Alabama Child Custody Laws

HomeAlabama Child CustodyAlabama Child Custody Laws

In general, the courts under Alabama Child Custody Laws encourage joint custody of the child to both the parents in divorce, provided they can offer enough support to the child in all the possible means.

It is to extend and allow a meaningful contact of the child with both the parents.

Factors considered for the custody:

Courts in Alabama consider a set of factors before deciding upon the child custody during divorce.

They often include:

  • Child’s age and gender
  • Child’s preference (only if s/he is mature enough to decide)
  • Child’s needs
  • Each parent’s age, character, stability, capacity, relationship with the child, and the environment they provide at home
