Family law is a broad term used to refer to the many statutory laws and previous court decisions that affect families legally. Family law can be thought of as an umbrella under which various legal actions are executed, such as those listed and described below.
Divorce is the most common legal action affecting families. While divorce must legally separate and divide a family and its assets, divorce does not need to destroy the emotional bonds amongst the family members, nor wipe out the family’s lifetime savings.
In fact, at the Wooten Law Firm, they believe it should not. Divorce can be contested (often called litigated divorce) or uncontested. Uncontested divorce proceedings are usually handled through mediation processes, such as collaborative divorce.
Child custody and visitation are perhaps the most important areas of family law, because these legal issues affect the children. The Wooten Law Firm addresses the three forms of custody that courts order: temporary custody, physical custody, and legal custody; as well as the initial court order, enforcement of a court order, and modification to change a court order.
Child support and alimony payments are usually ordered by a court in the final marital agreement. Under Alabama law, every child has a basic right to receive support, and every parent has an obligation to pay support. A temporary child support order is requested when parents separate to divorce. A final child support order is entered by the court in the final marital agreement. Thereafter, child support is enforceable as a post divorce legal action.
