When you get married in Mississippi, a legal relationship is created that continues indefinitely. This relationship can only be terminated by: (1) a no fault divorce; (2) a fault based divorce; or (3) death.
A no-fault divorce is only available if both sides are in agreement. It is also known as an irreconcilable differences divorce. It is almost always the least expensive and fastest way to a divorce. It can often be completed in 60 to 90 days.
Fault Based Divorce
A fault based divorce is almost always more time consuming and expensive. To obtain a contested fault based divorce, you must prove the existence of one of the statutory grounds.
In some situations, reconciliation may be 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.
