Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
Protecting Property and Assets
At the Dallas-area office of Attorney C. “Luke” Gunnstaks, we develop prenups and postnups that accomplish client goals and withstand the scrutiny of the court. When correctly prepared, these types of contracts will protect your property and address other concerns if the marriage should end.
People entering a second or third marriage and people with significant assets benefit most from prenuptial agreements. Such clients have often been working for many years and have property that they wish to protect in the event of a divorce. They may have developed a career in entertainment, sports or the arts that has been very lucrative. They may have older children whose inheritance they wish to preserve in the event of a divorce. These and many other reasons send clients to our law firm for prenuptial agreements.
A postnuptial agreement can be a way to protect yourself or others after you are already married and circumstances change. These agreements are particularly useful in Texas because legal separation is not an option under Texas law. A postnup can spell out the details of child custody, support and alimony if a marriage should fail. It can also work to provide for children and other relatives who become disabled and will need lifetime care.
Typical pre- and post-nup clients
Clients come to us seeking prenuptial and postnuptial agreements for reasons like these. We develop enforceable contracts for clients whose divorce we handled and are remarrying. We act for individuals who anticipate inheriting a large amount of money and property. We represent men whose wives are trying to break a prenuptial agreement in hopes of obtaining alimony. Whatever your goals, our lawyer can draft an agreement that meets your needs and that will stand the test of time.
Trust your prenup to a lawyer who can see ahead
Strong pre- and post-marital agreements must be constructed carefully and entered into without coercion, or they will be invalidated by a court. Trust the firm with the ability to anticipate problems down the road. Call Gunnstaks Law Office at 972-590-6572.
