Spousal and Child Support

The state of Alabama is guided by the Income Shares Model when determining the amount of child support after a divorce. Parents can independently negotiate the amount they consider reasonable, and if their arrangement is fair, the court will support this decision. But if the amount is incorrect or the court finds it does not meet the child's interests and needs, the court will decide at its own discretion. When deciding, the court will consider various factors including the number of minor children under the age of 19 years old, the total gross income of parents, the gross income of each parent as a percentage from a total income, the amount required to cover the child's health insurance, as well as other obligation regarding child support.

Financial support for the child is aimed at maintaining the standard of living that the child had while the parents were married. A parent with a higher income typically bears greater financial responsibility for the maintenance of the child.

Our smooth breakup allowed us to file for uncontested divorce and we just decided to arrange it as simply as possible. Online divorce seemed to be a good idea, and now I'm sure we did it right. All the papers were prepared with no issues and I'm pleased with the price. Thanks.

I think that all the papers related to a certain county with its own legal nuances would be prepared correctly only by a Alabama-based company. So that's why I used AlabamaOnlineDivorce and I was really satisfied. My divorce papers were completed in a timely manner and I had no troubles with filing. That was a really smooth process and you can be confident with your filing.

It always seemed to me that divorce must be a much more complicated process. I couldn't imagine how I would cope with that. Where do I get all those papers, how to fill them out and where to go and what to do? So, I was really glad I found alabamaonlinedivorce.com and they took care of all the paperwork and gave me clear instructions on how to file with the court. That made the whole process so much easier!
