What Are My Options for Getting a Divorce?
You have the option to sue your spouse for a divorce on a "fault ground" which you will be required to prove in court. Mississippi recognizes 12 fault grounds:
If contested, divorces on fault grounds usually take longer and are more expensive than divorces on Irreconcilable Differences. Fortunately, many divorce cases that begin on fault grounds end up being compromised and settled on grounds of Irreconcilable Differences.
In order to file for divorce, one spouse must be a resident of Mississippi for at least six months before filing for divorce. However, for a divorce action, a person who is in the armed forces and stationed in Mississippi is considered to be a resident.
