Tennessee is a “no-fault” divorce state and many divorces are filed this way. However, it does allow divorces on either a fault or a no-fault basis.
The grounds for no-fault divorce are as follows:
Some of the reasons that an individual would file a divorce based on fault include adultery, a felony conviction, malicious desertion or abandonment, a hidden second marriage, inhumane treatment, abuse, and other such grounds.
You do not have to go through a waiting period before filing for divorce. At any point during a marriage, one of the spouses may file for divorce if that spouse has been a legal resident of Tennessee for at least six months.
If your spouse won’t sign divorce papers and won’t agree on all the terms of a divorce or the terms of a parenting plan (if children are involved), the divorce is referred to as a contested divorce. In this case, you will likely have to get a divorce on “fault” grounds. A divorce lawyer from our firm can explain your options.
At Gordon Law Group, we avoid long and drawn out cases if at all possible. We strive to settle things through negotiation or mediation, but are equipped to take your case to court if needed. You can trust us to handle your case while prioritizing your best interests from start to finish.
