When Can You Settle a Divorce in Alabama?

When Can You Settle a Divorce in Alabama?

“A divorce in Alabama can be settled at almost any stage of the divorce process, whether prior to initiating an action with the Court or while the case is pending before the Court. Often, parties will attempt to negotiate a settlement in what is known as an uncontested divorce proceeding prior to Court involvement. However, just because a complaint has already been filed with the Court and your matter is pending before the Court, this doesn’t limit your options to negotiate a settlement, even right down to the night before trial. Parties in an Alabama divorce may also consider mediation of their matter, a form of alternative dispute resolution using a neutral third-party to assist the parties in reaching a settlement. Mediation can take place at any time by agreement of the parties, or, in some counties, by Court order.”
