Birmingham Child Custody Attorney
After a divorce, either spouse may choose to relocate to another state. These moves can become problematic, however, if the spouses have children together. Dealing with issues in the areas of child custody, child support and spousal support can become considerably more complex when the spouses live in two different states.
At the law firm of Gina H. McDonald & Associates, we represent clients throughout central Alabama in a broad range of interstate custody and support issues. Our lawyers have extensive experience in these matters. Our lawyers have the skill and the commitment to pursue the most favorable possible result in your case.
Alabama Interstate Child Custody Issues
The primary law that governs custody matters involving parents who live in two different states is the Alabama Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA). Among other things, the law includes provisions for determining which state's court has jurisdiction to rule on custody issues. Our attorneys have a complete understanding of the UCCJEA. Whether you have moved to Alabama and need help establishing or modifying a custody order here, or you are a parent whose child has been relocated to another state by your former spouse, we are ready to help you.
Alabama Interstate Child and Spousal Support Issues
The Alabama Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA) deals with issues involving child and spousal support where either spouse has moved away from the state where the order originated. Our attorneys have the knowledge and the experience to protect your interests in such issues as enforcement and modification. No matter what side of the matter you are on, you can rely on us to pursue every available option in an effort to secure a positive result on your behalf.
