The process of getting divorced in Alabama is complicated emotionally, legally and financially. Splitting property that has been accumulated during divorce is often a particularly contentious aspect of the dissolution of a marriage. However, it is possible for a couple going through divorce to pursue the division of property on their terms rather than on a judge's terms.
Even when a couple strives to save their marriage, sometimes their efforts are simply not enough. In these situations, divorce is necessary. One of the biggest myths surrounding the dissolution of a marriage in Alabama and elsewhere is that the money in a spouse's own bank account will remain his or hers following the divorce.
