While there are several fault-based grounds for divorce in Tennessee, "irreconcilable differences" is the "no-fault" grounds for divorce and is the most commonly used. DivorceWriter provides no-fault (uncontested) divorce forms.
Tennessee Residency Requirements
If at least one spouse has lived in Tennessee for the past 6 months, either spouse can file for divorce there. Otherwise, as long as at least one spouse was living in Tennessee when you decided to get divorced, either spouse can file for divorce there regardless of how long either of you has lived in Tennessee.
The spouse that files for divorce is the Plaintiff and the other spouse is the Defendant. Divorces are filed in the county where the Defendant lives now or where the couple last lived together. If the Defendant doesn't live in Tennessee or is currently in jail, file in the county where the Plaintiff lives.
