What is a no-fault divorce?
Though Mississippi does not have a truly “no-fault” divorce process, judges may grant a “no-fault” divorce to couples on the grounds that they are:
- Two legally married people who no longer wish to be married, and;
- At least one of them has resided in the state of Mississippi for at least 6 months, and;
- Neither partner formally accuses the other of breaching the marriage contract, and;
- They have jointly prepared a written statement showing that they both consent to the divorce.
Essentially, judges grant “no-fault” divorces to couples who don’t blame each other for the dissolution of their marriages—at least, not in the paperwork.
