Child Custody in Alabama
When couples are divorcing, the issue of child custody must be resolved. Our Birmingham child custody lawyers work to find solutions that work for everyone and are in the child’s best interest. When making custody decisions, Alabama courts primarily focus on the best interests of the child. They consider a variety of factors when making this determination.
The court will consider factors that include:
- The child’s relationship with siblings
- The child’s relationship with each parent
- Maintaining consistency in family and community life
- Who is best able to meet the child’s physical, emotional, educational, and other needs
- Which parent is more likely to maintain a stable, nurturing relationship with the child
When parents are able to come to an agreement, it will generally be honored by the court. However, if custody is disputed and parents are unable to reach an agreement, the court will make the decision. We provide dedicated representation to our clients and work diligently to help them reach solutions that work for the family.
Resolving Custody Disputes
Custody disputes can be resolved in several ways, including negotiation, mediation, and going to court. We begin by meeting to discuss your situation, goals, answer your questions, and explain the legal process, so you know what to expect. You will receive constant communication with your attorney throughout the entire process.
