A young female client from Birmingham, Alabama called a few weeks back in desperate need of help from an Alabama divorce lawyer. She was crying and telling me how her husband was no good, frequently beat on her, threw her out of the house and tried to steal her baby. She had no money, very little means to obtain any money, and in need of some sympathy and compassion. I told her that we could file for divorce tomorrow, have a motion for temporary support requiring her husband to maintain her previous living condition and provide for her baby by the weekend, get her back in her house temporarily, file a temporary restraining order against the abusive husband in the short run, make him pay alimony, child support, attorney's fees, and get her back into the house permanently in the long run. I have made it my mission in life to see this guy get what he deserves.
