Child Custody And Visitation Lawyer Serving Mobile And Baldwin Counties

Children are often the ones most impacted by divorce or the end of a nonmarital relationship. If you have a child under age 19 and you are ending a relationship, it is generally beneficial if you and the child's other parent can agree to custody and visitation terms without litigating. If you are unable to reach an agreement, the court will decide based on what it deems to be in the child's best interests.

At the law office of Barry A. Friedman & Associates, P.C., we help individuals resolve child custody and visitation issues through negotiation and litigation. We know how important your relationship with your child is, and we are committed to helping you keep it that way.

A new job, remarriage or other life change — in your life or your child's life — may necessitate changes to existing court orders regarding custody, visitation or child support. We can help you with modifications or defend against a requested change.

We Protect Your Rights At Every Step Of The Process

Courts can determine temporary custody while parents complete a divorce or work through other family law issues. A temporary custody order remains in effect until the other proceedings are complete. Permanent legal and physical custody orders will be established as part of the process.

Attorney Joshua D. Friedman is both a certified mediator and an experienced litigator. Whether you and your child's other parent can reach an agreement without going to court, or you expect a more contentious resolution to custody and visitation issues, Joshua has the experience and the skill set necessary to handle your case.

Alabama courts consider a number of factors when determining custody issues. These include:

  • The emotional, social, moral, material and educational needs of the child
  • The desire and capacity to encourage a strong relationship between the child and the other parent
  • The stability of the home environments offered by each parent
  • The relationship between the child and each parent
  • The preference of each child, if the child is of sufficient age and maturity
