Grounds for Divorce
If the parties are able to reach agreements on all of the terms of the divorce and execute a Marital Dissolution Agreement, then the parties will be granted a divorce on the grounds of Irreconcilable Differences. If Husband and Wife are unable to agree, then the case will proceed as a contested divorce and each party will have to prove grounds for divorce. These grounds include—Adultery, Desertion, Cruel and inhumane treatment, Conviction of a felony accompanied by a sentence of confinement in the penitentiary, Habitual drunkenness or abuse of narcotic drugs. There is catchall fault grounds listed in the law “Inappropriate Marital Conduct” which may be written in a Complaint to show that the party filing has grounds but prefers not to enumerate them.
