Options for Concluding a Marriage Under Alabama Law.
Legal separation: Spouses remain legally married, but they live apart. They choose this option to work through their personal issues.
Divorce: This occurs when one or both spouses want to end the marriage. If the parties do not agree on issues related to the division of assets or child custody, a judge may resolve the dispute. If the parties agree, the judge can enter the divorce decree according to the agreed-upon terms.
Perhaps the hardest part of a divorce is deciding who will have custody of the children.
Falls into two categories where the custodian or both parents are legally allowed to make all decisions regarding the child.
One parent has custody of the child and makes all decisions regarding the child.
Both parents share the rights and responsibilities of the children.
Most of the time, cases do not reach the court, because parents are able to agree to custody arrangements on their own or resolve their differences through mediation. If the determination of custody goes to trial, you need an experienced attorney on your side.
