Tennessee Divorce Laws
Like most states, Tennessee has statutorily defined “fault-based” grounds for divorce such as adultery, cruelty or abandonment, as well a “no-fault” divorce option, which can be used if spouses have “irreconcilable differences,” or if there are no minor children and the spouses have lived apart for at least two years. The waiting period to get a divorce based on irreconcilable differences is 60 days if there are no minor children from the marriage, or 90 days if there are.
In either case, no divorce will be granted until major issues related to the division of marital assets and debts, alimony (spousal support) and child custody/parenting time (visitation) have been resolved. If any of these issues are contested, Tennessee law requires spouses to go through the mediation process before a trial date may be set.
