When Divorce Disrupts Your Game Plan, I Can Coach You Through

Who gets married thinking that marriage will end in divorce? Almost no one. When your domestic life is breaking up, it can seem as if someone has moved the goalposts in your life. Naturally, the emotional and interpersonal aspects are tough. But you must find financial and legal solutions. There are many details to resolve at this time of transition. This is not the time to head for an unknown future without a lawyer’s advice and help.

Regardless of whether you and your spouse share children, you need a new plan to move forward. This is not the time to try an end-around and avoid important steps. You must face the challenge in front of you. I am family law attorney Richard E. Mather of Mobile, Alabama, and I believe in sitting down with each and every one of my clients and listening attentively to their needs. With more than 20 years of legal experience and a personal commitment to helping those in need, I will work tirelessly to achieve the best possible outcome for your case.

Inch By Inch, You Can Fight Your Way Back

Even when divorce was never in your game plan, I am confident that you can get out of the red zone and back on track with a new playbook. I can help you find efficient, reasonable answers to issues such as:

  • Property division, including real estate, personal property, bank accounts, investments and retirement assets
  • Spousal support and/or alimony, if one of you has been financially dependent on the other
  • Child custody plans, visitation and support

If you and your spouse can negotiate reasonably, you may be able to settle your agreement in conferences. Even if your divorce is contested — that is, you cannot agree on terms — it may still be resolved through mediation instead of a trial.

I am available and ready to serve as your knowledgeable advocate and guide through all legal processes. If your spouse is hiding income or assets or is not playing fairly with custody arrangements, I am well-prepared to pursue justice for you and your children.

When Other Legal Issues Matter To Your Family

In addition to divorce, I help clients with the following:

  • Custody and support modifications and enforcement of court orders
  • Stepparent adoptions and other private adoptions
  • Paternity actions and termination of parental rights
  • Fathers’ rights and mothers’ rights
  • Name changes
  • Guardianships
