Caring Alabama Family Law Attorney Works to Resolve Child Support Issues
Dedicated lawyer advocates for your children’s financial well-being in the Birmingham area
You are not alone in your responsibility to pay for your child’s education, extracurricular activities, clothes, food, healthcare and other basic needs. A child is entitled to financial support from both parents, and neither parent should be made to take on more than their fair share of the costs following a divorce or breakup. At Joseph C. Somma, PC, I negotiate and work to uphold fair arrangements for the financial care of children. When clients in Alabama are involved in stressful child support battles, my priority is to achieve settlements and decisions that ensure your children are fully supported.
Informed Alabama adviser helps parents seek the best financial arrangements for their children
At Joseph C. Somma, PC, I take a personalized approach when addressing the needs of each and every client in issues involving child support. Dedicated to helping parents know their rights, I handle even the most complicated disagreements. Drawing on my experience and knowledge of case law, I provide the following services:
- Negotiation of child support through mediation

I will thoroughly explain Alabama child support guidelines and how they apply to you. My goal is to keep my clients informed and empowered at every step, so that they have peace of mind knowing what their children are entitled to and what they can expect out of the legal process.
Experienced mediator seeks fair child support agreements
When parents are respectful and cordial with one another, children can grow up feeling loved and supported. Through the structured process of mediation, parents are often able to put aside their differences and focus on a topic on which they tend to agree — the importance of their child’s well-being. Mediation presents a forum for creating fair child support plans that allow both parents to share in the financial obligations of raising their children. As a skilled negotiator, I can guide the process toward equitable solutions that save clients time and money.
Committed attorney helps parents during family court appearances
Sometimes, litigation is the only way to obtain the financial support your child deserves. I am a strong advocate in family court.
Child support orders remain in effect unless the court modifies the original order. If your child’s other parent fails to make court-ordered payments, Joseph C. Somma, PC can ask the court to compel the enforcement of the support order. When one parent suffers an injury or loses a job, fairness might dictate at least a temporary shift of financial burden to the other parent. I can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments to accommodate your changing financial circumstances.
