When filing for divorce, couples in Indiana may file under no fault or fault grounds for divorce.
In a no fault divorce, neither spouse is deemed responsible by the court for the end of the marriage, and the couple files under the ground of an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. During a no fault divorce, the couple will need to recognize any Indiana divorce waiting periods set by state divorce laws.
When one spouse is at fault for the divorce, the filing spouse may choose to file for a fault divorce on the fault-based grounds accepted by the court. Indiana divorce courts accept the fault-based grounds of felony conviction, impotence or incurable insanity for at least two years.
