Alabama family courts use standards to determine the amount of child support you are obligated to pay or are entitled to receive for the care of your children. The standards, as established by the state legislature, consider the income of each parent, the placement of the children and the number of children.

Child custody and visitation can either be addressed in a divorce or in a suit affecting the parent child relationship, which is a suit filed when the parties are not married but have a child(dren) in common or do not wish to divorce but need issues of custody, visitation and child support addressed in an order.

It is possible that the child support standards may or may not take into account your family’s unique needs and considerations. This is where the services of our office can truly help.
