Huntsville Modification Lawyer

If there has been a change in circumstances since a divorce decree or custody order was entered, changes can be made to court orders for child custody, visitation and support. Although it may seem simple, the modification process can be complex and require the advice and guidance of an experienced family law attorney, and may involve negotiation, mediation and/or litigation.

Experienced Madison County Lawyer

I am Rachel Murphy Morgan, an attorney based in Huntsville, Alabama. I have 14 years of experience with domestic and criminal matters, and handle cases throughout Madison, Morgan, Limestone, Jackson and Lawrence counties. My family law practice includes the filing of petitions to modify divorce decrees and custody orders.

Custody and visitation — In custody situations, the court favors the best interest of the child. It can be due to the changing needs of the child or a change in living situations for either parent. I have been successful in winning custody for fathers, as well as for mothers.

Child support — This can be due to a promotion or better job, loss of a job, or any change in salary of one or both parents. Child support may need to be modifed in the event of changes in other circumstances including changes in the needs of a child. Other instances include a change in the custody or visitation agreement, or when paternity has been established for parents who were never married. Examinations for these types of modifications should happen every few years.

To file a divorce, modification of a divorce decree, or a paternity action in Huntsville or the surrounding areas, contact me at 256-533-3335 or by email using the online form.
