You or your spouse must meet the Alabama residency requirements for the Circuit Court to have jurisdiction of your case. The requirements before filing your Complaint for Divorce (the document that initiates your divorce) are as follows:
When the defendant is a nonresident, the plaintiff( other party) to the marriage must have been a bona fide resident of this state for six months next before the filing of the complaint.
Complaints for divorce may be filed in the circuit court of the county in which the defendant resides, or in the circuit court of the county in which the parties resided when the separation occurred, or if the defendant is a nonresident, then in the circuit court of the county in which the plaintiff to the marriage resides.
In order to use this service, you and your spouse must agree (or eventually agree) on getting the divorce. Your spouse's participation is minimal, being he or she will only have to sign a few documents and return them to you for filing with the court.
The most common "uncontested" grounds for divorce in Alabama are:
1. Incompatibility of temperament that the parties can no longer live together.
2. Irretrievable breakdown of the marriage and that further attempts at reconciliation are impractical or futile and not in the best interests of the parties or family.
3. voluntary abandonment from bed and board for one year next preceding the filing of the complaint.
All of your documents will be current according to Alabama statutes and will address over 100 issues. A few of these issues are; assets, property, current debts, future debts, insurances, retirement and pension accounts, spousal support/alimony, real estate, small businesses, tax filings, name changes, and professional fees. If you have children, our service will also address physical and legal custody arrangements, visitation schedules, child support, and health and medical coverage.
If you desire, you can visit the Alabama State Website for more information about Alabama divorce laws.
An Acceptance and Waiver of Service is permitted if signed by the defendant and a credible witness. There is a 30-day waiting period after the filing of the summons and complaint before a judge may issue a final judgment of divorce. Testimony in uncontested divorces may be taken before a court clerk, by sworn statements, or by transcripts of oral depositions.
