Montgomery, Alabama, Child Custody/Support Lawyer

In the midst of a divorce, child custody and child support tend to emerge as the most important issues to the parties involved. Whether you seek custody, wish to petition for a custody/support modification, or have questions about the Alabama child support guidelines, it is important to be fully informed.

If you seek my assistance, I will perform all the necessary steps to help resolve your child custody or child support matter both efficiently and effectively. Please contact me to schedule your free consultation.

From my Montgomery, Alabama office, I handle the following child custody and support issues:

  • Modifications of custody and support orders
  • Custody matters involving unmarried parents
  • Petitions for temporary custody (e.g. grandparent temporary custody)
  • Petitions for contempt (not paying support in contempt of court order)
  • Move-away / Relocation cases
  • Child support

A statute concerning relocation called the Alabama Parent-Child Relationship Protection Act is an important example of why family law clients need to be fully informed. This act supports the general proposition that a child needs both parents in their life, even after a divorce. Thus, if a parent with primary custody of a child is planning on moving from their current residence, they must provide the non-custodial parent with advance notice of the move. The non-relocating parent must object within 30 days after notice or the move is deemed to be approved. 

Child Support

Child support is calculated through the Alabama child support guidelines. In order to deviate from the amount awarded, there must be good reason shown for the departure upward or downward. If the child support award is to be modified at a later point, the petitioning party must demonstrate to the court that there has been a material change in circumstances.

Please contact me, Scott Johnson, Attorney at Law, to discuss your Alabama child support and child custody needs.
