Can You Stop an Alabama Divorce?

Posted by Steven D. Eversole | Oct 11, 2007 | 0 Comments

There are times when clients ask me if I can stop their divorce from happening.  The short answer to this question is simple, no you cannot stop a divorce.  When one party is determined to get divorced, the other party can do several things, but they cannot stop the divorce from occurring.  You can slow down a divorce significantly, you can make the divorce hurt more and you can make it cost more, but you cannot stop an Alabama divorce.  The nature of modern divorce law is that anyone who wants a divorce can get one.  There has been steady criticism of this practice, many people correlating the no fault divorce laws with the rise in divorce rates.  However, in Alabama, and indeed, throughout most of the country, you cannot stop a divorce from happening when the other side is determined to divorce.
