IN NEED OF A FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY? WE OFFER THE FOLLOWING FAMILY LAW SERVICES
Family law is a broad practice area that covers pretty much any matter that involves relationships in a family. At Lamere LawOffice, we focus our practice on the following family law services:
Divorce in Alabama
We understand how stressful divorce proceedings can be, whether you and your spouse have agreed upon the details or are still trying to hash things out. This is a huge change in your life, and our compassionate attorneys are prepared to act as both emotional supports and strong advocates for your rights during this trying time.
Attorneys help clients push through many types of contested divorce, whether you can’t find your spouse or can’t get him or her to sign the paperwork. We help clients who can agree that divorce is necessary but do not agree on important issues such as division of assets and child custody.
Even if you and your spouse agree on how you want to handle all aspects of your divorce, you should still consult with a knowledgeable attorney to ensure your rights are being protected. Our experienced divorce attorneys will review any agreements you’ve discussed to make sure you are making good decisions that aren’t clouded by emotions.
For members of the military and their spouses, the divorce process is more complicated than it is for civilians. Our Huntsville military divorce lawyers understand how military regulations affect divorces in Alabama, and we can help with proceedings even if one spouse is overseas.
Although the issue of alimony, or “spousal support,” does not factor into every divorce, it is a matter that our attorneys deal with frequently. Particularly if you and your spouse have been married a long time, alimony may be considered to help one spouse maintain the standard of living that was upheld during the marriage.
Every parent wants the best for their children, and child support is intended to ensure your children’s needs are always met. Alabama uses a standard formula to determine what child support payments should be. However, our experienced legal team will help you review your family’s finances to make sure you have all the information to make a correct calculation.
One of the toughest family law matters we deal with is child custody disputes. We are here to help you fight for your rights and for what’s in the best interest of your children. Attorneys can help you work through how you will share time with your children, as well as how you and the other parent will handle major decisions such as schooling and health care.
Visitations Rights of Fathers
Many fathers do not realize they have the absolute right to be involved and have regular contact with their child. Most fathers just “accept” what the mother tells them or even someone else, if the custodian of their child is someone other than the mother. If you are the father of a minor child and you are not married to the mother, we can help you in getting visitation rights with your child, so you don’t just have to “accept” what is said.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED IN A MEETING WITH OUR ATTORNEYS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY LAW CASES
When you meet with our skilled legal team to discuss family law services, it is helpful to be as prepared as possible. We suggest you bring any relevant paperwork that will allow us to assess your case more efficiently and map out a plan of action for moving forward.
In preparing for a meeting with a family lawyer about your case, you should try to compile:
- A list of any questions you may have
- A summary of your family law caseAny background related to your separation, such as how custody has been handled and who moved out of the home
- Tax returns, salary information, and paystubs
- Birth certificates and social security cards for your children
- A separation agreement (if you have one)
- Documents from any past legal proceedings
- A prenuptial agreement (if you have one)
- Any evidence of cheating, domestic abuse, drug addiction, or mental illness
