Postnuptial agreements continue to gain popularity

Some couples who did not enter into a prenuptial agreement before marriage are taking a look at creating the postnuptial variety. Interest has begun to build even for couples who have been together for decades. While it is a relatively new area of law, the postnuptial agreement may be as important in helping to save a marriage as it is in speaking to the division of assets in case of divorce.

Divorce Requirements in Texas

Once you have decided to get out of a bad marriage, it's time to start the actual process of divorce that would separate you from your spouse in the eyes of the law. In Texas, one of the spouses has to be a legal resident of the state for at least six months in order to file for divorce. Also, the person needs to have resided in the country for a full 90 days before filing the divorce documents. If it so happens that one spouse is a Texas resident while the other spouse is located in a different state or even country, the non-resident spouse can file for divorce in the other location.

Preparing for a High Asset Divorce

Divorces are rarely pleasant experiences, and the level of animosity rises when there is a great deal of money at stake. That is why certain preparations need to be made to ensure you get your share from the divorce proceedings. Sift through the records of your marriage, such as photos, receipts and other assets you own. If you have made any expensive purchases, make sure you carry the full documents relating to the buy. Keep a file containing wills, trusts, bank statements, loan details etc. and place it in a safe location.
