  1. What is the residency requirement to file for divorce in Alabama?

Alabama divorce lawyer: Six months minimum for at least one spouse.

2. Can I file for divorce anywhere in the state?

Alabama divorce lawyer: Usually you have to file in the circuit court in the county where you live. There are exceptions and some courts allow you to file in the county even if you don’t live in that county but normally it will be the county where you live – especially if it contested. If uncontested you can usually file where you please.

3. How much does it cost?

Alabama divorce lawyer: It depends on whether it is contested or uncontested and it depends if the attorney charges a flat fee or puts you on a retainer. Even if you do your divorce yourself or file an online divorce which is also possible, you have to pay court fees and these vary according to which county you live in.

It depends. If it uncontested it can take as little as six weeks. If it is contested, it will take a minimum of 3 months on average and could take years depending on the situation. In all cases, there is a 30 day minimum waiting period before you can get even a uncontested divorce.

5. How much child support can I get?

The court will make a determination based on your monthly gross income and that of your child’s other parent  – your ex. Child support is based on the child support formula as it is in most other states.

Yes. A lot of people file their own divorce and if it is simple and there are no issues such as minor children and property or other assets, you should be able to easily file an uncontested divorce online. But if there are complications, you should probably get a competent and experienced attorney.

7. Can I resume my maiden name?

Normally yes.

8. How soon can I remarry after getting divorce in Alabama?

Not before 60 days ave passed, normally. Unless you are remarrying each other. But you can appeal this. Also note that in some cases the court can disallow remarriage altogether. It is rare but possible, although it can be appealed.

9. How is property division handled in Alabama?

Alabama is an equitable distribution state. That means the judge will order a division that is “fair” under be circumstances of your specific situation but that may or may not amount to a 50/50 split.
