Understanding the ins and outs of property division options can be a challenge. For many in Alabama, that aspect of divorce is the most difficult to weather. Fortunately, help is available from professionals who are trained in the financial aspects of divorce. Known as certified divorce financial analysts (CDFAs), these advisors can help guide spouses toward the choices that are best suited to their unique needs and goals.
When it comes to virtually any legal matter, jurisdiction is everything. This is especially true in family law matters, where the laws can vary from one state to another, and where there could be a clear advantage to having a case heard in Alabama versus a different jurisdiction. An example is found in a child custody case in which an adoption was challenged and eventually overturned.
