1. Is having a prenuptial agreement considered to be rude and not trusting with your spouse in general? Do most people actually get it?
Some people consider a prenup as a sign that you're already anticipating the marriage will fail. Others think they make a lot of sense in terms of protecting your assets. Random people on the internet can't predict how your girlfriend will feel about it if you suggest signing one.
2. If I DON'T sign the agreement and somehow she decides to just divorce me for no reason other than obtaining my wealth - say she cheats on me and demands a divorce - there'll be no way I can counteract this? (I don't want to sound shallow, but I'll be earning much more than she will be, so was wondering if it's legal for her to just divorce me for the money or does she have to have a legitimate reason)
People can obtain a divorce simply based on the fact that they no longer wish to remain married. No reason needs to be given. So yes, I suppose your future wife could just divorce you "for the money" and you wouldn't be able to stop her. You can't force someone to stay married to you if they don't want to.
3. If I DO sign it, how much still will I have to pay her? What if kids are involved.
You need to understand that a prenup will only protect whatever assets you have before getting married. Whatever either you or your spouse acquire during the marriage is considered marital property that belongs to the two of you equally. If a divorce should occur, all marital property will be split equally between the two of you. So unless you're quite wealthy right now (not just anticipating that you'll be making a lot of money one day), it's probably a waste of time to get a prenup. If kids are involved, whatever the laws in your state say about custody, visitation and child support will apply. Nothing that is written up in a prenup has the power to override existing legislation.
In a nutshell, marry a woman who is not a gold-digger. Don't marry someone because she's sexy or because she's willing to put out. Marry someone who has kindness, loyalty, respect, class and a sense of humor. That kind of woman is most likely to be the kind of woman you'll actually spend the rest of your life with. Also, work on your own insecurities. You are worrying about losing money you haven't even made yet. Doesn't that seem a little over the top to you in terms of unfounded paranoia?
With complete documentation and reasoning several attorneys will work..When I looked up Harris County this link is what came up first in a search...http://attorneypages.com/543TX2655/index...
1. Most will offer a 1 time meeting at no charge...ask them about your situation and how they have handled it in the past and what the outcome was..
2. Interview several as this is going to be your partner throughout the entire custodial battle. This one and any in the future.
3. Ask about retainer fees and payment arrangements before you sign the contract....Make sure that a retainer fee will continue your relationship until a new order needs to be written that it does not expire with an Order or Stipulation.. This is one that is important and can save you thousands as some Attorneys will start a new retainer with each new issue that arises..
