Grounds For Divorce In Alabama

In Alabama, you can seek a divorce based on specific grounds or you can choose a no-fault divorce. If fault can be shown as the cause for the divorce, it can impact the amount and duration of alimony that is awarded to the recipient spouse. Many people don’t understand the grounds for divorce in Alabama. If you’re considering a fault-based divorce, a Birmingham family law attorney can help you understand your options.

At The Rose Law Firm, LLC, we dedicate our entire practice to Alabama family law. We have worked with many clients to pursue fault-based divorces. We understand the factors that the court considers in finding fault, and we know the best approach for presenting a compelling case on your behalf.

Understanding Whether You Have Grounds For A Fault-Based Divorce

Many people come to our office seeking a fault-based divorce when no fault actually exists. We will conduct a thorough review of your situation and give you an honest assessment of whether you have grounds or not. If you do not, we can still help you pursue a no-fault divorce based on incompatibility or the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage.

Among the most common grounds for a fault-based divorce in Alabama are the following:

  • Abandonment
  • Adultery
  • Violence or cruelty
  • Addiction to drugs or alcohol
  • Incurable insanity
  • The wife was pregnant with the child of another man at the time of the wedding
