No-Fault and Fault-Based Divorce in Mississippi
In the state of Mississippi, a divorce can be categorized in one of two ways: contested or uncontested. If a divorce is uncontested, it is considered a no-fault or irreconcilable differences divorce. To get a divorce on irreconcilable differences, both parties must agree to it. If this is your situation, we will draft your settlement agreement, which, if necessary, will properly provide for child support, custody, visitation, and property divisions. After the 60 day separation period, your divorce will be finalized.
If a divorce is contested, also known as a fault-based divorce, then your situation must be carefully evaluated and the grounds for divorce must be proven in court. Grounds for contested divorce in Mississippi include:
- Habitual and excessive use of certain narcotics
- Habitual and excessive use of alcohol
- Habitual Cruel and Inhuman Treatment
- Habitual or repeated Domestic battery
- Bigamy or incest
- Being sentenced to the penitentiary
- Other statutory grounds
