Divorce is defined as the dissolution of marriage. To file for divorce in Tennessee, the plaintiff must be a bona fide resident of the state.

While there’s never anything simple about the divorce process, all divorce cases can be put into one of two categories: uncontested divorce and contested divorce.

In an uncontested divorce, both parties are able to come to an agreement on the terms of the divorce in a quick manner with little argument. Ultimately, an uncontested divorce is almost always less expensive and takes less of an emotional toll on the parties involved.

Not all divorce cases, however, can be so easy. In contested divorce cases, seemingly small issues can become the subject of deadlocked arguments. These divorce cases are always more expensive and take more of an emotional toll on both parties, keeping them away from the goal of a clean separation.

Even if certain elements overlap, no two divorce cases are exactly the same because no two marriages are exactly the same.

The Grounds For Divorce

Like in other states, the grounds for divorce can vary in Tennessee. Some divorces are brought on by mutual understanding that a marriage can’t work, while other divorces involve behaviors that constitute fault in one or both parties.

Although the grounds for divorce can vary, there are common reasons for filing for divorce that we regularly see in our clients’ cases. These grounds for divorce include, but are not limited to:

  • Adultery
  • Cruelty
  • Drug/Alcohol Addiction
  • The Existence of a Previously Unresolved Marriage
  • “No Fault” Divorce

Many of these grounds for divorce constitute “At Fault” divorce, in which one or both of the parties is at fault for the dissolution of the marriage, such as adultery, cruelty, or drug and alcohol addiction. There are numerous “no fault” divorce cases, however, in which both parties separate from a mutual understanding that the marriage should end.

In many divorce cases, a number of these grounds are at play, and each of these grounds for divorce are handled and viewed different in the eyes of the law. If you have questions about whether or not you have grounds to file for divorce from your spouse, contact our firm today.
