Prenuptial agreements a versatile way for couples to establish terms of marriage, divorce, P.2

In our last post, we noted that different couples have different needs and circumstances and that prenuptial agreements can be used in a variety of ways to address each couple’s situation. In other words, prenuptial agreements are not one-size-fits all. They can be specifically tailored to meet specific needs.

Nowadays, when up to 50 percent of marriages end in failure, couples do well to protect themselves from the financial risks of divorce.

For many Texas spouses, having the ability to keep the family home is a top priority while divorcing. This is not always possible, however, due to the fact that the other party has a right to expect compensation for his or her share of interest in the property.
