A prenuptial agreement is often seen as a way to insure one's wealth against the possibility having to turn over a portion of one's assets to an ex-spouse following divorce. However, prenuptial agreements are in fact useful to a wide variety of Houston couples, including those who have the good fortune of remaining happily married.
Among other reasons, this is because a prenuptial agreement can specify certain terms that pertain to how each spouse's children will be treated in the event that one or both of the spouses die. In situations involving a first marriage, this issue can be fairly straightforward. However, with subsequent marriages the issue may become more complicated. Addressing this matter in a prenuptial agreement can help avoid conflict between a new spouse and the children by a prior marriage.
