Child Custody
Child custody often times comes along with divorce. It can occur following a divorce where custody is challenged. If faced with child custody issues seek legal help immediately. We understand the importance of these issues that our clients face.
A divorce is rarely easy. When children are involved, even an amicable divorce can take a turn for the worst. When property is involved, it is important to take action to ensure that your future interests are protected. Although technically a divorce is a decision made and carried out between two people, the truth is that the choice to enter into a divorce will have much wider-spread consequences.

Our firm is dedicated to guiding you through this process. We represent husbands and wives going through this challenging time. Our goal is to minimize the stress that divorce or child custody may have on you and your family. Our firm's aim is to ensure your financial future during and after divorce.

Child Support
Child support is a topic of much debate. All children need the support of both parents. At the same time, parents need adequate legal advice to protect their assets and the needs of their children. This can be a very complex and intense issue.
It is the parents responsibility to contribute for support of the minor children. The most important factor for the court in determining child support are the needs of the children and the parent's ability to pay his/her portion of the support. Child support in Alabama is typically determined on guidelines which account for each parent's income and needs of the child.

At Swann-Zwiebel we understand the emotional challenges both the custodial and non-custodial parent can face during child support cases. It is vital that each parent have legal representation to learn how to effectively protect their assets while providing for the needs of their children.

Family
Family law is an all encompasing umbrella area of law. In family law there are diverse issues such as divorce, adoption, child support, child custody, alimony and spousal support issues. Each issue deserves the upmost attention.
At Swann-Zwiebel we understand the conflicts that can arise when going through any family law related issue. We also understand the emotional and financial burdens that each party faces. At Swann-Zwiebel our focus on family law is one made of passion. We work with our clients to achieve the best possible result that is fact and case driven. Each client gets our undivided attention and all phone calls are returned with in 24 hours. We also offer our email address as a means of communication. We understand that questions and issues may come at different times of the day and night. We want to be there to ease each client's problems. Uncertainty is an element we try to eliminate at every turn. At Swann-Zwiebel we explain each process and expected outcomes during every step of the case. We keep our clients informed so that they can better prepare for upcoming events.

We work with each client to ensure the best possible result. Each case has very different facts and each fact is important to our clients for different reasons. We understand that and use that to better assist our clients. We are here for you. Your problems are our problems. Let's find solutions together.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

With over 10 years in the legal field, I always knew that I wanted to assist people with their family law related issues. I have been in their shoes. I know the difficulties that come with a divorce. I understand the issues that mean the most to my clients. Understanding these issues is the reason family law is my passion. Making a difference in someone's life always begins at home.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

I worked in the legal field for over 10 years before ever attending law school. I have been on both sides of the fence. I have work for plaintiff and defendants' firms. I have worked for family law firms. I have seen the different areas of law at work behind the scenes. I knew I could make a difference in people's lives by practicing in family law. Family law affects people's lives in the most personal way from any other law.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

We take our clients' issues personally. We work toward solutions from the very beginning of the case. Each meeting is an opportunity to reach a settlement. We can always try the case but most clients will receive a more fair outcome from settlement. So, we do not waste any opportunity to work with all parties toward that goal. We are a solution-oriented firm. We work closely with our clients to give them the best possible result. All phone calls are returned within 24 hours and our emails are widely-distributed to each client for ease of communication. We know that communication is key in resolving conflicts and want to always have an open line of communication for our clients.

We work closely with other firms and judges in the areas of family law to make this field family-friendly. Each client presents a different challenge. Our passion gets deeper with each case. We are always open to learn new and innovative ways to bring results to our clients. Our commitment to service is unparalled. We make sure that at every turn we can take uncertainty off the table. We want our clients to know what to expect at every event.
