Alabama Civil Appeals are heard by the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals. The five judges of the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals hear appeals of civil cases, divorce appeals, child custody appeals, and workers compensation appeals. The Court has original jurisdiction in all Alabama civil appeals where the amount in controversy in the civil case is not over $50,000.00.
The Alabama Supreme Court may transfer Alabama civil appeals to be heard by the Court of Civil Appeals even where the case is originally within the jurisdiction of the Alabama Supreme Court. The Court of Civil Appeals also hears appeals from Alabama administrative agencies in which a judgment was rendered in the circuit court.
