What are the requirements for divorce?
In order to dissolve your marriage in Mississippi, you must meet certain requirements, including:
- At least one spouse must have been a resident of the state for at least six months before you can file.
- If you are filing based on irreconcilable differences, you can file in the county where either spouse lives, but you must wait at least sixty days for the divorce to be finalized.
- If the divorce is based on fault, it must be filed in the county of the person claiming fault grounds unless that person is not a resident of the state.
An experienced and knowledgeable Hernando divorce attorney can further explain these requirements as they guide you through your divorce.
Understanding grounds for divorce
In Mississippi, you have the option to file your divorce based on irreconcilable differences or on fault grounds. Irreconcilable differences, or no-fault grounds, means that the spouses no longer get along and both agree to the divorce. If the other issues relating to the divorce are still contested, the court will resolve those matters.
In a divorce based on fault grounds, the spouse filing for divorce must name a reason. The potential reasons for a fault divorce include:
- Criminal conviction
- Alcohol or drug abuse
- Willful desertion
- Habitual cruel and inhuman treatment
