Montgomery, Alabama, Divorce, and Family Law Attorney

If you are facing divorce and its accompanying issues of spousal maintenance/alimony, child support, child custody, and visitation, it is imperative to have a clear understanding of your rights. In these difficult times a knowledgeable family law attorney can help.

Facing Divorce? Know Your Rights.

I am Alabama divorce lawyer Scott Johnson and in all divorce cases, it is my primary objective to keep my clients fully informed so that there is no room for miscommunication or misunderstanding. It is also my objective to perform each step of the legal process properly to keep the case from becoming needlessly expensive.

I am readily able to handle the following family law matters:

  • Contested / uncontested divorce
  • Relating to military personnel
  • Property distribution
  • Alimony / spousal support
  • Modifications of alimony / spousal support
  • Child custody / support
  • Modifications of child custody / support
  • Paternity issues (acknowledgement of paternity; DNA testing)
  • Adoption (stepparent adoption; grandparent adoption, termination of parental rights)

Matters relating to the custody of children may originate in juvenile court or family court depending upon the facts of the case. In juvenile cases, a family law attorney must be aware of the regulations of the Department of Human Resources (DHR) and have a clear understanding of how they conduct home studies, what they consider to be relative resources, and how they determine the process of reunification as opposed to termination of parental rights. The informed family law lawyer should be able to work with DHR case workers, and the guardian ad litem appointed to the case, while also having a good relationship with each of the juvenile court judges. Lastly, the lawyer should know what constitutes best efforts by the DHR case worker and fully comprehend the proper appellate procedure in the juvenile court, which differs from the family court.

Please note I have extensive experience in all family law matters, including handling divorce cases for military personnel stationed at Maxwell Air Force Base and Gunter Field Annex, among others. Consequently, I know how to deal with the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS), understand the protection afforded by the Soldiers' and Sailors' Relief Act, know what constitutes the State of Record, and comprehend the different legal rules of military divorce. Please contact me to schedule a free consultation.

Is mediation an option? Can my spouse just take the children? Is my child support calculation correct? How do we resolve extraordinary expenses for the special needs of the child? To have your important questions answered and to avoid being taken advantage of as you face divorce in Alabama, please contact me, Alabama family law attorney Scott Johnson.
