Prenuptial/Postnuptial Agreements



A prenuptial agreement is a prudent and legitimate way to protect the assets you bring to a marriage.  If properly drafted, a prenuptial agreement will significantly reduce the costs and time associated with litigation in the event of a divorce.  However, prenuptial agreements are complicated documents and require the expertise of an attorney familiar with the "land mines" to avoid.  


A prenuptial agreement characterizes how property will be divided if the marriage ends through divorce or death.  Primarily, it identifies and classifies separate assets so that the identified property is not subject to a judge’s division upon divorce or death.  Prenuptial agreements provide protection for assets   accumulated during marriage that otherwise would be split evenly under Texas law.  A prenuptial agreement can protect your home, business, employment benefits, deferred compensation, and real property.  No personal assets are off limits, but there is intensive documentation required to protect your assets.

Suits Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship



Unwed parents faced often are faced with many unique issues.  In Texas, parents can address these and other issues by filing what is known as a Suit Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship (“SAPCR”). SAPCRS can affect a myriad of issues including:


  • Child Support;

  • Possession Schedules; and

  • Modifications of either Support or Possession.

In Texas, Courts employ the “best interest of the child” standard, not the desires of either parent, when deciding issues alleged in SAPCRs.  This is based on several factors including but not limited to the age, education, medical needs of the child and the financial situation of both parents.  The Law Offices of Brett Stalcup will walk you through the process and provide you with individualized and personal legal representation throughout the litigation surrounding your children.   You will be well informed and well cared for regardless of the situation.  Litigating parental rights regarding their children can be messy, emotional, and confusing.  Fortunately, the Law Offices of Brett Stalcup are here to protect your interests and guide you through these emotional and complex matters.
