Positive Experience! My son used Ms. Nikolakis to gain custody of his daughter. Ms. Nikloakis was very knowledgeable of the Alabama law and advised my son appropriately. She stayed "on top" of his case! My son is now enjoying having permanent custody of his daughter! The family is very pleased with the services of Ms. Nikolakis. Resonably priced....money well spent! Thank you Ms. Nikolakis and Ms. Carol!

Had a tough custody fight with my daughter on drugs and the children's dad selling drugs. The kids were exposed to all kinds of drug activity, but I was able to get full permanent custody of them after 2 court hearings. I am very grateful for the excellent job Mr. Bodiford did and would recommend him to anyone seeking custody of their children or grandchildren.

James represented me for a high speeding ticket and he was superb. Not Guilty was the result of James' great work. He knows his way around the courtroom and is a top notch pro - and very pleasant to work with. I highly recommend James for your legal needs.

Mr. Bodiford has been helpful in anything that I have asked him to help with concerning my family or friends. He just finished a case with my niece and she is very happy with the results.
Tips & Advices
Each state has different mandates on how child support is determined. But there are some basic factors that underline how costs are determined in each state, including:
  • Income level of parent that needs to pay support (in the case of joint custody, the costs are determined by income of each party and the percentage of time the child spends with each parent)
  • Financial needs of child
  • Child’s standard of living before the divorce occurred
This is a divorce in which one party does not have to prove that the other’s actions lead to a deterioration of the marriage. The reason for divorce is listed as "irreconcilable differences" or an "irreparable breakdown of the marriage,” meaning the marriage was no longer working and could not be repaired.
Family law attorneys are helpful in cases where the two parties are not on amicable terms. The lawyers can act as intermediaries between the two parties and help them come to any settlement agreements, however long that may take. Lawyers can also help parties navigate tricky state laws regarding settlement agreements and child custody, thus expediting the process.
A contested divorce is one in which the parties cannot agree on either the necessity of the divorce as a whole, or how assets (money, property, etc.) and child custody should be split between them in the divorce. An uncontested divorce is when the parties are in agreement on how assets and child custody will be split between them. These divorces can sometimes be handled without hiring a lawyer.
It is possible for a couple to get a divorce without hiring a family law attorney. If the two parties are in agreement on how finances, child custody, properties, etc., will be split, then they can file the necessary court documents themselves and avoid the services of a lawyer.
