Mississippi Divorce Laws

Mississippi recognizes a no-fault ground for divorce, meaning it isn’t necessary to prove the other committed some type of misconduct in order to dissolve a marriage. As long as you meet the residency requirements and can prove irreconcilable differences with your spouse, obtaining a divorce is not difficult. However, in addition to dissolving the marriage, there are several issues that must also be addressed as part of the divorce process.

These issues include the following:

Unless the parties agree on all of these matters, the judge will decide them based on the evidence and arguments presented in court. In every one of these areas, the judge has a great deal of authority and discretion in deciding how to rule. Whether negotiating a settlement with your spouse or litigating issues in court, it is essential to be represented by knowledgeable divorce lawyers with courtroom experience who can adequately address your interests. The decisions made in a divorce decree can affect you and your children for years to come; it is crucial to get it done right at the start to ensure that your rights are protected now and into the future.
