                                                                    CRUEL AND INHUMAN TREATMENT

***DUE TO THE "COMPLEXITY" OF OBTAINING A DIVORCE ON THE GROUND OF CRUEL AND INHUMAN TREATMENT (AS
EXPLAINED BELOW)
, APS WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO TAKE YOUR CASE. IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR AN EASIER AND SIMPLER
GROUND FOR DIVORCE - PLEASE CLICK HERE.***

The treatment of the Plaintiff by the Defendant must rise to the level that the physical or mental well being of the   
Plaintiff is endangered and making it unsafe or improper for the Plaintiff to continue living with the Defendant.

You
cannot obtain a divorce simply because you do not get along with your spouse ("irreconcilable differences")
or because you have arguments or because of an isolated act in an otherwise long and peaceful marriage.

All acts must have happened within five (5) years of the date the summons is filed with the County Clerk.

In describing the specific acts of cruelty, you must be clear and to the point. You must supply the Court with details
like dates and places. If you do not remember the exact date, use the words "on or about".
