Domestic disputes can be emotionally devastating, especially when children are involved. When relations turn sour and divorce seems to be the only answer, you need a counselor you can trust.
A Skilled Advocate In Divorce, Child Custody, Child Support and Similar Matters The Law Office of Stephen H. Jones, a Birmingham Alabama divorce lawyer, has over two decades of experience in dealing with all kinds of divorce matters, including: Divorces: Uncontested divorces can be simple; they can also explode into the most rancorous battles a lawyer can witness. We are practiced negotiators, but we also relish defending your rights if things turn sour and the divorce is contested.
Child custody: Possibly the most emotionally fraught issue in divorce disputes, requiring negotiating skill and tact to bring about a resolution that best serves the interests of the child.
Child support disputes:
Child support increases or decreases are a crucial issue for the welfare of the child but potentially one of the most acrimonious; we are vigorous advocates for our clients' rights.
We will explore all support options, including alimony. Modification proceedings: A change of circumstances, such as income or employment, can lead to the need to modify the conditions of a divorce or separation decree, including child support modification or change of custody. Divorce is difficult regardless of whether or not the divorce is uncontested or contested. It is essential that you hire an attorney with whom you are completely comfortable, someone you can trust with your family, your finances, and your future. Sometimes one spouse will try to convince the other spouse that he or she does not need an attorney. This is not true; each party in a divorce proceeding needs to be represented. Sure, you could go forward without an attorney, but you will not have anyone looking out for your interests. This is not the time to represent yourself or be cavalier, even in an uncontested divorce. Once the documents are signed, it is difficult, if not impossible, to change the terms. Choosing the right attorney to help you through this transition is essential. The peace of mind you will have after consulting with and being represented by the right attorney is priceless. Is It Time to Consult a Divorce Lawyer?
