When to Release/Withdraw a Lis Pendens in Alabama

A lis pendens is filed to give notice that a suit is pending on a specific property. That notice is filed in probate court, in the county(s) where the land is located. Upon settlement or termination of the case and by court order it is customary to file a "Withdrawal of Lis Pendens" document. Usually within 30 days of such event. [See Alabama Code 35-4-136. Record of termination of action.]

It was everything that I needed. The county clerk's office kept telling me to get a lawyer for this form, but I didn't need one. Saved myself hundreds of dollars. I've used them many times.
