Collin County Family Law Attorney for Property Agreements

Dallas County property agreement attorney

Lawyer for Prenuptial Agreements, Postnuptial Agreements, and Cohabitation Agreements in Frisco and Prosper

Married spouses have certain rights related to the property they own, the forms of support they are entitled to receive, and the decisions they can make for each other. However, there are some situations where one or both spouses may want additional protections. Unmarried couples may also need to take steps to secure certain rights and address what will happen in a potential breakup. In these cases, couples can enter into property agreements that will define their rights and responsibilities and make decisions about property ownership and other issues.

When addressing matters related to property rights, it is important to work with an attorney who understands the laws that apply to property agreements and who can advise couples on the best ways to protect themselves. At the Law Office of Linda Risinger, we regularly provide legal help to clients in multiple types of family law cases, and we can work with you to create a property agreement that will meet your needs. We will make sure to explain your rights, and we will help you and your partner negotiate a workable agreement that will provide you with the reassurance that matters will be handled properly in the future.

Benefits of Property Agreements

A property agreement functions as a legal contract between married spouses or unmarried partners. By executing this type of agreement, couples can make sure they fully understand the extent of the property they own, both together and separately, and they can make decisions about how ownership of this property will be handled in the future. This will not only provide them with the assurance that their rights regarding their property will be protected, but it can help them avoid uncertainty if they encounter relationship issues that may lead to a divorce or breakup.

Legal agreements for couples that address property and other issues include:

  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements - If a person who is planning to get married owns a business or other significant assets, or if either member of a couple earns a large income, a prenuptial agreement may be used to protect their assets and financial interests. Couples may also enter into a postnuptial agreement after getting married, and they may address issues such as how their community property will be divided in a potential divorce or whether one spouse will pay spousal support to the other. These agreements can not only offer financial protection, but they can eliminate confusion and uncertainty from the divorce process by making decisions about financial matters ahead of time.
  • Cohabitation agreements - Unmarried couples who currently live together or who are planning to cohabitate can create an agreement that will address their rights if their relationship ends in the future. These types of agreements can be used to establish some of the rights that would apply to a married couple. In addition to addressing property ownership and financial support, an agreement can also define each person's responsibilities regarding finances and household responsibilities, and it can provide a couple with the right to make decisions for each other in emergencies.
