Prenuptial – Antenuptial Agreement

A Prenuptial Agreement is a contract entered into between two parties contemplating marriage which can dictate property rights in the event of a divorce.  Although these agreements can be utilized by individuals with little to no assets prior to marriage, they are most commonly used for individuals who have certain assets prior to the marriage that they would like to protect if the marriage ends.  Alabama courts commonly uphold these agreements as long as the parties disclose their financial assets, are not under duress or coercion at the time of signing and have had an opportunity to obtain separate legal advice.  Prenuptial Agreements can encompass many areas of assets including family businesses, inheritance, alimony, real property, financial accounts, personal property, etc.  The attorneys at Hodges Trial Lawyers are experienced in drafting and reviewing Prenuptial Agreements as well as litigating whether or not the agreement is enforceable during a divorce.
