A recent traffic stop led to the arrest of two individuals. Police claim they violated Alabama criminal law by possessing a significant amount of marijuana in the car.

Two Alabama men are in police custody for their alleged role in an ongoing drug trafficking operation.

Family law experts report increase in women paying alimony

Many men in Alabama associate divorce with one thing -- alimony. Commonly referred to as spousal support, this post-divorce payment has long been shouldered by men, leaving many women with the impression that they cannot ever be ordered to pay their exes. Now, family law experts say this standard is changing.

According to family law, that family heirloom may stay with an ex

Family heirlooms are precious reminders from the past, regardless of their inherent value.

Unfortunately, this is not necessarily how family law functions, and without proper planning, a beloved heirloom might end up going to an ex-spouse.

When parents learn that their children are in trouble with the law, many thoughts may run through their minds. They may first wonder what happened or how they will punish their children themselves.

Disability may present need for child support modification

However, some changes in circumstances could have Alabama parents reconsidering their support terms.

Child custody often has children living in single-parent homes

In ideal situations, children would get to grow up with both of their parents present. Of course, this type of arrangement is not always feasible for a variety of reasons. In particular, divorce can cause Alabama families to separate into two households, and numerous children live in single parent homes for most of their lives due to child custody arrangements.
