Experienced Divorce Lawyers
When you get married in Mississippi, a binding legal relationship is created that continues indefinitely. The marital relationship can only be terminated by: (1) a no fault divorce; (2) a fault based divorce; or (3) death.
A no-fault divorce is available only if both sides agree. This is also known as an irreconcilable differences divorce. It is almost always the the cheapest and fastest path to a divorce. This type of divorce can usually be finalized in 60 to 90 days.
A fault based divorce is more time consuming and expensive unless the allegation of fault is admitted. To obtain a contested fault based divorce, you must prove the existence of one of the statutory grounds.
In some situations, discretion and continued work towards possible reconciliation is the best path forward. In other situations, there is no hope for reconciliation. Regardless, we have the experience to successfully guide you through the entire process.
