Divorce Law

Grounds for divorce in South Dakota include "no-fault" grounds of irreconcilable differences. Fault grounds may include adultery, extreme cruelty, willful desertion, willful neglect, habitual intemperance, and conviction of a felony. The party filing for divorce must be a resident of the state (or stationed in the state while a member of the armed forces) and remain a resident until the divorce decree is final.
