Child Custody And Visitation Arrangements
Even the most amicable divorces have rough spots in them, so it is beneficial to have legal representation from a firm that can be your ally and skillfully guide you through the dissolution process. One of the most critical parts of the divorce is developing child custody and visitation agreements.

Protect Your Best Interests
At Jones, Hawkins, & Associates in Montgomery, our lawyers are well-versed in the strategy and details behind both custody litigation and custody arrangements negotiated by both parents. Whatever the method used to get to the final agreement, the primary concern is upholding the best interests of the children and maintaining a level of consistency that will benefit their well-being.
It is best for the children to maintain contact with family members when possible after a divorce. Here are several options for custody arrangements:
- Joint custody
- Sole custody
- Structured parental visitation schedules
- Grandparent visitation
In some instances, a child’s personal preferences are also considered in the formation of custody and visitation plans. Legal representation is vital in navigating the court system and in meeting the legal requirements/burdens to obtain custody or modify custody.
Curtailing Custody Disputes
When emotions are strong and a mutually-agreed upon arrangement does not happen, Alabama law states that the court will decide on matters of custody and visitation. It is precisely at that time that you need a sharp litigator in your corner to advocate for you. After the divorce is final, our firm can assist you with any custody modification required.
