Contested Versus Uncontested Divorces

Ontario J. Tillman provides counsel and representation for spouses in the midst of both contested and uncontested divorces. The uncontested divorce process is typically far faster — and less difficult on families, which can easily be torn apart via contested divorce litigation. However, in some circumstances, uncontested divorce is simply not possible. If contested divorce proves necessary, it is of utmost importance that you seek representation from a family lawyer you can trust.

At-Fault And No-Fault Divorces

In addition to distinguishing between contested and uncontested, divorces in Alabama are either deemed at-fault or no-fault. Most divorces are no-fault, with spouses choosing to part due to irreconcilable differences. As with uncontested divorces, no-fault divorces tend to be prompter and less complicated. However, at-fault divorces are sometimes in a spouse’s best interest, especially if the divorce is prompted by adultery, drug addiction, or imprisonment.

Filing Requirements in Alabama

Prior to filing for divorce, it is imperative that you understand the requirements and determine whether you are actually eligible. If you plan to file for divorce in Alabama, you must have been a resident for at least six months. Your spouse does not have to have lived in the state for six months, but the process is a lot easier if both parties are long-time Alabama residents. If you do not meet the residency requirements, it may be possible to have your spouse file for divorce instead. Otherwise, it may be in your best interest to remain in Alabama until you meet residency requirements.
