Frequently Asked Questions
How long does a criminal case take in Alabama?
In Alabama, the time can vary for the duration of a criminal case. They can take a few days, weeks, or months, or even many years. A criminal case can take years to come off the Grand Jury through an indictment. The severity of the charge, the county you are charged, and trial strategy can all lead to extended cases.
Can you be charged in two states for the same crime?
You could be charged in two states for the same crime if you committed a part of the crime in two different states. Each state and the Federal Government can charge you with a crime under the same facts.
What is a legal separation, and is it required before I file for divorce?
A legal separation is not required before filing for divorce because legal separation is an alternative to dissembling marriage. If the court grants a legal separation, the judge will enter an order establishing the rights and responsibilities of each party, including spousal support, child support, and child custody.
Will I automatically get spousal support after my divorce?
Several factors will determine alimony in the court. For spousal support, the court must understand the need and ability to pay, future earning opportunities, each spouse’s contributions to the marriage, the age and health of each spouse, and the standard of living enjoyed throughout the marriage
How soon after my injury should I file a lawsuit?
It is best to file your claim as quickly as possible after you have experienced injury, especially if you’re receiving medical treatment for it. For most personal injury cases, the time limit in Alabama is two years, meaning you must file a lawsuit against any potential defendant within two years of the date of your accident.
Will my personal injury case go to trial?
Most cases are settled out of court, but not all filed claims will end up in court. If you cannot agree on a settlement amount out of court, you must file a personal injury lawsuit against the defendant to take them to court.
