Prenuptial Agreements Hampered by Long Distance Love

In past years, most couples who chose to marry were comprised of a man and women in their early twenties. Today, trying to define the average couple who plans to marry is nearly impossible. From same-sex couples to baby boomers planning to marry for the second or third time, the landscape surrounding the institution of marriage varies greatly. Many couples who chose to marry today are also older and, as such, tend to bring more assets to a marriage, making the need for a prenuptial agreement that much more important.

In addition to being older and having more assets, many couples have also been courting long-distance. When trying to draw up a prenuptial agreement, couples who live in separate states are often faced with a difficult and expensive task.

When trying to secure a prenuptial agreement, one couple who live in separate states were forced to retain five attorneys to sort out and coordinate everything. The problem is that state laws pertaining to the drafting and handling of prenuptial agreements vary greatly. Because of this, it's often difficult and expensive for individuals who live in separate states to protect their assets or property.

Growing concern over the problems associated with drafting prenuptial agreements between residents of separate states has lead to a legal panel deciding on new uniform rules. The panel hopes the new rules will help ensure states, including Texas, are all on the same page when it comes to rules and laws pertaining to prenuptial agreements.

Prenuptial agreements are an important legal contract that protects the financial livelihood of an individual. Oftentimes the process of writing up a prenuptial agreement is already wrought with some conflict and emotion. It's important, therefore, that the process for drafting prenuptial agreements be as easy and seamless as possible.

One of the best decisions I have ever made was to hire Ms. Cheryl Alsandor. I am very please and grateful, she is by far the most knowledgeable and efficient attorney i have ever dealt with. Her knowledge to destroy an opponent in a court room is incredible. Her ability to catch them in lies and ask the questions to make them look like the idiots they are is key. If you have a serious court issue for family or custody, you need to hire Ms. Alsandor. She knows the law and can see through the opponents lies and intentioal missleading actions. The Judges are sometimes is blinded by the lies of the other side if you dont have a excellent attorney to clear the path for the judge. Ms. Alsandor will clear the path and let the judge see the truth and you will be victorious. Follow your gut and trust Ms. Alsandor. You will be glad you did, believe me. D.

Mrs. Alsandor is an excellent attorney; but most of she is a very empathetic person. This is what separated her from the other attorneys I consulted before hiring her. She helped me during one of the most diffcult times of my life. I was divorcing my wife and fighting for primary custody of my 10 year old son. I actually did not think I would be granted custody being that I am a man and the court systems usually favorite women as being the primary custodian. However after I consulted with Mrs. Alsandor she basically assured me she would do everything legally possible to assure that I was granted custody. Mrs. Alsandor was very understanding, kind and very compassionate. I felt as if she had taken my case personally and this was her fight as well. She responded to my many phone calls and emails; and there were a lot(because of my nerves) Her prices were very reasonable for the extraordinary work that she does. I recently recommend her to one of my co-workers and he noticed the very same qualities. Mrs. Alsandor was God sent. I am happy to report I did win primary custody of my son. We are doing well and we are very happy all thanks to Mrs. Alsandor. Nelson D.

My case was handled well, with professionalism and within a reasonable time frame. I would recommend Attorney Alsandor to anyone because she is straight forward and stayed within the guidelines of the law. I did not have to worry about winning my case because she had it under control. I especially like that I did not have to do a lot of work like traveling to her office and missing meetings at my office because we communicated via email, where I could sign the documents and scan and send it. Lastly, her prices where affordable and I was able to easily pay online, which again saved me time. Steven
