Requirements for a Fulton Divorce

Under Missouri law, in order to seek a divorce in Fulton, Missouri, you must have been a resident of the state for at least 90 days before filing a petition for the dissolution of marriage, and you must bring your divorce case forward on a no-fault basis. To be clear, rather than raising any issues of fault that led to the divorce, you only need to show that you and your spouse have irreconcilable differences since Missouri is a no-fault state for divorce purposes.

Contested Versus Uncontested Divorce in Fulton

Divorces in Missouri are uncontested or contested. An uncontested divorce is one in which the parties have reached an agreement about all issues, and a contested divorce is a case in which one or more issues are in dispute. 

Uncontested divorces tend to go much faster since a court does not need to hear both sides of an issue in order to resolve a dispute. Even with an uncontested divorce, you must wait at least 30 days after filing your petition for the dissolution of marriage for your divorce to be granted. Many divorces will take significantly longer than 30 days after the filing, although some uncontested divorces may be quite quick. 

Even if you begin the process with one or more disputes still in existence, you may be able to resolve them by going through family mediation so that you can have a faster and less costly divorce case.
