Divorce in Alabama
Alabama law provides both fault-based and no-fault divorce. No-fault is the most common type of divorce in the state. It is based on an “irretrievable breakdown” of the marriage in which reconciliation is pointless. In this type of divorce, you do not have to prove any kind of marital misconduct on the part of your spouse. Where the issues of your divorce are uncontested between the two of you, this divorce can proceed much faster because it does not require lengthy court hearings.
However, even in a no-fault divorce, if you and your spouse disagree on the issues and terms of your divorce, your case will take longer as it will require mediation or litigation in court where a judge will decide the issues.
Issues that must be resolved in any Alabama divorce include:
- How marital property and debts will be divided.
- How child custody and visitation will be arranged.
- Child support.
- Whether spousal support/alimony will be provided to a spouse, its amount, and duration.
Alabama also provides other grounds for divorce; these must be proven in court with evidence. These include but are not limited to adultery, insanity, abandonment, alcohol or drug addiction, imprisonment for a crime, and others.
Alabama’s residency requirement for the filing of divorce consists of one of the spouses having lived in the state for at least six months.
