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.
