When you are preparing for your wedding, or after your big day, the legal aspects and preparations may not be the most exciting, but they are very important.

Not only can it provide you and your spouse with a sense of security, but it can handle your concerns about your financial assets and how they will be protected. An experienced Irving family law attorney may be able to assist you in drafting your prenuptial agreement.
Why Should I Draft an Agreement?
With divorce rates in the U.S. so high, it is important to think ahead. Should the worst happen, your future and your assets should be legally protected. Though a divorce is never planned when you are getting married, situations and circumstances can change.
A pre- or postnuptial agreement should include the following provisions:
- How previously owned (pre-divorce) property will be divided up
- How property which was acquired during the marriage will be divided up
- Who will be entitled to spousal support or alimony, if appropriate
- How the estate and assets will be divided of one spouse passes away
- Who will pay the attorney fees for the separation or divorce
