Birmingham Parents' Rights Attorney
With very few exception, the Alabama courts do not differentiate between the parental rights of unmarried parents versus the rights of married ones. Many unmarried parents do not understand their rights, which can create all types of misunderstandings and disputes between mother and father.
If you are the parent of a child and were never married to the other parent, it is important that any disputes be handled by an experienced lawyer who knows the law and can help you understand your rights. At the law firm of Gina H. McDonald & Associates, we represent mothers and fathers in a variety of legal issues.
Representing Unmarried Parents Throughout Alabama
In many Alabama counties, disputes between parents are handled through juvenile or family court. In different counties, however, local practices can vary greatly. In some cases, the court simply has a different name. In others, the cases are handled by a completely separate court. We understand the local practices in each county and can help you navigate these often confusing cases.
We have experience handling all types of issues for unmarried parents, including:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Support for special needs children
- Contempt and enforcement
- Fathers' rights
