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.
