Postnuptial Agreement

Florida

Asked on Apr 24, 2023

Can a postnuptial agreement be enforced in another state?

I recently got married and I am looking to create a postnuptial agreement. I live in one state, but my spouse lives in another state. We are both hoping to move to the other's state in the near future. I am wondering if a postnuptial agreement created in one state can be enforced in the other state.

Prenuptial Agreement

Massachusetts

Asked on Mar 21, 2023

How does a prenuptial agreement affect taxes?

As a couple planning to get married, my partner and I are concerned about the tax implications of a prenuptial agreement. We are wondering if entering into a prenuptial agreement will have any impact on our tax obligations or if there are any specific tax considerations that we should be aware of. We are seeking advice from a lawyer who can provide us with guidance on this matter.

Briana C.

Answered Apr 25, 2023

A prenuptial agreement does not in itself affect how taxing authorities will treat the spouses. But it can create promises between the spouses toward one another. For example, it may create a promise to file jointly, or specify that they are making no such promise. And it can create a promise by each spouse to pay the other back for any taxes the other pays on his or spouse's behalf. The decision whether to file jointly or separately does have tax implications with taxing authorities.

Prenuptial Agreement

Massachusetts

Asked on Mar 21, 2023

Is a prenuptial agreement legally binding?

I am planning to get married and I have been advised to consider a prenuptial agreement to protect my assets in the event of a divorce. However, I am unclear on the legal validity and enforceability of a prenuptial agreement and whether it can be challenged or overturned in court. Therefore, I would like to seek the advice of a lawyer to help me understand the legal implications of a prenuptial agreement and ensure that my interests are protected.

Briana C.

Answered Apr 25, 2023

Judges in most cases honor and enforce (signed and notarized) prenuptial agreements between two spouses as long as both parties entered it freely and voluntarily and with full knowledge of one another financial circumstances, and the agreement is not "unconscionable." A prenuptial agreement may not be enforced if (1) either party signed it under duress or coercion or undue pressure (or, say, the night before the wedding), (2) the party seeking to enforce it did not truthfully and completely disclose their financial information, or (3) enforcing the prenup would leave one spouse so destitute that they could not meet their most basic living expenses (i.e., would be forced onto welfare). In short, the prenuptial agreement will be enforced if (1) all the procedural requirements were met at the time it was signed and (2) the terms are not unconscionable, taking into account the circumstances existing at the time of divorce.

Prenuptial Agreement

Texas

Asked on Apr 15, 2023

Can a prenuptial agreement be challenged in court?

I am recently engaged and am considering entering into a prenuptial agreement with my fiancé. We have differing financial backgrounds and I am concerned that the agreement may not be fair to either of us. I want to understand if a prenuptial agreement can be challenged in court and the conditions under which this could happen.

Nicole P.

Answered May 12, 2023

Texas calls prenuptial agreements "Premarital Agreements". These agreements, just like any other contract, can be challenged in court. A challenge to the agreement does not mean it will be found invalid, however. Surviving a challenge to the premarital agreement is primarily accomplished all the way back to when the agreement is drafted and executed. There are requirements or prohibitions for the agreement terms to be valid, which are too numerous to list here, but can be found in the Texas Family Code, chapter 4. In Texas, no consideration is required, but the Agreement must be in writing, and signed by both parties. It must be free from fraud and duress, and entered into voluntarily. It cannot be unconscionable, and the parties must provide a fair and reasonable disclosure of the property and financial obligations (unless waived). Enforcement of a premarital agreement falls under the Texas Family Code 4.006. Additionally, any provision that would adversely affect the support of children is going to be prohibited. Conservatorship and possession/access (custody and visitation) will always be determined by the Court under the best interest of the children standard, regardless of what may have been put into the agreement. The best way to survive a challenge is to hire a competent attorney to draft the agreement, ensure the agreement complies with the Texas Family Code, provide a fair and reasonable disclosure from both parties, both parties being represented by their own attorney when entering into the agreement, and ensuring the agreement is available for review far in advance of the wedding date.

Daughters dads mom keeps harassing and threatening to call CPS and has called CPS on me to be able to see my daughter. I have given her ample chances to fix her mistakes cuz with her she won’t listen to the parent she does and takes things upon herself. Need this stopped please

David H.

Answered Mar 18, 2022

Hello, my name is David hatch I'm a Michigan licensed attorney. I have several years of experience with parenting time and custody issues. That appears to be what you're asking about. It would be helpful first to understand more about the situation. Like if there is a divorce decree and find some time order or any other type of order related to the children in the situation you're dealing with. Once I understand the situation I can help you determine a course of action.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
