Nope. If you believe the marriage is “irretrievably broken,” this will generally suffice for purposes of filing a divorce petition in a Kentucky court. Conceivably, if an issue is raised, you could also be required to swear under oath that there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation, even if the court were to order you to attend marriage counseling with your spouse. Speaking of which, court-ordered marital counseling is not very common and usually only occurs if one spouse asks for it. In other words, Kentucky is generally a “no-fault” state, meaning you do not have to prove either spouse did anything wrong to get a divorce. Pursuant to Kentucky state statutes, fault is only relevant in very limited circumstances in a Kentucky divorce case.
