The dissolution of the marriage process in Missoula, MT can be far more straightforward than in other states around the country due to it being a no-fault divorce state. In every divorce proceeding, it is necessary for the couple to show the court the identified legal grounds as to the reasons to terminate a marriage. In a no-fault divorce, the reason is usually irreconcilable differences rather than marital misconduct. Though fault-divorce is possible particularly when involving the safety of children, the no-fault divorce is the standard and most common form of divorce in Montana.
There are also alternatives and benefits to having a legal separation before filing a petition for divorce. While divorce may officially end the marriage contract, the couple may still have ongoing legal arrangements to be resolved regarding child custody, support, and maintenance, including counseling. However, in a situation where there are no factors of disagreement between the parties, and a mutual agreement can be made, Montana law does allow something called an uncontested divorce.
