Child Custody


Nothing in family and divorce law causes more stress and creates more heartache, expense, and conflict than the issue of child custody.  The way child custody is addressed by the attorneys and the court system itself can result in custody arrangements and awards that have long terms effects for the children and parents alike.  Custody arrangements for children after a divorce are vital to their well-being.  Therefore, it is all that much more critical that the attorney you chose to represent you when child custody is at issue has the utmost experience and understanding of and ability to use the law that is relevant to how your custodial rights will be allocated between you and the other parent.  The issue of your child’s or children’s custody demands that you have the most experienced, knowledgeable, and progressive attorney possible to help you attain the best possible custodial arrangement for your family.

The Law Offices of Judy H. Barganier, P.C has years of experience negotiating and litigating fair child support under all kinds of circumstances.  Our firm strives to see that your child support orders or arrangements are resolved, enforced, and or modified as your family needs, your children’s needs, and your income or the income of your former spouse change.  If you are going through a divorce or if you are already divorced or living separately from your child’s other parent, you should be able to adequately provide for your child’s’ financial needs.

Whether the custody award you want is for sole, joint, or shared custody, physical and/or legal custody, you must have an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to prepare and present the facts and law applicable to your circumstances in order to help you attain the best custody award possible for you and for your children during the divorce process and beyond as your family structure changes.

As a potential client, you need a skilled Alabama attorney that can help you negotiate agreements tailored to your children's best interests or prepare your case for presentation to a judge at a trial on those issues for the best results possible under your circumstances in original divorce actions and / or in cases for modification or attempts to modify prior orders of custody, visitation, and child support in Alabama.

Closed Door Family Law Courtroom and the

Integrity, like character, is often defined by doing what's right even when no one is looking.
