Frequently Ask Questions
Do I Need a Family Law Attorney?
Having a lawyer represent you in a child custody or divorce case is not a requirement. However, you should know that if you don’t know the general rules and deadlines set up for your situation, the odds can end up stacked against you. Working with a lawyer can make a big difference not just in a trial but simply in preparing and filing your case.
How long does a divorce take?
The first step in a divorce is getting the opposing party served. Once the party is served, they then have thirty days to answer the complaint. If your divorce is not agreed upon from the start, it can take some time to navigate the possibility of settlement and inevitably trial. There is no standard answer for how long a divorce will take as each divorce is different. If terms are agreed upon, your divorce could be finished in a matter of a few months. If there are highly disputed issues, those two months could turn into a year or longer.
Do my children pick where they want to live?
While your children’s input will be considered, generally, the children do not decide where they will live or who will take care of them. Alabama courts are dedicated to basing parenting time on what is best for the child. If your child is mature enough to voice their preference, it can be presented in court. You’ll want to speak to your family law attorney about this before appearing before a judge.
Who determines spousal support?
Spousal support in Alabama ultimately comes down to a few important factors, including property owned by each party, the parties salary, the bank accounts of each party, the financial responsibilities of each party, how long the marriage has lasted, and more. Once the judge has taken these factors into consideration, they will determine if spousal support will be awarded. Spousal support is a complex issue that is nearly impossible to understand without the help of a seasoned family law lawyer.
What is mediation?
Mediation is a term for the process that involves both spouses and their lawyers sitting down with an unrelated third party in hopes of resolving their disputes without needing to go to court. Mediation generally lasts about one day, in which the neutral mediator helps both sides to come together and reach an agreement.
How much does a divorce cost?
It’s hard to predict what a divorce will cost. Every case is different, and there are too many factors that will ultimately affect the price, such as how contentious the divorce is, how large and complicated the estate is, and if children are involved. Depending on your needs, your divorce lawyer at The Rose Law Firm LLC will be happy to find ways to reduce the price in your divorce case.
Can a Lawyer Help Me with a Prenuptial Agreement?
When most of us hear the term “prenup,” we think of a rich couple in TV shows and films. This is by no means the standard. Marriage is one of the most emotional experiences a person will ever have, but when it comes to partnering with a person in every way, finances are no different. At the end of the day, you’re sharing your assets and your money with another person, but when that relationship changes, you may want the security of knowing your property and assets will be divided fairly in the event of a split.
That said, only a small fraction of couples sign a prenuptial agreement. Most people go into marriage confident it won’t fall apart. Statistically speaking, nearly half of all marriages in America end in divorce. It’s critical to think with a clear heart and not just your heart when it comes to planning your future. The prenuptial agreement lawyers at The Rose Law Firm LLC can help you put together a marriage agreement that lets each partner know it’s being done out of love and respect for each other.
