What are grounds for divorce in Alabama?

In Alabama you can either file for divorce based on certain grounds or, if you have been separated for two years, you can use this separation as a basis for filing. Grounds for divorce include:

- Adultery
- Abandonment or desertion
- Imprisonment of two years, with a sentence of at least seven years
- “Crimes against nature”
- Drug or alcohol addiction
-  Incompatibility of temperament such that the parties can no longer live together
- Mental illness
- Irretrievable breakdown of the marriage
- If the wife was pregnant at the time of marriage without the husband’s knowledge
- Violence

As your advocate, we consider the ramifications of applicable grounds for divorce, so we can determine if any one particularly works in your favor. Likewise, if you are being sued for a particular ground, we outline the ramifications as they pertain to your case.
