We calculate the time of alignment of the magnetic dipole moment with the axis of rotation. For alignment we take into acount the electromagnetic torque acting on the magnetic dipole moment, the frictional torque between the crust and the core and gravitational effects. The anomalous electromagnetic torque, usually neglected in the a rigid star model, here plays a crucial role for the alignment of the magnetic dipole.
