Custom Prenuptial or Marital Property Agreement
Texas law provides that a couple intending to marry can enter into a prenuptial agreement, and a married couple can partition their community estate into two separate estates. There is a common misconception that such an agreement must state that everything remains separate. That is not the law. The standard prenup and standard partition packages available on pages on this site provide for such a document.
Texas statues regarding premarital agreements “should be construed as broadly as possible in order to allow the parties as much flexibility to contract with respect to property or other rights incident to marriage…”
Williams v. Williams, Texas Supreme Court, 1978
A Specific Agreement Just for You
However, if you want to tailor your own agreement that takes into account your specific situation a custom prenuptial or marital property agreement is appropriate.
