Grounds for Divorce in Massachusetts

Massachusetts provides both fault and no-fault options for divorce. If you file for a no-fault divorce, you will not be required to provide a legal reason for ending your marriage. Also known as an “Irretrievable Breakdown of Marriage,” you can file this complaint on your own or jointly. Ultimately, if you want a divorce, your spouse cannot prevent you from obtaining one.

Alternatively, you can also file for a divorce based on one or more grounds of fault. Below are some of the grounds for divorce under Massachusetts law:

  • Impotency
  • Desertion
  • Cruel and abusive treatment
  • Adultery
  • Refusal to provide support
  • Substance abuse
  • A prison sentence greater than 5 years
