We have more than 35 years of experience representing clients throughout Montgomery, Alabama, and the surrounding communities in family law matters, including:
- Divorce: We offer our clients the representation they need in civil and military divorce. We work with clients to resolve custody, support and property division matters.
- High net worth divorce: We adeptly handle complicated, high net worth divorce. We bring in business valuation experts and other professionals whenever necessary to obtain a concise picture of the accurate value of property and assets.
- Child custody: Sometimes custody cases are filed involving parents who have never been married to each other. We are fully prepared to handle custody issues in such cases.
- Alimony and spousal support: When a marriage is over, one spouse may need alimony for continuing support, to maintain a standard of living, or in order to rehabilitate. We work with clients to make sure that the needs of the party requesting alimony and all relevant income is considered in the calculated amount.
- Paternity: Blood tests and DNA tests can be used to determine a child's father. If paternity is proven, fathers can receive parenting rights, including visitation and child support.
- Post-minority support: Typically, child support is only paid to a child while they are a minor; ending when the child turns 19. However, there are circumstances when it is appropriate to receive support after that. In qualifying cases we may be able to help clients receive support for college expenses and for those who are mentally or physically disabled.
- Adoption: We represent clients in stepparent adoptions. We contact the biological parent to terminate parenting rights, and help the new parents with all paperwork and filing.
- Visitation: Visitation — or access, as it is sometimes called — can be granted to a non-custodial parent following a divorce or custody hearing. We help our clients receive the parenting time they deserve.
- Domestic violence and restraining orders: We represent clients who are involved in domestic violence matters which result in restraining orders. We offer our clients the legal protection they need throughout the process.
- Mediation: Whether our client desires to work toward a mediated settlement of a family law problem, or the court orders the parties to mediate, we have the knowledge and experience to guide our clients through the process. In some cases, mediation can result in a more satisfactory resolution of a problem than court action alone.
