Planning For Your Future: Marital Agreements In San Antonio

Life can be unpredictable, but a strong foundation can make a world of difference, especially when it comes to marriage. The experienced prenuptial agreements lawyers at Kell and Quilty, PLLC, understand the importance of clear communication and planning for the future. We help couples in San Antonio and Bexar County navigate prenuptial agreements created before marriage and postnuptial agreements created after marriage.

Before The Wedding

A prenuptial agreement, also known as a prenup, is a contract created before marriage that outlines how assets and debts will be divided in the event of a divorce. While some may view prenups as unromantic, they can be a valuable tool for:

  • Protecting premarital assets: A prenup can safeguard your separate property, such as inheritances or investments acquired before marriage.
  • Promoting financial transparency: Creating a prenup encourages open communication about finances.
  • Managing expectations: A prenup establishes clear expectations regarding property division and potential spousal support if the marriage dissolves.

A prenuptial agreement means that you and your partner are ready for the future, no matter what it brings. Keep in mind that there are also solutions if you decide you need an agreement after you are married.

After “I do”

A postnuptial agreement is similar to a prenup but created after marriage. These agreements can be beneficial for:

  • Clarifying financial arrangements after significant life changes: Perhaps you’ve received a windfall inheritance or started a business – a postnup can ensure both spouses are on the same page regarding ownership.
  • Addressing changes in financial goals: As your financial situation evolves, a postnuptial agreement can adjust how assets and debts are handled.
  • Protecting assets for children from a previous marriage: A postnup can help safeguard assets intended for children from a prior relationship.

Postnuptial agreements help you have peace of mind about what the future holds because you have a plan in place.
