File for Divorce Online in Mississippi Without a Lawyer


In Mississippi, filing for divorce without a lawyer is a 100% legit option, called Pro Se divorce in legal terms. Although it is not recommended in high-conflict, contested divorces, the spouses who apply for an uncontested divorce do not necessarily have to address a law firm to prepare for their dissolution of marriage.

Self-representing litigants can select and fill out all the needed divorce forms on their own or use online divorce services to make things easier and save time. Mississippi Online Divorce is a top-notch paperwork preparation service that helps complete the divorce papers in only two business days for just $139.

Once the paperwork is ready, the further steps to getting a divorce are the spouses' responsibility if they refuse legal aid.

To start a divorce in Mississippi, the plaintiff (or both spouses together if filing for a simplified divorce) must file a petition and other initial divorce forms with the Chancery Court Clerk's office in the county where either spouse lives.

Besides, the plaintiff must pay court fees when filing divorce papers. The standard cost is about $150 in Mississippi, yet it can vary depending on the county. In addition to filing fees, service fees are charged in case of a sole divorce application.

Do-It-Yourself Divorce in Mississippi


Generally, DIY divorce in Mississippi requires the same steps as a legally assisted process:

1. Select and fill out the necessary divorce forms

To start a divorce the plaintiff typically must fill out the following initial divorce forms:

  • Bill of Complaint for Divorce (or Joint Complaint for Absolute Divorce)
  • Verification
  • Financial Statement
  • Marital Settlement Agreement (required for a simplified divorce)
  • Acknowledgment, Acceptance of Service and Appearance

2. File for divorce

The plaintiff (or both spouses together if filing a Joint Complaint) need to sign and file the above divorce documents with the Chancery Court Clerk's office in the county where either party resides.

3. Serve the divorce papers to the defendant

If filing a sole application for divorce, the plaintiff must deliver the copies of divorce papers to the defendant within 120 days after the commencement of the action.

In Mississippi, the service of process can be accomplished by one of the following methods:

  • by having the defendant sign an Acknowledgment of Service form (the plaintiff can hand this form personally or mail it);
  • personal service by any person who is over 18 years old and not a party to the case;
  • by sheriff;
  • by a private process server.

Please note that the sheriff's office and private process servers charge additional fees.

4. Waiting period

Once all the divorce papers are filed, Mississippi requires a mandatory sixty-day waiting period before a no-fault divorce based on irreconcilable differences can be finalized.

5. Finalize a divorce

After sixty days from filing the petition, the court can enter a final divorce judgment. In an uncontested divorce, the spouses usually are not required to attend court hearings.

Instead, the judge shall review all the submitted divorce forms to ensure that everything is completed correctly and approve the spouses' Marital Settlement Agreement as long as it is fair and reasonable.

We provide you with:
  • All Required Mississippi State Forms.
  • Mississippi-Specific Court Filing Instructions.
  • Unlimited Revisions for as long as your account is active.

Getting a Divorce With Children in Mississippi


The spouses who have minor children can determine their parental rights and liabilities by themselves or through mediation or counseling sessions. However, if they cannot reach 
an agreement, the court makes decisions for kids at its discretion.

In such an event, Mississippi courts are guided by the "best interests of the child" principle and consider all the relevant factors of a particular divorce case. These factors include but are not limited to:

  • the child's age;
  • mental and physical health of all parties involved;
  • each parent's moral fitness;
  • each parent's willingness and ability to provide primary child care;
  • the child's relationship with each parent;
  • the child's adjustment to their home, school, and community;
  • the child's custodial wishes, if the child is 12 years or older;
  • each parent's employment and respective responsibilities, and more.

Mississippi courts typically encourage the parents to share custody unless proven that it may be harmful to the child.

Both physical and legal custody can be joint (shared between the parents):

  • Joint physical custody means that the child spends substantial time with each parent.
  • Legal custody refers to each parent's right to make decisions regarding the child's education, healthcare, religious upbringing, etc.

Residency Requirements in MS

To be eligible to divorce in Mississippi, a couple must meet the state residency requirements.

According to Mississippi Family Law, at least one spouse must have been a state resident for at least six months before filing for divorce.

If either party is stationed in the state as a member of the US armed services, the spouses are also considered Mississippi actual bona fide residents.

How Long Does It Take to Get a Divorce in Mississippi

There are a lot of factors that can impact the length of divorce, including the type of divorce, the time the spouses need to come up with a Settlement Agreement, court backlogs, and any unique circumstances of each couple.

However, as Mississippi has a mandatory sixty-day waiting period for all uncontested divorces based on irreconcilable differences, the minimum possible timeframe is defined by this requirement.

In fact, even the most straightforward divorce typically takes more than sixty days because the court needs additional time to review all the submitted forms and documents and enter a divorce decree.

Thus, on average, an uncontested divorce in Mississippi takes about 3-4 months. On the contrary, contested divorces, despite not requiring a waiting period, usually take about 12 months or longer.
