Nicknamed The Cave State, Missouri has numerous caves and ideal divorce laws if your marriage has caved in. Here, divorce is called the Dissolution of Marriage.

To file for divorce in Missouri, you or your spouse must have been a resident or stationed in Missouri as a military member for at least 90 days before filing.1

Missouri is exclusively a no-fault divorce state with no traditional fault-based grounds. Missouri divorce laws only recognize one ground for divorce which is the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage.2 However, a judge will allow a fault-based divorce if the spouse(defendant) does not believe the marriage is irretrievably broken.3

Missouri is an equitable distribution state, and only property acquired during the marriage is subject to division. Missouri divorce laws attempt to divide marital property in a manner that is both fair and equitable. The courts will consider factors such as non-monetary contributions, economic misconduct, contributions to a partner’s education, among others as defined in Missouri law. 4
