Divorce has become a part of life in this country. It may be necessary to clear away a problem that blocks you from leading a better life. The biggest divorce we know of was when our country divorced itself from England in 1776. Divorce is not pleasant, nor is it easy, and some are more unpleasant than others.

Our website describes many aspects of divorce; some will apply to you and some will not. However, understanding which aspects apply to your case will help you avoid and prepare you for dealing against upcoming problems.

What Are the Grounds for Divorce in Tennessee?

You may file for divorce based on either fault-based or no-fault based divorce. For a no-fault divorce, you would only need to claim that there are “irreconcilable differences between the two of you. The marriage has come to a point where you can no longer continue living as a married couple. You do not need to allege that your spouse did something “wrong,” that led to its demise.

Additionally, you would need to fulfill these requirements:

  • You and your spouse have lived separately and apart for at least two or more years
  • You have not been living as a married couple during this two-year period
  • You do not share any minor children

You will need to wait at least 60 days after filing your divorce claim before the judge can issue a final decree on your divorce, as well. If you have any children under 18. If you have any further questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact Rice Divorce Team today!
