Compassionate Alabama Family Lawyer Helps with Divorce and Parenting Matters
Attentive law firm represents divorcing spouses and parents in the Birmingham area
Whether you are experiencing the pain of marital conflict, anticipating the joys of adoption, or facing another legal issue close to home, Joseph C. Somma, PC can listen to your needs, understand your concerns and seek solutions to your legal problems. I am well-versed in matters of Alabama family law, representing individuals and families in the Birmingham area and throughout Alabama. My firm provides trusted guidance as you navigate divorce, child custody and support, property division, and other family law matters as well as assisting with marital agreements.
Reliable Alabama attorney advocates for the best interests of children
To ensure a secure future for your children after a divorce, Joseph C. Somma, PC provides caring legal counsel and advocacy. I can help you with matters including:
- Child support — I will seek an arrangement in which you receive or pay an equitable amount of the financial support required to raise your child in a happy and healthy environment.
- Child custody and visitation — I advocate for parenting time to be divided in a way that grants a child stability and safety and preserves your parental bond. I assert clients’ rights to make decisions about how their children are raised.
- Adoption — Adopting a child is a joyful occasion. When something goes wrong, there is a chance of substantial heartache. I handle the legalities of adoption so you can concentrate on preparing for your child’s homecoming.
- Juvenile delinquency — If your child gets in trouble with the law, their future and your parenting rights may come under threat. When authorities interfere with your rights, a compassionate advocate can help you navigate the bureaucratic red tape.
In all of these matters, I will be with you at each step to protect your children’s welfare and your rights as a parent.
Dedicated counselor handles divorce, alimony and property division matters
I help clients to end their marriage with as little stress as possible, but when the situation demands litigation, I won’t hesitate to advocate for your rights in court. Whether your breakup is contested or amicable, I provide comprehensive support for:
- Divorce — I will guide you through the divorce process so that your rights are protected and you can move forward with confidence.
- Spousal support — So that divorce doesn’t unnecessarily disadvantage one party, I help you seek the best possible settlement or judgment for spousal support payments, whether you must pay alimony or will receive it.
- Property division — I will advocate for a fair allocation of your marital estate and debt, ensuring the court has a full financial accounting.
- Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements — I draft and review comprehensive prenuptial and postnuptial agreements that protect your interests and can alleviate some of the stress and uncertainty should you ever divorce.
Mediation may be useful in helping you and your partner to achieve amicable agreements about issues involving your children, property and finances. If mediation proves unproductive, however, I am a skilled litigator who will advocate for your best interests in court.
