What We Do

Family Law


A family crisis such as a divorce can tear apart a family much more than the actual dissolving of the marital bonds between the husband and wife.  When children are the subject of a custody dispute, the stakes are even higher and the issues, if not dealt with properly, can result in long term problems for the children and their families.  Our experienced legal advice combined with our highly focused negotiation and litigation skills will help you resolve and move beyond stressful and complicated family law issues.

Barganier, P.C. is an Alabama family law firm armed with the experience and knowledge needed to provide clients with all the information necessary to make the right decisions.  We are committed to our clients and their families during initial divorce and custody cases, as well as any modifications or appeals.

Closed Door Family Law Courtroom and the

Integrity, like character, is often defined by doing what's right even when no one is looking. And, like the sunshine laws that allow the general public greater knowledge of our government's actions by limiting what government can do when no one is looking, the constitutional requirement that our courtrooms shall be open to the public seeks to promote the integrity of our judicial system by limiting what can go on behind closed doors in our courtrooms and thus shielded from ...
