    I conferred with Mr. Lusk in on behalf of my daughter. She had a custody trial in a few days, she had her own attorney and she had rec’d a settlement offer (to which she made a counter offer). I was hoping to have the offers reviewed and hi...

    Though my situation was probably not near as severe as some of the others, I did need really good representation to protects my assets and my reputation. Being a man in Alabama I was concerned how fairly i would be treated so I opted for t...

    Mr. Lusk and I worked on a multi-million dollar deal together, and his legal expertise in the process was invaluable. Fortunately, I personally have never needed his services for domestic relations matters, but for anyone in need of legal r...

    I highly recommend hiring Lusk & Lusk as a strategic investment to secure the future of your family. This firm is not a "bargain basement" (i.e. pay a fee, get some papers drawn up). Jonathan Lusk provides powerful, comprehensive legal rep...

Alabama Prenuptial Agreements Attorneys

Lusk & Lusk, Attorneys at Law works with couples who wish to establish the terms of a settlement agreement either before or after they are married — in the event that they later decide to divorce or legally separate. While these kinds of agreements are often frowned upon by society, working out a prenuptial (premarital) agreement before marriage or a post-nuptial agreement after the fact can be very practical.

Working out the terms of a potential settlement in advance — especially if your joint and separate assets are complex and/or vast — allows you and your spouse or fiancé to decide for yourselves how you wish your assets and debts to be divided.

Even though you are working on your agreement as a couple, it is important that each of you has his or her own family law attorney to represent you and your interests while protecting your rights. You will also want to make sure that your agreement with your fiancé or spouse is drafted correctly in the event that you do get divorced or become legally separated. Premarital and post-nuptial agreements are legal contracts that are enforceable by law and can prove challenging to contest later.

Terms of a prenuptial agreement
A prenuptial agreement addresses in specific terms many matters, including the following:

  • Who gets what assets in the event that you decide to end your legal union
  • How finances and assets will be handled during the marriage
  • Spousal support terms
  • Any business ownership issues
  • What to do with your estate in the event that one of you dies
  • The handling of gifts, inheritances or trusts
  • Benefits and disability and insurance
    coverage
  • Terms of a post-nuptial agreement

Married couples who have decided to create post-nuptial agreements are considered fiduciaries of each other, and they are therefore required by law to provide each other with full disclosure of all information and issues pertaining to the drafting of the post-nuptial agreement. The terms that can be settled by a post-nuptial agreement are similar to the ones included in a prenuptial agreement.

Challenging and enforcing prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements
In the event that you have signed a prenuptial or a post-nuptial agreement that you now wish to challenge because your spouse did not disclose all of his or her assets or debts, you were unfairly pressured into signing the agreement, or you were deceived into signing the contract, Lusk & Lusk, Attorneys at Law will help you challenge the terms of a defective prenuptial or post-nuptial agreement and, if necessary, litigate your matter in court.

They also represent clients who wish to enforce the terms of a prenuptial or post-nuptial agreement that a soon-to-be ex-husband or ex-wife may now wish to contest.
