Family law is a broad practice area that covers pretty much any matter that involves relationships in a family. At Leigh Daniel Family Law, we focus our practice on the following family law services:

Child Custody

One of the toughest family law matters we deal with is child custody disputes. However, we are here to help you fight for your rights and for what’s in the best interest of your children. Our attorneys can help you work through how you will share time with your children, as well as how you and the other parent will handle major decisions such as schooling and health care.

Child Support

Every parent we work with wants the best for their children, and child support is intended to ensure your children’s needs are always met. Alabama uses a standard formula to determine what child support payments should be. However, our experienced legal team will help you review your family’s finances to make sure you have all the information to make a correct calculation.

Although the issue of alimony, or “spousal support,” does not factor into every divorce, it is a matter that our attorneys deal with frequently. Particularly if you and your spouse have been married a long time, alimony may be considered to help one spouse maintain the standard of living that was upheld during the marriage.
