Grounds for a Fort Mill Divorce

There are five different ways that you can pursue your Fort Mill divorce. One of these allows you to divorce without either party being at fault. The other four require that your spouse did something wrong. However, all five will get you divorced.

The grounds for a Fort Mill divorce are:

  • Living separate and apart and without cohabitation for one year
  • Adultery
  • Desertion
  • Physical cruelty
  • Habitual drunkenness and drug abuse

The ground you choose to pursue could make a difference when it comes to the consequences of divorce, but, your primary concern is getting the divorce. Thus, our family law attorneys can look at your case and determine which grounds you are eligible for and what defenses your spouse may be able to raise.

Consequences of a Divorce
