It’s also used to eliminate, limit, or set future spousal support payments. Since there’s no formal alimony in Texas, it would referred to as spousal support. It can also be used to insure that income from each party is kept separate. As Texas is a community property state, any income that you earned during the marriage is normally considered to be community property. A premarital agreement insures that that income is kept separate for each spouse that earns it.
There are different tax liability deviations that can happen as well. In a premarital agreement you can specifically identify who has what tax liability during the marriage. Finally, you can talk about things like the rights and duties of the parties during the marriage. Who’s going to take care of the children? Who’s going to be the primary income earner? Who’s going to be responsible for managing the finances?
