Divorce Law

Maine has one no-fault ground, as well as multiple fault grounds. The no-fault ground for divorce in Maine is "irreconcilable marital differences." One or both parties must either be a resident of Maine for at least six months prior to filing, be a current resident and the marriage took place in Maine, or be a resident of Maine and the grounds for divorce occurred in Maine.
