State Divorce Laws

These laws have been compiled directly from the most recently-available statute books and updates for each state. Every effort has been made to assure that the information contained in these pages is accurate and complete. Please remember, laws are subject to constant change. Therefore, those legal points which are particularly important in your situation should be checked directly an attorney or with the appropriate state law book to be certain that the law has not changed. This information is not intended to be professional legal advice or to take the place of legal advice, but it can point you in the right direction. We're all in this together, and we are invested in your well-being.
The correct terminology for each state was used in these page links. However, some states use certain language interchangeably. In those states, the most commonly-used language was stated. Although it has been simplified to some extent, you will find that the language in these pages is somewhat complicated. This is due to the fact that much of the language in the pages has been taken directly from the laws and statutes of each state. We apologize for this. We feel, however, that, as a reference, the technical details of the laws should be provided.
