Child Welfare / Abuse

In some circumstances, parents are confronted by the Department of Human Resources (DHR) due to allegations regarding the safety and welfare of their children. If DHR is coming to your home, it is vital that you seek counsel immediately. While a DHR social worker may appear to be your friend and confidant, anything you say can and will be used against you in court. Hiring an experienced child welfare attorney immediately can help you eliminate issues that would lead to your children being removed permanently or your rights being terminated.

Division of Property

When it comes time to divorce, a primary concern for both parties may be the division of property. Alabama is an “equitable distribution” state. “Equitable” does not mean equal, but rather what is deemed fair under the circumstances. Under this standard, when parties are unable to reach an amicable solution, a judge is given broad discretion in awarding marital property. It is important that you be proactive in defending your financial security at the time of divorce. At The Yeatts Law Firm, we have the necessary experience and knowledge to protect your assets – your home, your retirement, and your financial future. Contact The Yeatts Law Firm for an initial consultation about the division of property.

Examples of a change in circumstances that may result in a modification of child custody or visitation include a new job, relocation to another state, a change in the child’s needs, injury or illness of a parent or child, or if a parent is no longer fit to parent.
