Marital & Cohabitation Agreements in Texas

Texas has a variety of marital agreements in place: prenuptial, postnuptial, cohabitation, nonnuptial, and right of survivorship. Each of the agreements is governed by different and nuanced statutory and common law, and can significantly impact the way that parties enter into and dissolve their formal or informal relationship under Texas law.
