad boy provisions” into agreements!
