Alabama Uncontested Divorce Checklist

uncontested-divorce-checklist

If you and your spouse want to make your divorce as easy and inexpensive as possible, then the uncontested divorce is the way to go in Alabama. Even though your marriage may be over, for the uncontested divorce to work, you and your spouse will have to come together one more time and agree on the terms.

People regularly consult with me and they don’t know where to start. The following is a list of the items the two of you may have to decide how to handle depending on the facts of the case:

How to Get an Uncontested Divorce: A Checklist

  1. Division of Debt

  2. The marital home

  3. Division of other real property

  4. Division of personal property

  5. Division of retirement assets

  6. Division of liquid cash accounts

  7. Life insurance

  8. Health insurance

  9. Alimony

  10. Custody

  11. Visitation

  12. Child support

  13. Tax issues

  14. Payment of non-covered medical bills for the children

  15. Division of stocks, bonds, and other investments

  16. Division of automobiles, or other forms of transport

  17. Ownership and payment for time shares

  18. Parenting Plan

This list of things to consider in an uncontested divorce is a starting point to use when you and your spouse are beginning to discuss the terms of the agreement. There are, of course, other things you need to discuss for an Alabama divorce depending on the circumstances. Even in the most uncomplicated case, it often pays off to have legal counsel review the terms and give you input on the practicality of your agreement. I’ve seen some agreements that simply aren’t workable but the parties, not having experienced divorce before, can’t see the flaws in the terms until they have legal counsel.
