My spouse has told me she will never “give” me a divorce. Can I get one in Louisiana anyway?

My spouse has told me she will never “give” me a divorce. Can I get one in Louisiana anyway?

Yes. Louisiana does not require that your spouse agree to a divorce. If your spouse threatens to not “give” you a divorce, know that in Louisiana this is likely to be an idle threat without any basis in the law.

Under Louisiana law, to obtain a divorce you must be able to prove that you and your spouse have lived separate and apart continuously for the required period of time. In short, it is not necessary to have your spouse agree to the divorce or to allege the specific difficulties that arose during the marriage to obtain a divorce in Louisiana.
