Southlake Postnuptial Attorneys
Preserving Financial Security after Marriage: (817) 477-6756
The Texas Family Code allows for both prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. A postnuptial agreement essentially works in the same way as a prenuptial agreement, but it is signed after the date of marriage. Much like prenups, postnuptial agreements can be used to distinguish between marital and separate property, as well as how this property will be divided in the event of divorce or the death of one spouse. There are many reasons to consider signing a postnuptial agreement. You may wish to ensure that a family business stays in the family. You may want to protect your children from a previous marriage. You may even wish to protect yourself or your spouse from a large amount of debt. No matter the reason, our team can help.

Are Postnuptial Agreements Enforceable in Tarrant County?
In short, yes. Postnuptial agreements are enforceable in the state of Texas as long as they meet certain requirements set forth by Texas family law.
A postnuptial agreement is valid and enforceable if:
- The agreement is in writing
- Both parties signed the agreement
- Both parties were of sound mind when they signed the agreement
- Each party has the legal capacity to enter the agreement
- The agreement was signed voluntarily by both parties
- Each party fully and fairly disclosed all assets, properties, debts, and liabilities
- The agreement does not violate any law or public policy
Additionally, postnuptial agreements can be modified or even fully revoked at any time, so long as both parties are in agreement and any changes or revocations are put in writing and signed by both spouses. In certain cases, it is not necessary for both parties to disclose all assets/liabilities as long as a valid waiver has been signed.
