Whether you believe your divorce will be easy or difficult, there will definitely be many emotions involved. In many cases, it can be challenging to separate the emotions from the legal issues at hand that require settlement. This is when it is beneficial to enlist the help of an experienced attorney.
At the Baldwin County office of Mitzi G. Johnson-Theodoro L.L.C., I pride myself on providing my family law clients with tailored divorce representation that is designed to suit their specific needs and goals, for the near future and in the long term. It is important to me that we work together to ensure all issues are addressed and additional stress is minimized.
Issues Involved In Divorce
As a dedicated divorce lawyer, I confidently handle all related matters that arise throughout the divorce process, including:
- Spousal maintenance: In Alabama, what used to be referred to as “alimony” or “spousal support” is now called spousal maintenance or just “maintenance.” The amount is based on one party’s ability to pay and the other party’s demonstration of their need for support.
- Property division: Dividing property may sound simple but can become complex when you are dealing with assets such as homes, real property, businesses, retirement assets, 401(k)s, IRAs, bank accounts, QDROs and more.
- Child custody: While custody is typically handled in a way that protects the children’s best interests, it is important that the interests of my clients are protected and considered as well.
- Child support: There are state-set guidelines that dictate how much parents are to pay for child support to the other parent. There can be deviations to this standard calculation but those are at the court’s discretion.
In addition, I can assist with post-divorce issues if they arise after the initial divorce proceedings have been completed and issued orders need modification or enforcement.
