It is common knowledge that many married couples choose, at some point, to dissolve their unions. In states across the nation, including Alabama, approximately 40-50 percent of marriages end in divorce. Most couples involved in such circumstances tend to hope for a peaceful settlement and amicable parting of ways.
In a recent advice column, a question was posed regarding certain issues that arise during divorce. The man asking the question had concerns about his impending divorce from his wife; namely, he wanted to know if alimony still existed in Alabama or elsewhere. Apparently, the man was divorcing after more than a decade of marriage and his soon-to-be former wife expressed her intent to request alimony payments from him.
A recent article discussed issues concerning contracts drawn up between engaged couples as opposed to those entered into after a marriage takes place. Alabama couples might wonder if a prenuptial agreement is better or worse than a post-nuptial contract. The article offered information on both of these legally binding documents.
