Uncontested divorce in Mississippi

In order to legally end your marriage in Mississippi, you can file for one of the following:

  • Contested divorce. The choice of this option is inevitable for those couples that were unable to come to an agreement concerning divorce-related issues and, therefore, need to involve legal experts to help them. They do not just have to hire lawyers to defend their interests in court but also testify in front of a judge during multiple court hearings if the case proves to be complex. It’s no wonder that a contested divorce is considered the most expensive and stressful way of ending a marriage.
  • Uncontested dissolution. Spouses who have managed to reach a consensus and just need to end their marriage can opt for an uncontested divorce. As they have no disputes concerning custody and support, property division, or alimony, a couple does not need to hire a lawyer or attend a lot of hearings. This type of dissolution is much cheaper and faster than a contested one, which makes it a more desirable option for divorcees.

However, even if the second way of ending a marriage works for you, you need to decide how you are going to deal with divorce paperwork. As there are a lot of legal forms required for each specific case, it is quite easy to find some incorrect or old ones on the Web and get a court rejection upon the submission. Luckily, there is a way to avoid such a problem by using OnlineDivorcer.

We are a leading online divorce company with 12 years of experience that has managed to help thousands of couples to end their marriage without any hassle. Ordering from us, you will get a full packet of up-to-date divorce forms prepared for your specific case.

Filing for divorce in Mississippi without a lawyer

Here are the steps you need to take to file for an uncontested divorce in MS without an attorney by your side:

  • Check whether you meet the residency requirements of the state. In Mississippi, at least one party must have resided in the state for 6 months before filing.
  • Prepare and complete all the required divorce forms.
  • File the forms in the chancery court in the county where you and your spouse reside and pay the filing fee.
  • Serve the documents to your spouse. There are several serving options in Mississippi: by a sheriff’s service, by a process server, any third party over 18, or via certified mail. Alternatively, your spouse may agree to be served by you and sign an acknowledgment form.
  • Attend a court hearing. You need to be present in court so that a judge may check if your paperwork is in order and issue the final decision.
  • Wait until the court issues the decree of dissolution.

Getting a divorce in Mississippi with a child

Parents who have minor kids and are filing for divorce need to know the following before starting the process:

  • The MS courts are inclined to grant custody based on the best interest of a child.
  • Both parents in the state have equal rights to custody. That is why while making a decision, the judges consider the following factors: age and health of a kid, each parent’s will, fitness, and readiness to care for a child, what relationships a child has with both parents, etc.
  • There are two types of custody that can be granted in MS: physical (whom a kid will live with) and legal (who will make vital decisions for a child).
  • Both parents can have physical and legal custody. However, if the court eventually grants custody to one parent only, the second parent will receive visitation rights.
  • Child support is usually paid to the parent who has custody.
