Is the Business Protected By a Prenuptial Agreement?

Texas laws regarding prenuptial agreements are clear. Both parties receive equal protection under the law. Property contracts between spouses can protect the original value of the business, professional practice, or other separate property, but any increased value or commingled assets may be open to classification as marital assets. Our lawyers have extensive experience in property cases involving prenuptial agreement litigation. If you included your business in a prenup or post-marital agreement, we can advise you on how it might impact your current divorce.

We work with many of the leading financial professionals including top forensic accountants in Central Texas when preparing our property settlement cases. This includes:

  • Assets from family businesses or professional practices
  • Retirement accounts like 401(ks), IRAs, Roth IRAs and pensions
  • Investment accounts, stock options and other corporate benefits

Prenuptial and Postmarital Agreement Litigation

Prenuptial agreements and post-marital contracts must be signed under a specific set of conditions that protect the rights of both parties. Many divorces in Central Texas require prenuptial contract litigation to determine whether one of the spouses has the right to claim some of the increased value of assets initially protected by a prenuptial agreement — or deny debt obligations covered by the contract. We have extensive experience handling high-asset divorce property and debt settlements and litigation involving prenuptial or postnuptial contracts.
