Alabama Mediation, Counseling and Parenting Classes
Alabama Divorce Mediation:
Alabama. Code 6-6-20, which is called Mandatory Mediation Prior to Trial, provides for mandatory divorce mediation when 1) the parties agree; 2) one party requests it (and agrees to pay for it); 3) the court orders it (if no party requests it). The court does not order mediation when domestic violence is present in the case.
There is no provision for mandatory counseling in Alabama.
Alabama Parenting Class:
Alabama is considering a mandatory parenting class for divorcing parents. The mandatory class for couples with children younger than 16 years of age would be a four-hour class to increase parent's sensitivity to their children's needs during a divorce or separation proceeding.
