ALABAMA DIVORCE MODIFICATION
Sometimes once a divorce is over with, it needs to be modified as with
life, things can change and the terms of a divorce can need to change to reflect those changes. At The Rose Law Firm,
we understand that a Divorce Modification can be just as stressful as the original divorce. If you feel that you might
need a divorce modification, feel free to contact us. We will evaluate your case and give you our honest straightforward
opinion about your options. Whether you need to modify the terms of child custody, child support, or alimony, we are
here for you.
An annulment treats the marriage as if it never happened; however,
unlike a divorce, there are certain criteria that must be met in order to seek an annulment. Some of the factors in
determining whether you can seek an annulment are fraud, misrepresentation prior to the marriage, refusal
or inability to consumate the marriage, and/or concealment of an addiction to name a few.Some people believe that annulments
will be available only if they have been married for a short time; however, the duration of a marriage is not a factor
in the determination of whether an annulment is available Even if you have been married for a while, you may still
be eligible for an annulment if even one of the numerous elements for an annulment is met. If you feel you
might be eligible for an annulment, call The Rose Law Firm today for your free consultation to discuss your options.
An Alabama Child Custody case is one of the
most difficult cases due to the very nature of the case. At The Rose Law Firm, we understand the stress associated with
this type of case. We also know the law and the steps that must be taken. Don't trust your Alabama Child Custody

process. As an Alabama Child Support attorney, our firm can assist you through the entire process from documentation

At The Rose Law Firm, we have handled numerous adoptions
and understand how confusing an adoption can be. An adoption requires a large amount of paperwork as well as an attorney
that knows exactly what to file to get the process completed. Don't waste time hiring an attorney who is not familiar
with the process of adoptions as this will just make the process longer and more frustrating. Call today
(205) 323-1124 or email me to discuss your adoption options and let me help you cut through the red tape.
ALIMONY AND SPOUSAL SUPPORT
Spousal support or alimony is often awarded in cases where one
spouse has put his or her education or career on hold in order to raise the parties' children while the other climbed
the career ladder and achieved a higher income. It is used to keep the spouse living the lifestyle they had been prior to
going through a divorce. The amount and duration of alimony depends on several factors, including:
- The length of the marriage;
- The age and the health of
- The ability of each spouse to be self-supporting;
- The cause of the breakdown of the marriage;
- The income
of the primary breadwinner; and
- Standard of living during the marriage.
If you have questions about alimony or spousal support, feel free to call us 24 hours a day/ 7 days
a week or email to set up your free no obligation consultation.
It is a common misconception that only
the wealthy need a prenuptial agreement. There are, however, many other circumstances that call for an agreement in
writing prior to a marriage. If you have children prior to the marriage, expect to acquire money or proprty in the near
future, have a future successful business, own real estate, or are expecting any kind of financial windfall, you could benefit
from a prenuptial agreement. With the protection of a prenuptial agreement, you can control where your property
goes and avoid having a judge or court determine how your property may be separated or diivided. Obtaining a prenuptial
agreement does not mean that you are contemplating divorce. It merely means that you are being smart about your future.
Call or email us today to discuss your options.
A lot of people don't like thinking about making
a will; however, if you have family or friends that you want to be taken care of after your death, it is a necessary thought.
When you spend your life thinking about work and your family, it can be tough to properly plan for your wishes after
death. If you don't take the time to make a will, your family will be forced to deal with a messy and lengthier
probate process. The amount of your assets is not relevant. If you have a smaller estate, you have all the more
reason to protect it properly for your heirs. If you own a home, life insurance, stocks, savings accounts, retirement
funds, and any other kind of property, you need a will. At The Rose Law Firm we can help you put your
wishes in writing so that the state doesn't have a chance to decide what you would have wanted. You worked too hard
during your life to leave it in their hands. Have us prepare your will today and take control of the things that are
most important to you. Call or email us today to have your will prepared by an experienced Birmingham Lawyer!
