Considerate Alabama Lawyer Helps With Child Custody Issues
Caring attorney protects the rights of parents in the Birmingham area
No parent should have to endure the devastation of losing precious time with a child or forfeiting essential parental rights because of an unjust custody or visitation decision. When the welfare and security of your child are at stake, it is essential to enlist a strong legal representative to look out for your child’s best interests. A knowledgeable attorney can present your case and advocate for your rights to raise your child in a healthy, thriving environment. At Joseph C. Somma, PC, I represent parents in Alabama child custody disputes in the Birmingham area and throughout Alabama. I am committed to protecting your right to maintain a meaningful relationship with your child.
Strategic mediator encourages cooperation in mediation
Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, parents can set aside enmity and agree on key points concerning their children. Mediation can be a highly effective tool, helping you preserve your children’s well-being and the stability of their lives during the turbulent process of divorce. The predictability of mediation reduces the stress of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in your hands, rather than in the hands of the court. I can help guide negotiations toward agreements that protect your child’s best interests and your parental rights.
Reliable litigator stays by your side in court proceedings
If you and your child’s other parent cannot agree on how to raise your child, or if they pose a threat to your child’s well-being, I will represent you steadfastly in family court. The courtroom provides an essential forum for establishing your parental rights and protecting your child’s best interests. At Joseph C. Somma, PC, I represent clients in matters related to:
- Primary and joint custody arrangements
- Visitation rights
- Grandparent visitation
- Modification of custody and visitation orders
- Enforcement of orders
- Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
- Decisions related to religion, education and upbringing of the child
The uncertainty of litigation can be stressful for parents and children alike. As your committed representative, I am prepared to address all of your concerns and those of your family. You can trust me not to waver during child custody negotiations or litigation.
