How long does it take to get a divorce in the state of Alabama?


Answer by  djb228 (510)

In Alabama, there is a 30-day waiting period between the time when a divorce is filed and the final judgment. The divorce process may be much longer if the equitable division of the property, child custody is contested, or if the other person contests the divorce itself.

If you don't live in Alabama you must be live there for up to 6 months before you can file for a divorce. Hopefully you do live there so the divorce may take up to 30 days in some cases some divorces do take up to a year if you and your spouse do not agree to the terms.


Answer by  timmsa (577)

Alabama law requires that you live in the state for a least 6 months before you can even file for divorce. Then there is a 30 day waiting period after you file. If one spouse contests it then it could take more than 30. Even if neither spouse contests it then it still could be long than 30 days.

Based on a quick Google search, the minimum time is 30 days. It would likely he longer if either party is in disagreement- maybe up to 6 months.

If it's uncontested it takes 30 days. Now if the parties go back and forth and can't agree then the time would be undetermined. When they decide to agree and settle, only time will tell for a particular couple.

The time frame for a divorce is going to depend on the type of divorce, if childrne are involved and if it is contested or not.

I would guess that like anywhere else the time varies from couple to couple. It is hard to answer this because it has to do with if they are children involved, and other variables.
