Common Causes Of Divorce

Today, most divorces in Mississippi are granted due to irreconcilable differences, otherwise known as a “no-fault” divorce. When parties are not in agreement to get a divorce, however, there is a need to demonstrate that there are requisite grounds for the divorce.

I’m Gene Barton, a divorce lawyer serving the Chickasaw County, Mississippi, area. I can help you at every step of the way as you pursue a divorce. From helping you establish grounds for divorce to resolving divorce-related issues such as child custody and support, I will focus on obtaining a favorable resolution.

Grounds For Divorce In Mississippi

Grounds for divorce in Mississippi are:

  • Natural impotency
  • A cheating spouse
  • Being sentenced to jail time and not being pardoned before being sent there
  • Willful and continued desertion for one year
  • A drinking problem by either spouse
  • Habitual and excessive use of drugs
  • Domestic violence
  • Insanity at the time of marriage
  • Marriage to some other person at the time of the pretended marriage
  • Pregnancy by another person at the time of the marriage
  • Related to each other within their family heritage

We can discuss what each of these grounds means in greater detail at our first consultation. In some cases, a psychological exam or medical evidence may be needed. While some grounds for divorce are more difficult to prove than others, I will do everything in my power to present your case and find a solution that is in your best interests.
