NOTE: Regardless of the reason of the breakdown of the marriage or the reason for filing for divorce in Mississippi, the Divorce Do It Yourself Service will do divorces on an "Agreed" basis or a “Default” basis.
An Agreed Divorce , defined by Mississippi divorce guidelines and Mississippi divorce laws, is a scenario where the spouses agree on the terms of the divorce such as Mississippi property distribution, Mississippi child support, or Mississippi child custody. Most of our clients (75%) prefer the Agreed Divorce method and both spouses sign the divorce papers and are agreed to the terms of divorce.
A Default Divorce , according to the Mississippi divorce guidelines and Mississippi divorce laws, is a divorce where the other spouse doesn’t sign the Mississippi Divorce forms or Mississippi divorce papers, he/she doesn’t do anything at all with the divorce. They simply default on the case and the spouse who files for divorce gets whatever was asked for in the original paperwork.
Sorry once again for the confusion. The no fault divorce is what I was trying to get and my spouse fought it. So my attorney tells me it now has to be a fault divorce. I have not lived with my spouse for nearly a year now. From the situation I described, I am trying to determine what fault I can base a Fault base divorce on. I attempted irroconsiable difference and my spouse fought it. And finally no I do NOT want to work it out with him, I just no longer want to be married to him.
