Huntsville Family Lawyers Guide Clients Through Difficult Times

North Alabama attorneys provide skillful guidance for domestic matters

When a family law situation arises, the decisions you make could have a significant effect on your long-term happiness and well-being. An experienced attorney can give you the information you need to protect yourself and effectively assert your rights during negotiations and litigation. At Amy A. Slayden Family Law P.C. in Huntsville, Alabama, we are strong advocates who focus on meeting our clients’ objectives in cases involving divorce, child custody, legal separation and related matters. Our accomplished lawyers won’t let you be bullied or misled into a decision that hurts you down the road. Rather, we clearly outline your options and press for an outcome that works for you in the short and long terms.

Proven divorce litigators handle alimony, property and parenting concerns

With 30 years of combined experience, our firm has the ability and background to provide exceptional legal guidance, resolve tough disputes and fight aggressively at trial when necessary. We handle a wide array of domestic legal matters, such as:

  • Divorce — When a married couple no longer wishes to remain together, our attorneys deliver clear, sound guidance on every aspect of Alabama divorce. For those who don’t want to dissolve their marriage but choose to live apart, we also assist with legal separation matters.
  • Child support — Disagreements about the creation, enforcement and revision of child support orders can harm everyone involved. No matter what specific issues exist, we strive to get the proper information before the court so that sons and daughters have the financial support they’re entitled to.
  • Child custody and visitation — Establishing appropriate child custody and visitation terms requires a comprehensive evaluation of various factors that affect young people. In these cases, our firm takes great care to find solutions that foster a healthy environment for children and parents.
  • Adoption — Bringing a child into your home should be a joyful time, but dealing with regulations and agency rules can be a serious burden. From start to finish, we explain the legal requirements and guide you through the evaluations that must occur before you gain legal parenthood.
  • Property division — Alabama divorce law divides marital property based on the principle of equitable distribution. This means that courts decide what is fair after reviewing various aspects of the marriage. There’s no rule that requires an even split, so it’s important to have a qualified advocate on your side.
  • Mediation — Because of the existing and ongoing relationships between the parties, mediation before a neutral third party can be an effective method of resolving divorce terms and other family law issues. In some instances, this is a step that must be taken before litigating a divorce.
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements — If you are about to get married or recently have been wed, a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can help both spouses safeguard their assets. Whether you have extensive holdings or just want the security of knowing what will happen if the marriage doesn’t work out, we offer knowledgeable guidance.

Don’t hesitate to obtain help from a qualified North Alabama family lawyer. We’ll deliver counsel and advocacy that is tailored to your values and goals.

Client Reviews
  • "My family worked with Sarah Meigs an Attorney with Amy Slayden Family Law, we were extremely happy with Sarah's experience and knowledge. She helped us get a custody battle dismissed and communicated with us over weekend and evenings, and did what it took to get the job done. We are extremely grateful to her and I would recommend her service to anyone needing help."  -Posted by Frank

  • "I hired Amy to represent me in a contested divorce with custody. She was able to argue my case in court in front of a female judge and legally outmaneuver my wife's lawyer. No shenanigans, no stunts, just good, solid legal execution. My wife attempted to bring me in for contempt of court, again Amy stepped in and protected my interests. Hire her again without a second thought. If you're a father trying to get a fare shake in the Alabama courts, you can do no better than Amy."  -Posted by anonymous

  • "My family can never thank Amy enough for what she has done for us over the years. She has followed our case and been with us every step of the way. Child custody cases are always emotional, but Amy kept my son safe and we can never thank her enough for that. She always gave us straight forward advice, told us the good or the bad, and was there for us every step of the way. She was compassionate and understanding with us and especially with our son. I have never seen another lawyer so confident and prepared in a court room. She is absolutely amazing. We owe her so much and would highly recommend her to anyone dealing with child custody issues."  -Posted by Vergenia

  • "Amy was able to, very quickly, after 6 years, previous attorneys, mishandled court fileings, and being the man who's case, "slipped through the cracks" , allow me to get a proper visitation order filed in court. She was tough, fair and very well prepared for my case. Thanks again Amy."  -Posted by anonymous

  • "I received a referral to Amy Slayden from an elected official who had recently become a friend. I hired her for post divorce litigation after a non-so-great divorce settlement filed with another attorney in town several years prior. I wished I had hired her for my initial divorce! I have retained her now four times for post divorce litigation. She is tough, smart, and cares about her clients. My ex-husband keeps changing attorneys to try to match her level of expertise, but thus far has not come close. "  -Posted by Christa
