El Paso Pre & Post Marital Agreements Attorney
Providing Compassionate, High-Quality Legal Services
Pre- and postnuptial agreements are legally binding documents between a couple that outlines how their property, debts, and assets will be managed in the event of a divorce. The key difference between the two marital agreements is when they are drafted; while prenups are drafted and signed before a couple marries, postnuptial agreements are completed after a couple is already married.
Many couples consider drafting a pre- or post-marital agreement if either or both spouses have an inheritance, a large number of assets they are bringing into the marriage, a high-earning profession, own a business or business shares, and/or have children from a previous marriage. Whatever your reason for considering a pre- or postnuptial agreement, you can trust our attorney to help you protect your assets and financial future.

Common Misconceptions About Marital Agreements
Many people worry that asking for a pre-or postnuptial agreement puts a cloud over their relationship because of all the misconceptions concerning marital agreements. Five common myths and misconceptions about marital agreements include:
- Pre- and postnuptial agreements doom your marriage. Marital agreements are like insurance policies. While you don’t plan to get in an accident or have a flood ruin your hardwood floors, you want to be protected if something does happen.
- Pre- and postnuptial agreements signal trust issues within relationships. Asking for and/or drafting a marital agreement does not mean that either party lacks trust in the other party or the relationship. Because drafting a pre- or postnuptial agreement requires so much communication about serious topics, couples have to believe in their abilities to compromise and have healthy, serious conversations about finances and the future.
- Pre- and postnuptial agreements are only for wealthy couples. Couples in all income brackets can benefit from having a marital agreement as they can help protect you from future financial disputes and burdens.
- Pre- and postnuptial agreements are unfair to one party. Many people believe that prenuptial and postnuptial agreements only protect the party with the most assets or the party who requested the marital agreement. However, marital agreements are meant to protect both parties, and if your marital agreement is unconscionable or unfair (because a party was not given fair and accurate information, the agreement is not enforceable.
- Pre- and postnuptial agreements aren’t enforced by courts. Marital agreements are enforceable as long as they adhere to the law. By working with our attorney, you can ensure that you draft a fair, enforceable agreement.
