Are Postmarital Agreements Enforceable in Texas?


A postnuptial (or postmarital) agreement is essentially the same as a prenuptial agreement, except that you and your spouse enter into it after you have already gotten married, rather than before. Postnuptial agreements, also known as partition agreements, allow spouses to specify how they will divide their money and property in the event of a divorce. Texas is among the states that recognizes the legal enforceability of postnuptial agreements. As McKinney divorce attorneys, we are experienced in assisting our clients with the preparation of postnuptial agreements, to ensure that they are legally enforceable, address all ancillary issues, such as creditors’ rights and estate planning considerations, and meet your family’s immediate and long-term needs.

Hear What Our Clients Have To Say

"April Nordhaus and her legal assistant Allison McKenzie have been magnificent to work with. Our will was terribly out of date and no longer provided the legal and financial protection we wanted for ourselves or our children. April spent a significant amount of time discussing our intentions and was able to make numerous recommendations; and her ability to explain legal language and provide examples was invaluable. Allison's meticulous attention to detail kept the whole process on track and moving smoothly toward completion. Under their professional guidance we have been able to craft a complete set of extremely specialized Trusts. We would strongly recommend their services without reservation."
