Hi again. There is no statute. Like most torts, it's found in the common law (i.e., case law). Here is the Alabama Supreme Court on abuse of process:
"The elements of the tort of abuse of process are 1) the
existence of an ulterior purpose, 2) a wrongful use of
process, and 3) malice." C.C. & J., Inc. v. Hagood, 711 So.
2d 947, 950 (Ala. 1998).
So, in order to win a lawsuit for abuse of process, you'd need to prove the 3 elements above. I'll note that malicious prosecution, which is nearly identical, may also be a viable cause of action.
In order to find a good lawyer to represent you in Alabama, you should contact the Alabama State Bar's Attorney Referral Service:
I hope that helps. Please let me know if you need further clarification, and please remember to provide a positive rating via the stars (and note that your positive rating is the only way that I'll get credit for helping you, so it is much appreciated!). Thank you. :)
