Protecting Your Rights in Family Law Matters

Whether you are considering filing for divorce or are already a party to a divorce proceeding, you want an attorney who will work hard to protect your rights, one who will listen carefully to your concerns and help you find solutions that meet your specific needs. With the emotional stress that can come with a divorce, you also want an attorney who will give you a high level of personal service and attention, one who will be there to answer your questions whenever they arise.

At the Law Office of Leif Rush Hampton, Attorney at Law, P.C., in Tuscaloosa, I work hard to obtain the desired results while maintaining the personal service and attention clients expect. I aggressively protect the rights of my clients, while providing straightforward answers to questions in a supportive environment.

My Divorce Practice

I work with individuals at all stages of a divorce or family law matter, from the initial filing through negotiated settlements or to post-decree requests for modification or enforcement of existing court orders. I have provided counsel to same sex partners as well as married couples. I handle all matters related to or arising out of divorce, including:

  • Child custody and visitation: I will help you establish and implement custody and visitation arrangements that promote the best interests of your children while protecting and maintaining your rights as parents.
  • Child support and child support contempt defense: I will review all proposed child support orders to ensure compliance with Alabama guidelines. I will also examine whether all relevant sources of income have been included in the calculation.
  • Alimony or spousal support: I will help you determine whether spousal support is warranted, looking at the 14 factors considered by the courts in Alabama. If alimony is appropriate, I will help you establish the appropriate amount, frequency and length of payments.
  • Property division: I will work with you to equitably divide the debts and assets of your marriage, looking at retirement plans and pensions, real property, business assets, and investments.

When you contact me to discuss your divorce, I will take the time to help you understand the entire process, as well as your rights and responsibilities regarding custody, support and property matters. I will ask you to be honest with me about all aspects of your marriage and your relationship with your children, so I can tailor my representation to best fit your goals. I will also advise you regarding the best way to protect your long term interests.
