Divorce is an unfortunate and increasing reality of today’s world. While every divorce is different, the one constant that ties them all together is that the families involved will be forever changed by the events that ensue. The manner in which your divorce is handled can have lasting financial and personal effects. As such, the selection of an attorney to represent you is an important decision that should be made with care.
The attorneys of Pruitt & Tudisco, P.C. are committed to helping you manage and preserve your family’s financial assets, rather than wasting them on unnecessary or excessive legal fees.

In some cases, however, parties’ positions are so polarized that settlement is unrealistic, and the facts must be heard by the Court. When negotiations break down, you need an attorney who is dedicated to fighting for your rights.

The attorneys of Pruitt & Tudisco, P.C., are sensitive to how important child custody can be, and are dedicated to keeping families intact. We bring expert knowledge of Alabama family law to the table, and the experience of how to best represent your interests to the court. Importantly, child custody laws in Alabama are designed to keep “the best interests of the child” in mind, but that term is inherently subjective and entirely dependent upon the facts presented. Whether you are involved a pending divorce, a parent seeking a modification, or are concerned about the well-being of relative children, let the lawyers of Pruitt & Tudisco, P.C., work to ensure that what the court defines as your child’s “best interest” is what you seek as well.
It is a fundamental duty of parents to provide for the material support of their children. However, as we all know, not all individuals meet this most basic of obligations. When this occurs, it is important to have competent and dedicated attorneys on your side.
In Alabama, child support is calculated using guidelines that take into account the relative income of the parties, the number of children involved, and the healthcare and childcare expenses incurred by the parents. These calculations are performed in all divorces or custody actions where the courts determine who will have the primary physical custody of a child. However, once the court determines the appropriate support, it may still become necessary to seek court intervention to enforce the proper payment of the support obligation or to determine when the prior award is due to be modified.
The attorneys of Pruitt & Tudisco, P.C., have extensive experience handling all areas of support enforcement and modification. Whether you need assistance collecting support from a non-compliant parent or need assistance having a prior support order modified, let us assist you in getting the support necessary for you and your family.
