Alabama Residency Requirements for Divorce

In the context of filing for divorce in Alabama, residency requirements are legal stipulations that determine who is eligible to file for divorce in the state's courts.

These requirements are in place to ensure that the court has jurisdiction over the divorce case. In order to file for Divorce in Alabama, you must meet one of the three requirements:

  • The requirement is met if both parties reside in Alabama.
  • The requirement is met if the Defendant, or non-filing party, resides in Alabama.
  • If the Defendant, or non-filing spouse, does not live in Alabama, then the Petitioner, or filing party, must have been a resident of the state for a period of 6 months.

These residency requirements are crucial because they determine whether an Alabama court can consider a divorce case. Failure to meet these requirements could result in the dismissal of the divorce petition.
