Some Commonly Asked Questions About Divorce

What are the Grounds for Divorce in Tennessee?

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:

  • Irreconcilable differences
  • Separate living for a minimum of two years if the couple has no children

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.

Is There a Waiting Period for Divorce in Tennessee?

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.

What Happens if My Spouse Won’t Sign Divorce Papers?

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.
