An irreconcilable differences divorce is one in which more specific grounds for divorce do not need to be proven. This is the typical basis for an uncontested divorce in Tennessee, and similar to the concept of a “no-fault” divorce in other jurisdictions.
Even if your lawsuit begins as a contested divorce, in negotiating a settlement, the parties may very well agree to enter into a marital dissolution agreement and to conclude their marriage on the basis of irreconcilable differences. Although a divorce action necessarily involves a lot of emotion and disappointment, once the parties get past their initial frustration, many find that an irreconcilable differences divorce is the most effective, efficient and economical basis to end their marriage.
