How Custody Works In Alabama

In Alabama, if you and your co-parent cannot come to an agreement on the terms of your custody arrangement, a judge will be the one to make the final call. This isn’t ideal as no one knows your children better than you do, which is why our Arab custody lawyers prefer to help you negotiate the terms of custody.

However, we understand this isn’t possible for couples with extenuating circumstances, like one parent having a history of domestic violence, substance abuse, or something else. If this isn’t the case, and you and your co-parent are on two very different wave-lengths, a judge will evaluate a number of factors to determine what kind of arrangement will best suit your children’s needs. These factors include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Your children’s relationship with you and their other parent, and siblings
  • Work schedules
  • Physical and mental health of both you and your co-parent
  • Plans for daycare/childcare
  • And more

What Are The Different Types Of Custody? 

There are two types of custody in Alabama: legal and physical. Legal custody refers to which parent will have the decision-making responsibility when it comes to important matters in the child(ren)’s lives, including education, religion, healthcare, and more. Physical custody refers to which parent the child or children will physically reside with the majority of the time. Both types of custody can be shared jointly, or one parent can have sole custody of either kind. It’s important to note that even if physical custody is shared jointly, it doesn’t mean that the children will actually divide their time exactly 50/50.
