What Happens Now?

Most people going through a divorce are doing it for the first time. Let us help guide you through the process.

Do you qualify for a divorce in Missouri?

In Missouri, divorce petitioners must prove that their marriage is irretrievably broken in order to get a divorce. In some cases, Missouri courts might demand mediation for couples who may be able to work out an agreement outside of court. Even if you do not believe that your marriage is irretrievably broken, a court may still decide to grant your spouse's wish to be divorced.

Missouri laws state that in order to file the divorce petition, both spouses need to state under oath or affirmation that the marriage is irretrievably broken or one of the parties has to state this and the other party must not deny it. Neither party needs to cite fault in Missouri.
