What is a Contested Divorce?

Contested divorces in Mississippi are often quite stressful and emotionally charged. This type of divorce is usually granted on the following grounds:

  • Habitual cruel and inhumane treatment
  • Irreconcilable differences
  • Adultery
  • Desertion
  • Incurable insanity
  • Conviction and prison sentence
  • Natural impotency
  • Incest

Irreconcilable differences are essentially the same as a “no-fault” divorce and basically means that you and your spouse are no longer able to get along and that there is no reasonable chance of the two of you getting back together.

Additionally, there are certain issues in a contested divorce, which must be addressed, which includes:

  • Division of assets
  • Custody and visitation rights of the children
  • Spousal support
