Interview with Cindy K Hide, Houston Prenup Attorney

Houston Prenup Attorney

You may wonder whether you need a marriage agreement? The better question may be … how much could it cost you without one? Nearly half of the marriages in the United States continue to end in divorce. A thoughtful, well-crafted premarital agreement is your insurance for a healthy financial future and minimal adversity in the event your relationship is limited.

Some of the more common reasons for making a marriage agreement include: protecting real or personal property rights, entrepreneurial interests such as a professional practice or business, or, the terms of an existing contract.

While any family law attorney is probably capable of drafting your premarital, postmarital, or cohabitation agreement, a lawyer who focuses on marital agreements is more well-versed in the nuances and issues that may arrise. After all, do you visit your general family doctor to treat you for a skin condition? You could, but it is probably better if you see your dermotologist. The same can be said for marital agreements.

Cindy Hide is a family law attorney who focuses her boutique Galleria practice on crafting unique and effective prenuptial agreements, postnuptial, and cohabitation agreements. Harmonizing her years of experience as a seasoned attorney, and more years as a businesswoman, public servant, author, publisher, and mom, she understands the issues and challenges that crafting an iron clad agreement can present.

Cindy’s passion for helping couples create a secure foundation is based on her strong belief in family and the importance of navigating challenges with compassion and care. Anticipating those challenges at any age or stage in life is critical for a successful future. A prenuptial agreement, or prenup agreement, can do just that by resolving issues in your marriage the way you choose instead of what would otherwise be dictated by state law. In other words, you choose how to manage your personal and financial affairs, not the state statutes. Most importantly, you enjoy the benefit of avoiding problems before they occur when you sign a prenup.

Cindy grew up in Houston and attended the University of Houston and the University of Houston Law Center. She is a Texas Bar College Fellow, member of the State Bar of Texas, the Houston Bar Association, The Burta Raborn Inns of Court, and The American Bar Association.

Cindy is a caring, competent lawyer who I would hire again for another family law matter if needed. I refer others to her because she was a savvy negotiator and very strategic about how to handle my case. She listened carefully to my concerns and then did what was necessary without creating more conflict in an already contentious situation. I highly recommend her if you’re getting a divorce, or, getting married and you need a prenuptial agreement.

It is doable to have a very deeply respectful and successful “conscious uncoupling”, especially when you have an attorney like Cindy Hide who holds the highest standards for what is possible. I am so grateful for Cindy and her prodigious professional expertise as well as her genuine care and respect, along with her ability to hold the big picture for everyone. We had been having a hard time finding just the right family law attorney, who was also a mediator, to handle our divorce. This was before “conscious uncoupling” became popular and no one seemed to want to deal with an uncontested divorce that required some delicate negotiations regarding the final settlement. From the moment I met Cindy, I knew she could provide the perfect solution. She understood and believed in our concept, she had all the qualifications I was looking for, and most of all she had exactly the win-win attitude that I knew would be necessary to facilitate a successful process for both myself and my soon to be former husband. She took her time with each of us so that everyone was comfortable and she enabled both of us to relax into the whole legal process as well. It is emotionally intense enough to go through a divorce, but with the added financial and legal implications it can be very scary. Cindy was able to put each of us at ease, even when we had vastly different concerns during the process, because she knew we both desired the same functional outcome. This clearly became a team effort and we got it all – the divorce, the platform for an ongoing positive familial social relationship, and the financial trust and respect by/for both parties – all thanks to Cindy.

Prenup Agreement Texas

A young couple under age 35

Student loans or credit card debt may be an unfortunate reality of starting life together and you may not want to share in the repayment of your debts. If you’re just starting a new business, you may prefer to keep the equity and growth in a new venture as your separate property until you feel certain that your relationship is truly one of a lifetime. The same may be true for a spouse launching a professional practice.

Prenuptial Agreement

A couple age 36 to 60

If you’re in this age group, you may be entering a second or third marriage and have very different issues than a couple who is just starting out. Your goal may or may not be to keep retirement or earnings accounts separate after marriage. Maybe there’s an issue of support for a student spouse later in life, or, perhaps one person is giving up a career in order to stay at home and raise children.

Texas Prenuptial Agreement

A mature couple over age 60

Your goal for a prenup may be primarily focused on preserving assets for your children from a previous marriage, and, to insure that your retirement funds or separate property assets are not compromised in the event of divorce. While even a simple prenuptial agreement should be compatible with an estate plan, this is especially true for couples in this age group.
