Do I need a lawyer to get divorced in Alabama?
Updated: Feb 14
It is not required to have a lawyer to get divorced in Alabama, but it is recommended. Whether it’s something as benign as fixing a leaky faucet or as complex and important as educating our children, we enlist the help of professionals on an almost daily basis. When it comes to a divorce or even a related Child Custody agreement or schedule, it’s foolish, frankly, to try to save a few bucks to “do it yourself.”
Divorce can be a complex legal process, and a lawyer can help you navigate the legal system and protect your rights. It is possible to represent yourself in a divorce, but it is crucial to be familiar with the law and procedures involved. If you choose to represent yourself, it is a good idea to educate yourself about the divorce process and your rights under Alabama law. (That said, some of the smartest folks who have ever lived have gotten divorced, and they used lawyers. Sooo….)
