WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Understand the factors that go into court decisions regarding child custody and child support and learn how to draft an effective divorce settlement agreement.
Alabama law has child custody and support guidelines, but a court can deviate from the guidelines under certain circumstances. In any child custody case, a court will consider joint custody but may award any form of custody which is determined to be in the best interest of the child. What factors do Alabama courts consider when making these determinations? It’s essential for attorneys representing a party in a child custody case to know what factors Alabama courts consider when deciding on these guidelines and permissible deviations.
Additionally, legal counsel must understand how the elements of a divorce settlement agreement can affect custody. What critical mistakes must you avoid as an attorney representing a party in a divorce when drafting an agreement?
