Alabama Divorce Details

Alabama Residency Requirements

If the non-filing spouse (the Defendant) lives in Alabama, the filing spouse (the Plaintiff) can file for divorce at any time. However, if the Defendant does not live in Alabama, the Plaintiff must live in Alabama for at least six (6) months before filing for divorce.

Grounds for Divorce

Alabama allows for no-fault divorce on the grounds of an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage when future attempts at reconciliation will be futile and are not in the best interests of the spouses and/or children.

Filing Your Alabama Divorce
