One of the most important aspects of marriage is certainty. Unfortunately, with approximately 50% of all marriages ending in divorce, the only way that a Texas couple can provide for certainty is to enter into a premarital or prenuptial agreement. As a lawyer will tell you, premarital agreements help couples know where they stand during the marriage.

If the unfortunate should occur and the couple gets divorced, a premarital or prenuptial agreement can help avoid legal and financial uncertainty.

If you would like more information about what these agreements include or if you would like to see if they are right for you, please call 713-877-8800 or email to set up a consultation.
