Solo/Family Law A True “No Brainer”... Continued from page 24 You don’t have to be a sole practitioner or a member of a very small firm to become a member One of the misconceptions of our section is that you have to be a sole practitioner or in a very small firm to enjoy section benefits. Not so. Our bylaws open the membership to any dues-paying member of the Birmingham Bar. To join, simply attend an upcoming monthly CLE at the Bar Center and bring a check made payable to the BBA for $30.00 or you can send a check at any time in that amount to Dana Thomas at the Bar Center offices. Soon we will send out our “Save the Date” event calendar for 2017. So there you have it. Where else can you get this kind of value for a mere $30.00? If you have any questions about section membership, please feel free to email me at Goozlaw@aol.com. Come Join us! It is a no brainer. Steve Goozee is Principal with the Law Office of Stevan Goozee, PC, and is Chair of the BBA Solo/Small Firm Practice Section.

Did you know…that before an Alabama court gains subject matter jurisdiction to enforce a foreign child-custody order, the Uniform Child Custody and Enforcement Act requires that the foreign order be properly registered in this state? Proper registration of a foreign child-custody order is attained by strictly following the proper procedure outlined in §30-3B-305, and until that procedure is followed, no subject matter jurisdiction exists. Krouse v. Youngblood, 171 So. 3d 49 (Ala. Civ. App. 2015). Charles Dunn is a partner with the firm of Boyd, Fernambucq & Dunn, P.C. A8020220-01 Birmingham Bar Bulletin/ Spring 2017 25
