Marital & Prenuptial Agreements

Marital & Prenuptial Agreements Texas law provides for the signing of both marital and premarital (prenuptial) agreements. As one might expect, there are those instances where one future or current spouse finds it insulting; however, the practical reasons for doing so make sense. You may want to confirm separate property or provide that future earnings remain separate. There are times when a client wishes to separate or pre-divide any community property during marriage.Postnuptial agreements, while not necessarily rare, are considered a newer dynamic in family law matters. The goal of these types of contracts is to either put to rest an ongoing dispute or to help ensure any problems that do occur, an answer is already in place. Some see them as an insurance policy, of sorts, that can better protect the marriage. There are those, however, that are insulted or feel it’s unrealistic and unfair for a spouse to make such a request.Jon R. Boyd. firm has guided couples through these processes – either prenuptial or postnuptial agreements – and it understands the delicacy of such matters. Ideally, the couple has already worked through any issues prior to signing the documents; however, there are those instances when Jon can provide a more practical spin for couples who are then able to approach the reality without hurt feelings or damaged pride. Each couple is different, though and it’s often a slow dance – with just one partner leading. It’s been his experience that the absence of ulterior motives and an honest approach are necessary for a positive conclusion.

My experience as Jon’s client was stellar and I can’t imagine having gone through everything the last few years without him going to bat for me. My case was a high conflict child custody modification. Jon is incredibly knowledgeable and he expertly applied this knowledge to my case. He has a very confident, commanding presence in the courtroom and his loyalty to the success of me and my case was clear in his actions. Our outcome was better than I expected and I am happy with the results. He and his staff are diligent, skilled and worth every cent. If you need assertive, sharp, highly skilled representation, then I absolutely recommend Jon. Anonymous

A most genuine ‘Thank You’ from me and my family. (I am) very fortunate that I found you in 2006 to represent me in battling The Devil in Divorce-Custody #1. It’s no secret that I hold you in high regard and probably place unfair expectations on your back to carry into battle with me. Just know that there is no one I trust more than you when it comes to guiding/representing/fighting for me and my family. You earned my respect and trust nine years ago now. I already know the quality of man I walk into the courtroom with. And that provides me a level of confidence which cannot be replaced. I’m loyal to a fault, my friend. The quality of your work and your office staff’s support and responsiveness have all been top notch in dealing with me and my family’s legal issues... Anonymous
