Experienced Divorce Litigation and Negotiation | Because the complex issues addressed in a divorce proceeding affect the entire family, costly and protracted litigation is not always ideal. Most divorces settle without need for trial, but not every divorce can be settled amicably through negotiation or mediation. Leigh is experienced in both trial and negotiated settlements for pre- and post-divorce matters including contested and uncontested divorce, child custody and child support, equitable distribution of assets and liabilities, alimony and spousal support, preparation of property settlement agreements, preparation of prenuptial agreements, grandparents’ rights, parental alienation claims.
Often, divorce is the first encounter many people have with the court system. It can be an overwhelming and highly emotional experience. Having an experienced attorney to guide you through the process can alleviate some of the anxiety associated with the divorce process. Leigh has the experience you want and need to properly represent you when it comes to any family law matters. She is committed to helping her clients find a practical solution to their current legal problems through a negotiated settlement or at trial.
The goal in any divorce is the equitable distribution of assets and liabilities and, where applicable, a determination of child custody and support. Alabama law requires an equitable distribution of marital assets and liabilities, which is a fair, but not necessarily equal division.
