What Are the Grounds for Divorce in Missouri?

Missouri is considered a no-fault divorce state. You only need to state that the marriage is "irretrievably broken" and there is no chance that the marriage will survive. You can then begin the divorce process. You do not need to spend time trying to prove that your spouse was responsible for the end of the marriage. Also note that there is a minimum requirement to be a resident of the state for at least 90 days prior to filing your divorce case in court.

What Counts as an Irretrievably Broken Marriage?

In St. Louis, residents are able to file for divorce on the grounds that the marriage is irretrievably broken. Irretrievably broken means that due to present or past events, the marriage cannot be reconciled. Even if one spouse disagrees, the judge can still grant the divorce if sufficient evidence is presented. Some of the reasons that a spouse can use to file for divorce on these grounds include adultery, abandonment, voluntary separation lasting over a year, involuntary separation lasting over two years, and incompatibility.
