What Are the Grounds for Divorce in Iowa?

Iowa is a no-fault divorce state, which means that a couple can file for divorce based on irreconcilable differences. In order to file for divorce in Iowa, you must have resided in the state for at least one year. If you and your spouse live in different counties, the residency requirement is three months. It is important to note that Iowa courts will not consider evidence of marital misconduct when making decisions about property division, child custody, or alimony.

How Is Property Divided in a Divorce in Iowa?

Iowa is an equitable distribution state, which means that all marital assets are divided fairly but not necessarily equally. If the court finds that one spouse is at fault for the divorce, they may take that into consideration when making a property division award. The court will also consider the following factors:

  • Each spouse's contribution to the marriage
  • The length of the marriage
  • The age and health of each spouse
  • The earning capacity of each spouse
  • Each spouse's financial needs
  • Each spouse's income and property
  • The tax consequences of the property division

Iowa law requires that all property be divided in a divorce. This includes all assets and debts acquired during the marriage, regardless of whose name is on them.
