Skilled Guidance For Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
While thinking about a future that might involve divorce is likely the last thing you want to consider when planning your wedding, it is a scenario that should be considered.

We guide couples in Williamson County, Travis County, Bell County and surrounding communities through these discussions with sensitivity and straightforward legal advice that empowers you to make the best possible decisions for your future.
Understanding Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements
The romantic idealism of marriage can cause newlyweds to forget they are entering into a legal contract with one another. Both aspects of marriage are equally important. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements allow couples to make decisions about a variety of things, including:
- The separation of property owned before the marriage
- The separation of personal finances including debt
- Potential spousal support
- Division of financial responsibilities between spouses during marriage
- Protecting the inheritance of children from previous marriages
While it may seem unromantic to consider these things, having these discussions prior to marriage can create a stronger sense of intimacy and trust if the process transpires in a positive manner. Opening the doors to these conversations now could ultimately save you both a lot of frustration and anger if the marriage should dissolve.
