Alabama Prenup Agreement Lawyers
Prenuptial agreements have become very common for parties to enter into prior to getting married. They are a great way of ensuring that your business, family and property are protected. Premarital agreements are also beneficial for individuals with children from a prior marriage, because it is possible to ensure that your children receive the assets that you want them to have.
At Gina H. McDonald & Associates, in Alabama, we work with you to create solid prenuptial contracts. Our Alabama attorneys have extensive experience drafting marital contracts. We are committed to learning what is important to you and creating an agreement that protects your interests and properly divides assets in case of a divorce or legal separation.
Prenuptial Agreements in the Jefferson County Area
At our firm, we know what can and cannot be included in a prenuptial agreement in Alabama. Certain things, such as child custody orders and the obligations of either party to pay child support, cannot be decided in a marital contract. You can, however, draft provisions that decide the distribution of assets, which property will be considered separate from the marriage and where debt will be allocated. It is also possible to decide alimony rights.
Courts can refuse to enforce agreements that are drafted too hastily, do not properly disclose all assets or do not properly consider the rights of both parties. Our prenuptial agreement lawyers form a relationship with you in order to learn all the facts we need. We also perform an investigation to reveal assets that may be improperly hidden. This allows us to create strong contracts for you.
Asset Protection With Postnuptial Agreements
Postnuptial agreements are marital contracts that are created after a couple is married. The agreements function very similarly to prenuptial contracts. Postnuptial contracts are very useful for individuals who have formed a new business or corporation after becoming married. Some business may even require a new business partner to create a postnuptial agreement before they become a member of the company in order to ensure the proper succession of the business. It is important to understand that post-nuptial agreements are treated differently by Alabama court than prenuptial agreements.
