Uncontested Divorces

If the parties can agree on the terms of property division, child custody, child support, and alimony, then an uncontested divorce may be best for you. Our office handles uncontested divorces in Mobile County and Baldwin County. Uncontested divorces are relatively inexpensive and can be handled in as little as 30 days from start to finish.

In an uncontested divorce, can the parties file their own legal paperwork?

Yes, but you do so at your own risk. Even though you may not be learned in the law, the court will hold you to the same standards as experienced divorce attorneys. Neither the court nor the court clerk’s office will give you legal advice or instruct you on what paperwork needs to be filed.

Can’t we just use divorce forms for Alabama that we purchase online?

You can try, but if the forms are not in compliance with Alabama Rules of Civil Procedure or the Code of Alabama, they will be rejected by the court. You may be tempted to purchase divorce legal forms from an online source or even from an office supply store. Every case is unique, so using canned forms that may not cover your particular situation is not recommended.

Will we have to go to court?

As long as the parties can agree on the terms of the divorce, court appearance won’t be necessary.

It is recommended that you hire an attorney to represent you in your uncontested divorce case. The law and the rules of procedure are very specific regarding what forms must be filed and the attorneys at Gulf Coast Attorneys are here to help you.

Contested Divorces

Divorces are contested when the parties to the marriage disagree about property division, alimony, child custody, child support and/or visitation. When the parties disagree about any issue, the judge will make the final decision. Contested divorces do require court appearances. You should contact Gulf Coast Attorneys to represent you in your contested divorce case. We will stand by you and work to achieve the best possible outcome to your case.
