Huntsville Contested Divorce Lawyer
Madison Uncontested Divorce Lawyer
We understand that contested divorce is often highly emotional, involving hurt feelings and resentment. Divorce proceedings can especially be disturbing for children. At John R. Campbell, Attorney at Law, we explore alternatives to litigation – such as mediation and arbitration – to help avoid the consequences of trial.
However, Huntsville contested divorce attorney, John R. Campbell also understands that certain situations and client goals require court intervention. Our legal team will aggressively fight to protect your rights at trial when other options are not in your best interest.
For more than 20 years, we have provided comprehensive divorce representation for men and women throughout North Alabama. We understand the complex divorce codes governing alimony. We recommend to clients that they try to work out an alimony agreement with the other party. When that is not possible, we provide informed guidance to ensure you make appropriate decisions at every step of your case.
Alabama divorce codes do not guarantee alimony awards, and the court must consider a myriad of factors when deciding whether alimony is warranted, as well as which type to award. There are two types of alimony:
Periodic. The award is provided for a set amount of time — or for life. It is subject to termination upon remarriage of the receiving spouse.
Alimony in gross. The court may award a one-time lump sum payment.
Whether you are pursuing alimony or obligated to pay, we are dedicated to protecting your rights to ensure you receive a fair outcome.
Our dedicated legal team realizes that life doesn't stand still after divorce. If you or your ex-spouse can no longer comply with your divorce order, we can help you obtain a post-divorce modification.
The law allows individuals to file claims to change divorce orders if they experience a significant change in circumstances. The change has to affect your ability to comply with the court or affect the amount of time you spend with your children. Depending on your situation, you can pursue changes to:
- Child support
- Child custody
We have represented individuals pursuing modifications, as well as those opposed to a modification. We can evaluate your situation to determine the best course of action.
