Beaumont Divorce Lawyer Texas Prenuptials and Postnuptial Attorney
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 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 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.

Suzanne was so amazingly compassionate and truely cared about me as a person, not as a client. I highly recommend her.

Very patient and informative. She sat with me for a good while explaining the process I was about to go through while helping me see angles I had not yet thought of. Very professional and understanding of my situation. She clearly knows what she is doing and that gives comfort through this process.

It's a shame 5 stars is all I can rate Suzanne's office! Suzanne's entire staff really seemed like they cared about what I was going through, I was not just another phone call or box on the shelf when I requested their services. Anytime I went in or called, i was greeted promptly with a smile i could see and hear. Suzanne and her staff give their clients their complete, undivided attention during the entire process... I've never experienced the level of compassion and understanding anywhere like I did while being advised by Suzanne Schaper Law Firm! I hope I'm never in this situation again, but if that time ever comes, you can bet they be my only phone call.

Mrs. Shaper is a very respectful divorce Lawyer. She handled my case with top priority. Her paralegal team was very approachable and easy to talk to about the details of my divorce. I can honestly say without a doubt that getting a divorce is highly stressful. I think it is key that you hire a lawyer that can be attentive to your best interest. Mrs. Shaper is that person that can be by your side when you are going through a tough situation, such as a divorce. I would use her again if I need too.

Ms. Schaper represented me in my divorce and has handled several other family law matters for me since my divorce. Her legal advice, guidance, and professionalism proved to be invaluable. My divorce involved some complicated legal issues that required an in-depth understanding of complex legal issues, and Ms. Schaper not only recognized those complexities, but she was clearly prepared to tackle those issues and fight to resolve them in my favor in the face of vigorous opposition from my ex’s camp. I found Ms. Schaper’s office personnel to be responsive to my calls and questions, and Ms. Schaper never failed to clearly explain all the proceedings to me and prepare me for what to expect. She and her staff always displayed the utmost professionalism and legal knowledge and experience. I have since referred all of my family and friends who are seeking a top-quality family law attorney to Ms. Schaper and have heard nothing but rave reviews from them regarding her legal expertise and representation.

This woman was wonderful! I found her and her father to be very kind and professional. Personally, I think it's a bonus to have a retired state district judge be a member of my legal team. I casually read through the other review from a year ago. I think the EX-SPOUSE of one her clients giving her one star and disliking her is actually a compliment and why I chose to use her in the first place (thank you vengeful person, you ran a very effective advertisement for her)! The last thing I want is my attorney buddying up to my ex. Suzanne was there to represent me and my interest. Not my EX!
