Irreconcilable Differences Is One Of Many Reasons For Divorce In Mississippi

Divorce in this state can be a “no-fault’ divorce, or one based simply on irreconcilable differences. However, a Mississippi divorce can be also due to several other grounds such as:

  • Criminal conviction
  • Domestic violence
  • Cruelty
  • Desertion
  • Alcohol and substance abuse
  • Impotency
  • Adultery
  • Incurable insanity
  • In line of consanguinity

Other reasons for divorce include discovering that a wife was pregnant at the time of marriage or one party’s prior marriage was undissolved.

Whatever the reason and wherever you are in the process of filing for or responding to a divorce complaint, working with an experienced family law attorney can ensure the process avoids as many pitfalls and delays as possible.
