Divorce of Irreconcilable Differences
Seeking a Qualified Divorce Lawyer in Jackson?
Mississippi is one of the few states that has yet to enact a no fault divorce. This type of divorce allows for a legal divorce when at least one of the parties can prove that the marriage is beyond repair. Mississippi’s modified version of no fault divorce is known as a divorce of irreconcilable differences. To obtain a divorce on the grounds of irreconcilable differences, both spouses must consent to the divorce and the petition must be on file for 60 days before it can be granted.
Under these grounds, the parties agree most commonly on property distribution, child custody, and alimony before a divorce can be granted. However, if the parties cannot agree on the issues, then a judge will need to decide the disputed issues if the parties approve this action. The judge has no authority to decide any issues in a divorce of irreconcilable differences unless the parties have agreed to such in writing.
Even if both parties agree to part ways, divorce is never simply or easy. Call our trusted Jackson divorce attorneys at the Law Offices of Malouf & Malouf, PLLC, at (601) 522-2222 for guidance with your divorce.
