Amanda C. Canupp
Ms. Canupp’s practice is focused on family law and divorce. She regularly counsels clients about division of assets, child custody, alimony, support, modifications, and related matters. When clients wish to settle their divorce or other family law matter, she will work with clients, opposing counsel, and mediators to work out the best possible solution.
When settlement is not possible, she will assist clients at trial and, if necessary, on appeal. She has significant experience litigating major divorce and related matters and has tried divorce and family law cases before almost all of the judges in Madison, Morgan, and Limestone Counties. Ms. Canupp has handled many matters in surrounding counties and has briefed and orally argued significant family law issues on appeal to Alabama’s appellate courts.
Along with many other family law issues, Ms. Canupp regularly advises clients about adoptions, paternity, qualified domestic relations orders, and division of retirement accounts, including military retirement benefits and thrift savings plans.
Ms. Canupp’s experience in family law began during law school where she was the administrative chair of the Family Law Society. While serving as chair, she represented indigent family law clients through the Children’s Rights and Family Law Clinic.
