Grounds for Divorce Massachusetts

Divorcing couple

In Massachusetts, there are several different options for how you can file for divorce – fault, no-fault, contested, or uncontested. You need to choose which options best aligns with your situation before you file.

If you are filing for a fault divorce, that means you are attributing the end of your marriage to your spouse and you must provide grounds for the divorce. There are seven main grounds for divorce in Massachusetts:

  • Abusive treatment
  • Adultery
  • Confirmed habits of intoxication
  • Cruel refusal to provide support
  • Desertion
  • Impotency
  • Prison sentences of 5+ years

A Worcester County divorce lawyer can help you understand which divorce filing is for you. The team at Burke Levy, P.C. can help you navigate this process and can put together a compelling case for a fault divorce.
