McKinney Family Lawyer for Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements

Helping Protect You & Your Family

Being engaged is one of the most joyful periods in someone’s life, which is why it’s easy to forget that entering into a marriage is a legal contract with several severe stipulations attached. No one wants to believe their happy ending won’t pan out in their favor, but the reality is, there is always a chance that either one or both of you may feel the need to terminate the marriage. In the case of that happening, there are certain precautions to take in order to protect your assets and protect yourself and your family from dealing with a long and complicated process.

In this day and age, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements no longer hold the same taboo they once did. They are simply legal documents that allow you to protect your assets, and have become more common than you may think--making them a very necessary precaution. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements aren’t only for the extremely rich and famous, and there are more reasons for them than you may realize.

The following are factors that may be cause for a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement:

  • Prior marriage
  • Children with someone other than future spouse
  • Property
  • Debt
  • Dual-income household
  • Significant difference in earning power

  • Taylor was wonderful and easy to work with.

    “Taylor was wonderful and easy to work with. He was very quick which was helpful since I brought my baby with me. He was also very straightforward which was appreciated! He gave some suggestions on changing up our life insurance policy while also getting all the information needed to write up our documents. When it comes to protecting my family in times of crisis and hard times, I trust we will be protected because of the work that he puts into helping us plan for the unexpected. He was personable and related to our circumstances because he’s been there. I highly recommend him to everyone!”

  • Taylor's expertise along with the firms very knowledgeable and professional staff are something every family should experience when it comes to estate planning.

    “My wife and I have a blended family and were blind to what we needed to have established in order to protect our legacy in the event something devastating happened to one or both of us. Taylor made this easy, simple to understand, and also guided us through some of the tough decisions that we could make ahead of time instead of putting our family through turmoil later. Taylor's expertise along with the firms very knowledgeable and professional staff are something every family should experience when it comes to estate planning. A process that can be frightening and uncomfortable to discuss was turned into a great experience and provide valuable protection for our family within a very short period of time.”

  • Taylor Willingham actually helps set up estate planning and wills so there will not be any legal wrangling over estates when the time comes.

    “Was surprised (in a good way) to see how Taylor Willingham actually helps set up estate planning and wills so there will not be any legal wrangling over estates when the time comes. Too many lawyers want to to set up wills so there is still plenty of billable hours for them at probate. A very refreshing change!”
