I Will Skillfully Guide You Through The Child Custody Process
Divorce is difficult for everyone involved, but children are uniquely affected by it. They end up having two distinct households, and it can be difficult for parents to retain a strong relationship when they are no longer living in the same home.
Once your divorce is final, you need to be sure that your children are taken care of and that you still will have a positive influence on their upbringing. As an Alabama child custody attorney with over 25 years of experience, I give my clients information, options and clarity when resolving these complex issues.
Every case is handled directly by me to ensure that my clients are reaching conclusions that address their unique needs. I firmly believe that your family can be stronger when your divorce is final, and I can help you achieve that goal through knowledgeable family law representation.

Visitation Should Be Fair To Each Parent And Beneficial For The Child
Child custody no longer carries the stigma of winning or losing. Courts are increasingly concerned with achieving more cooperative parenting time agreements such as joint custody and giving children a more complete upbringing where both parents are involved.
This, of course, hinges on what is in the best interest of the child, but how is “best interest” defined? Child custody and visitation rulings take a wide range of factors into consideration, including:
- Age and gender of the child
- The relationship between the child and each parent
- Each parent’s willingness to foster a good relationship between the child and a noncustodial parent
- The connection that a child has to his or her community or school
- Access to pertinent educational needs or health care considerations
- Other extenuating circumstances that may affect a child’s welfare
No two families are the same, which is why any custody agreements you make should be customized to your individual needs. As a lawyer, I strive to give my clients a thorough understanding of the options available and what decisions are most likely to help them overcome divorce and custody issues effectively and positively.
