What Is a Marital Agreement?
A marital agreement is a legal document that contains the financial terms and conditions of a couple's marriage. This document can outline many different things, such as who will be responsible for certain expenses, how property will be divided, and how decisions will be made regarding debts, property, and more upon the event of a spouse's death or in the case of a divorce. The couple can also create a post-nuptial agreement, which outlines the same terms but is created after the marriage.
How Do Marital Agreements Work?
Marital agreements are created with the help of a lawyer. When drafting a marital agreement, the lawyer will work with the couple to outline the terms they wish to include. The lawyer will then draft the marital agreement, ensuring that all the terms would hold up in court if ever needed, and the couple will then review and sign. Once the couple has signed the marital agreement, it is considered a binding contract that outlines the terms of the marriage.
Can a Marital Agreement Protect Spousal Support?
Yes, a marital agreement can outline who will be responsible for spousal support and how it will be paid.
However, it should be noted that Texas courts do not grant alimony in every single divorce. There need to be certain requirements in place, such as one spouse being unable to support themselves or meet their basic needs. Discussing the terms of your marital agreement with a family lawyer is highly advisable, to make sure that the terms outlined for alimony are actually legal binding and protect each parties' rights and interests.
