Former baseball player's family law situation just got worse

Major League Baseball fans in Alabama and throughout the nation are likely familiar with Danny Tartabull's long-standing career with the Yankees. In fact, many may recall that he was the highest paid player in the American League in 1992. At that time, he had signed a 5-year, $27 million contract. These days, Tartabull's spending his time behind bars, after his recent arrest concerning a contentious family law situation.

Recovering losses after Alabama motor vehicle accidents

Alabama roadways are no different than other roads in the nation in that they are sometimes highly dangerous places. The types of things that place travelers at risk vary. Sometimes, inclement weather and/or road conditions play a part. Other times, motor vehicle accidents occur because motorists have been negligent.

Couple says family law process in United States is prejudiced

Many married couples in Alabama can relate to others who, for whatever reasons, are unable to conceive children. Some have no trouble conceiving, but consistently lose their pregnancies through miscarriage. This has prompted many spouses to enter the child adoption process. A couple in another state was thinking along these lines, but their hopes and dreams were abruptly halted when, as they tell it, they learned how prejudiced the family law process for adoption was at the agency they contacted.

Jesse Jackson Jr. agrees to pay more in family law situation

When child support disagreements arise between divorced parents in Alabama, tempers may flare and acrimonious battles ensue before such problems are resolved. It often takes extensive and aggressive litigation before fair and agreeable solutions can be found. Such is the case for Jesse Jackson, Jr. and his former wife, Sandi, who have been fighting over financial provisions for their children for some time now.

Military servicemembers often face family law challenges

A naval petty officer lost custody of his 6-year-old daughter while deployed on a submarine. There were also orders to place him under arrest for not being present at a custody hearing, although those orders were later canceled. This incident prompted the proposal of HB4071, which is designed to protect parents in Alabama and elsewhere serving on active duty in the military from certain family law problems involving child custody agreements.

Rap star Ludacris wins recent family law battle

A contentious battle has been ongoing between rapper Ludacris and Tamika Fuller, the mother of his child. The family law situation involves accusations that could potentially be very damaging to the rap star's reputation and career. However, in a surprising turn of events, a court outside Alabama made a recent decision in his favor.

What does Alabama family law require to adopt a foster child?

Children in the foster care system deserve loving homes just as much as any other child, and many couples are willing to adopt them in order to expand their families. However, being willing to provide a loving home to a child is not enough, and the adoption process can be daunting. Understanding what Alabama family law says about the process could help alleviate at least some of the stress and uncertainty that can surround it.

Understanding the child custody options available in family law

When Alabama married or unmarried parents decide to separate, it will be necessary to determine what will happen to their children. Most parents want to do what is best for their children, but it can be a challenge to determine what that might be. Understanding the basics of the child custody options available in family law could help parents to formulate a parenting plan that works for them and the children.

Couples seek family law advice for remarriage

A recent study concluded that in 40 percent of marriages in the U.S., at least one partner had previously been married. The study determined that the increase in the rate of remarriages is due to rising divorce rates and longer life expectancy, allowing people more time for a second or even third marriage. Because people in Alabama and elsewhere who marry later in life may have children and assets from previous relationships, they may consult family law attorneys for advice on protecting their heirs.

Family law attorneys notice signs in at-risk marriages

People in Alabama who notice certain symptoms in their body may recognize it is time to make a change before it is too late. For example, someone who notices the scale climbing may begin to work out, and another who feels short of breath may cut back on cigarettes. Some lawyers believe there are also signs in a marriage that indicate trouble is brewing. A couple ignoring those symptoms may end up visiting a family law attorney.
