DIVORCE & DOMESTIC LAW

GETTING DIVORCED IN ALABAMA — WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
Alabama courts split divorce into two key categories: fault-based and no-fault based. If your need for divorce is fault-based, that means that your spouse has wronged you in some way — for instance, by cheating, abusing drugs or alcohol, abandoning or abusing you, or suffering prolonged insanity or imprisonment. Or, it means that your spouse is accusing you of committing one of the above offenses.
If, on the other hand, your divorce is no-fault based, that means that you and your ex have come to the mutual decision to separate. Typically, this makes the divorce process a little easier on the people involved, though that isn’t always the case.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Depending on whether your separation is fault-based or no-fault based, the way you file for divorce may differ slightly. Likewise, the legal proceedings that follow will depend on how cooperative you and your ex can be. Fortunately, a knowledgeable divorce lawyer can help you determine which steps to take and how to handle each step of the process. Additionally, an experienced attorney such as myself can guide you through the separation of assets, establish child custody and support, arrange for spousal support, and help you with related matters.
