Allen Iverson Divorce Finalized, Strong Words by Judge

The end of a marriage can be an emotionally and physically draining time for all parties involved in the proceedings. A divorce may, however, sometimes be the only option if a marriage cannot be saved, and a quick decision on the legalities involved in the divorce is often the best outcome the participants can hope for.

As readers in Houston have probably heard, the divorce between former NBA player Allen Iverson and his wife was recently finalized. Iverson, who has reportedly fallen into difficult financial times since his last appearance as a player in the NBA in 2010, was recently in the news having rejected an offer from the Texas Legends, a D-League affiliate of the Mavericks.

The judge at the Atlanta family court where the case was heard added several legal restrictions to Iverson's contact rights as part of the divorce conditions and child custody agreement. Among these was the stipulation that the former NBA player would only retain visitation rights if he abstained from consuming alcohol for 18 months. He is also barred from consuming any alcohol within 24 hours of meeting with his children until they turn 18.

Sometimes ending a marriage may be in the best interest of a divorcing couple's children due to personal issues that a parent may be going through. It is important that those facing the prospect of the end of a marriage be aware of their applicable legal rights and responsibilities to avoid lengthy divorce proceedings.

One of the best decisions I have ever made was to hire Ms. Cheryl Alsandor. I am very please and grateful, she is by far the most knowledgeable and efficient attorney i have ever dealt with. Her knowledge to destroy an opponent in a court room is incredible. Her ability to catch them in lies and ask the questions to make them look like the idiots they are is key. If you have a serious court issue for family or custody, you need to hire Ms. Alsandor. She knows the law and can see through the opponents lies and intentioal missleading actions. The Judges are sometimes is blinded by the lies of the other side if you dont have a excellent attorney to clear the path for the judge. Ms. Alsandor will clear the path and let the judge see the truth and you will be victorious. Follow your gut and trust Ms. Alsandor. You will be glad you did, believe me.

Mrs. Alsandor is an excellent attorney; but most of she is a very empathetic person. This is what separated her from the other attorneys I consulted before hiring her. She helped me during one of the most diffcult times of my life. I was divorcing my wife and fighting for primary custody of my 10 year old son. I actually did not think I would be granted custody being that I am a man and the court systems usually favorite women as being the primary custodian. However after I consulted with Mrs. Alsandor she basically assured me she would do everything legally possible to assure that I was granted custody. Mrs. Alsandor was very understanding, kind and very compassionate. I felt as if she had taken my case personally and this was her fight as well. She responded to my many phone calls and emails; and there were a lot(because of my nerves) Her prices were very reasonable for the extraordinary work that she does. I recently recommend her to one of my co-workers and he noticed the very same qualities. Mrs. Alsandor was God sent. I am happy to report I did win primary custody of my son. We are doing well and we are very happy all thanks to Mrs. Alsandor. Nelson D.

My case was handled well, with professionalism and within a reasonable time frame. I would recommend Attorney Alsandor to anyone because she is straight forward and stayed within the guidelines of the law. I did not have to worry about winning my case because she had it under control. I especially like that I did not have to do a lot of work like traveling to her office and missing meetings at my office because we communicated via email, where I could sign the documents and scan and send it. Lastly, her prices where affordable and I was able to easily pay online, which again saved me time. Steven
