Family law encompasses a wide range of issues. Whether you are considering adopting a child, you need to establish paternity, or you are the victim of abuse, a family law attorney can help you deal with the various legal steps that must be taken to protect you and your family.
It is hard to believe how much paperwork is required to complete an adoption. Families who are considering adoption should be working with a family law attorney who understands the process. There are numerous steps including interviews with friends, neighbors, and coworkers as well as home visits. We can help you understand the process and make sure there are no delays in the process because of erroneous paperwork.
The relationship between a father and child is important. However, when the parents were not married prior to birth, it is important to establish paternity. We can help you with the legitimation process in Alabama whether you are the mother or father of a child.
While divorce is never easy, it is important for both parties to be able to move forward. We can help you with both contested and uncontested divorce proceedings. We will take whatever time is necessary to ensure we understand all issues and help you determine the best way forward. We will fairly represent your interests in a divorce proceeding and make sure the court understands your position.
Child Custody, Visitation, & Support
Typically, one of the most difficult aspects of divorce is dealing with each parent’s rights and obligations to their children. Chances are, both parents have very h2 feelings about custody. Ideally, shared legal custody is the best option since this allows both parents to be involved in major decisions including education, healthcare, and religious upbringing.
Once custody issues are put aside, the parents will need to work out an acceptable visitation schedule to ensure the children are able to maintain a h2, loving relationship with both parents. State guidelines are in place to ensure children are financially secure, regardless of whether their parents are living together. In all cases, both parents are responsible for the financial well-being of their children.
Domestic Violence & Protection from Abuse
If you are being victimized by an intimate partner, family member, or former spouse, we can help you obtain a protective order in Alabama courts. Domestic violence is serious, and we will help you do everything possible to ensure your safety and the safety of your children.
Post-Divorce Modification and Enforcement
In some cases, after a divorce, there is a need to modify child support payments, spousal support payments, or visitation schedules. There may also be a need to enforce court orders which are being ignored. When you need to ask the court to intervene because your former spouse is not complying with court-ordered support payments, or you need additional support monies, we may be able to help.
