Wills, Trusts & Estate Planning 

  

Did you know that a well organized estate plan is one of the best gifts you can give to your loved ones? An organized estate plan can protect your estate from unnecessary taxation as well as those stressful unnecessary family disputes. An estate plan provides for the orderly distribution of your estate, and a long list of financial resource for your loved ones. If you are interested or in need of an estate plan call one of the experienced attorneys at The Kelly Law Firm, P.C. 


Divorce 


Did you enter into marriage hoping that it would last a lifetime, but has failed due to unforeseen circumstances? Our attorneys know the difficulty of splitting up assets, child custody, and other issues that may arise.  Don't hesitate to contact one of our experienced attorneys at The Kelly Law Firm, P.C., for a consultation. 


In the State of Alabama, there are several ways to end a marriage including no-fault (no wrongdoing by any party), or fault based (one party filed a complaint against the other party) grounds.


No-Fault based divorces are the most common divorces filed in Alabama.  However, it is very hard to prove the wrongdoing of the other party.  The only two grounds that are considered are  incompatibility and irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. 


Fault-Based grounds include: adultery, one party was incapacitated at marriage, voluntary abandonment from bed and board, one party is imprisoned in a penitentiary, commitment of a crime against nature, addiction to drugs or habitual drunkenness, complete incompatibility of temperament, one party is confined in a mental hospital for a period of five years, irretrievable breakdown of marriage, the wife was pregnant at the time of marriage without his knowledge or agency, actual violence on his or her person, and when the wife has lived separate and apart from bed an board of the husband of two years without support from the husband.
