Child Custody

At The Oncale Firm, we have worked with countless parents to address the difficult and muddy waters of child custody and child visitation. Parents often feel afraid and confused.

Because society is committed to the best interests of children, child custody and child visitation are matters of deep concern to the courts. That is why The Oncale Firm serves families in Birmingham — so that parents do not have to deal with these vexing and perplexing issues on their own.

The laws governing custody in Alabama seek to avoid emotional trauma to children as a result of the divorce. Parents are encouraged to reach a custody agreement on their own because they understand the dynamic that exists between parent and child better than the courts can. For this reason many parents opt to resolve custody disputes through mediation, which The Oncale Firm provides.
