Alabama Prenuptial Agreement Case Law

Posted by Steven D. Eversole | Oct 07, 2007 | 0 Comments

The Alabama Court of Civil Appeals recently held that prenuptial agreements signed the day before a wedding are valid, even though the wife did not read the entire document.   Michael Sherman, a great divorce lawyer down in Mobile, Alabama recently posted an informative blog post on the recent Alabama prenuptial agreement precedent.  Michael gives some excellent advice on what not do when signing an Alabama prenuptial agreement and I wholeheartedly agree with each point:

  • Do not sign a prenuptial agreement without hiring an attorney
  • And do not wait until the last minute

Failing to follow either point will likely result in waiving significant legal rights.
