Legal Answers
107 Questions Answered

Q. AL child custody laws
A: Hello. There is misinformation floating around regarding children and the age when children can "choose" who to live with. Children do not get to choose who they want to live with until they are no longer children, which is 19 in Alabama. That being said, the older a child is the more weight their opinion carries in custody determinations in front of a judge. So you have that going for you. Other considerations would be your violation/contempt of not following the current order that's in place because rightly or wrongly the kids have had a change of heart about dad. It's rare that police will force older children to go with a parent when they are adamant to police about not going; however, police can still be called and reports made. Best of luck!
Q. Can I prove my husband is not the father with a paternity test while pregnant and then get a divorce in Alabama
A: Hello, this is a good question for someone who practices in your local jurisdiction. They can give you the best advice on if a pre-birth test would be admissible to proving your husband is not the father. Best of luck!
Q. Our son was divorced one year ago this Oct. Per the decree, the marital home (which is owned JTWROS by my wife and me
A: Hello. It's difficult to know without looking at the decree or settlement agreement about the status of the lease. It may be valid unless there's a provision stating it can't be leased during that time period. Your son can enforce the decree once the time to sell has lapsed if the house is still not sold, which sounds like two years from now. I would recommend going with your son to an attorney in your area and get some guidance on what the options are for both of you. Bets of luck!
Q. What is the typical cost for an uncontested divorce?
A: Hello. It varies depending on how in depth the settlement agreement needs to be drafted. It also depends on how uncontested is it? Have you and your spouse worked out all the details or do you expect the attorney to do that for you? Also, court costs vary from county to county so that depends on where you file. Best of luck!
Q. In Alabama when u go for child support how far back can you go? My child is 4.
A: Hello. You can ask for it to be retroactive back to birth, but that is something within the judge's discretion based on the facts of your case. Best of luck!
Q. If my childrens father already pays child support to his ex wife, how will that affect my child support?
A: Hello. He will get a credit of $380 deducted from his gross monthly income.
Q. My wife's ex will pay for something for their daughter then take it out of the support he pays. What are our options?
A: Hello. To file contempt would be your option, without knowing the specifics of all the facts. Your wife should seek counsel in her area to determine what is the best course of action. Best of luck!
Q. Do I have to pay Child Support in Alabama after my child is 19 and going to school?
A: Hello. I don't know when your divorce was finalized so it may make a difference. Under the current law, no, you would not owe child support past 19. The only way you could is if you agreed to pay after she reached age 19. I would contact counsel in your area and consult with them to make sure. Best of luck.
Q. How do I go about getting a birth father's parental rights terminated for myy almost 5 year old daughter?
A: Hello. You would need to go the your local juvenile court and speak with an intake specialist to file a TPR. You may also contact a local attorney and speak with them first about what options are available and which option is best given your particular facts. Best of luck to you and your daughter!
