Grounds for Divorce

To start a divorce, spouses must have grounds established by law.

In the state of Mississippi, both fault-based and no-fault grounds for divorce are recognized. Fault grounds include impotence, adultery, incarceration, willful desertion for at least one year, alcohol or drug addiction, cruel treatment, insanity for up to three years, incest, and the fact that the wife became pregnant by another man, and the husband did not know about it. These grounds assume that the defendant is considered guilty of the marriage breakdown, so the plaintiff must provide strong evidence to prove the other spouse's fault before the court.

"Irreconcilable differences" is the only no-fault ground for divorce in Mississippi. This ground does not require evidence.

Our smooth breakup allowed us to file for uncontested divorce and we just decided to arrange it as simply as possible. Online divorce seemed to be a good idea, and now I'm sure we did it right. All the papers were prepared with no issues and I'm pleased with the price. Thanks.

I think that all the papers related to a certain county with its own legal nuances would be prepared correctly only by a Mississippi-based company. So that's why I used mississippionlinedivorce and I was really satisfied. My divorce papers were completed in a timely manner and I had no troubles with filing. That was a really smooth process and you can be confident with your filing.

It always seemed to me that divorce must be a much more complicated process. I couldn't imagine how I would cope with that. Where do I get all those papers, how to fill them out and where to go and what to do? So, I was really glad I found mississippionlinedivorce.com and they took care of all the paperwork and gave me clear instructions on how to file with the court. That made the whole process so much easier!
