Indiana: Grounds for Divorce in Indiana

Each state has unique grounds in which a dissolution of marriage may be granted by the court. When choosing the grounds for your dissolution of marriage, you should always remember that you must have sufficient proof to the court that your marital situation warrants a dissolution of marriage by the grounds you are requesting.

Grounds for Filing: The Petition for Dissolution of Marriage must declare the appropriate Indiana grounds upon which the dissolution of marriage is being sought. The appropriate lawful ground will be that which the parties agree upon and can substantiate, or that which the filing spouse desires to prove to the court. The dissolution of marriage grounds are as follows:

No Fault:

(1) Irretrievable breakdown of the marriage.


(1) The felony conviction of either of the parties.

(2) Impotence.

(3) Incurable insanity for a period of at least two (2) years.

(Indiana Code - Title 31 - Article 15 - Chapters: 2-3)

If you do not fall under any of the above mentioned grounds for divorce/dissolution, you most likely should consider trying to save your marriage. Many spouses find that they do not meet the requirements of a waiting period, which can be very frustrating, but it is these waiting periods that are in place in order to help prevent rash decisions to terminate a marriage.
