Alabama, known as the "Heart of Dixie", is located southeastern United States and is bordered by Tennessee, Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi. The state has over 4.7 million citizens, which gives it the 23rd largest population of the fifty states, and it was the 22nd state to join the Union. Alabama's state bird is the Yellowhammer and the state flower is the Camellia, both of which can be found throughout the state. Montgomery serves as the state capital and its center of politics, while Birmingham boasts the largest population of any city in Alabama and is the state's transportation and economic hub.
Unfortunately, marriages do not always work out, and when the time comes to end your marriage, you want a professional Alabama divorce lawyer on your side to make sure that the legal process operates smoothly. When attempting to end a marriage, the state requires that at least one spouse be an Alabama citizen, the petition for divorce must be filed in the correct county, and you must notify the other spouse that the petition was filed. Because there are complex jurisdictional issues involved in merely filing the petition, consultation with an attorney is a must before beginning the process.
Generally speaking, Alabama favors collaborative divorce proceedings as they place the least amount of stress on the parties and do not involve the courts. Cooperative divorces unfold without litigation, and are often the best way to maintain effective lines of communication between the parties so that a suitable agreement can be reached. Eversole Law offers cooperative divorce services, and is in the process of having our attorneys certified to become Collaborative Divorce Counselors by meeting the requirements set forth by Alabama's Collaborative Divorce Council.
