Beaumont Divorce Lawyer Texas Prenuptials and Postnuptial Attorney

Law Offices of Suzanne Schaper

First or subsequent marriage?

First or subsequent marriage? Both premarital and post-marital agreements serve to protect the rights of both parties. Hire a practical divorce attorney who can communicate to both parties the protection and ...yes, even the romance, that comes with a secure future.

Planning for a marriage is a wonderful time in life filled with great optimism about the future you will build together. This time is usually filled with making plans for a wedding and honeymoon. At Suzanne Schaper Law Firm, we encourage our clients to put into writing a joint expression of the couple's wishes for the future.

A postnuptial agreement, also referred to as a partition agreement, is basically a prenuptial agreement after the wedding. The postnuptial agreement divides the community estate into two separate estates and has the same effect as a prenuptial.

Prenuptial Agreement

Prenuptial agreements are not just for couples who are dealing with financial inequality or couples who have a lot of wealth. These agreements are for couples that want to have full financial disclosure prior to walking down the aisle, whether it is the first or subsequent time. A prenup allows the couple to spell out how they will handle the financial aspects of their marriage. This is not very romantic but having an open financial discussion prior to marriage will serve as a safeguard to future financial disputes.

Postnuptial Agreement

Postnuptial agreements are for married couples that want to protect themselves for the unexpected in the future. These agreements can actually help couples resolve ongoing struggles with financial differences. Full disclosure of assets by each spouse allows the couple to make key financial decisions that may alleviate stress in their marriage. However, it is not a substitute for a divorce if it appears that the couple cannot continue to be married. We have seen postnuptial agreements settle financial arguments between couples and give them the time and freedom to work on their relationship.
