Lawmakers To Discuss Divorce

KSAL StaffFebruary 9, 2015

Divorce is expected to be the focus of two days of informational Legislative committee hearings on marriage.

Rep. Jan Pauls says one of the key questions to be addressed is whether Kansas has made it too easy for couples to get divorced, especially in cases that don’t involve domestic violence. The Hutchinson Republican serves on the House Federal and State Affairs Committee.

Paul told the Lawrence Journal-World that some people have suggested it would be helpful to have counseling requirements, or extended or longer waiting periods to end non-abusive marriages.

Kansas is what’s considered a “no fault” divorce state, which means that either party in a marriage can petition for divorce. The person seeking the divorce doesn’t have to prove that there are legal grounds for it beyond “incompatibility.”
