WVC 48 - 5 - 201
PART 2. GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE.
§48-5-201. Grounds for divorce; irreconcilable differences.
The court may order a divorce if the complaint alleges that
irreconcilable differences exist between the parties and an answer
is filed admitting that allegation. A complaint alleging
irreconcilable differences shall set forth the names of any
dependent children of either or both of the parties. A divorce on
this ground does not require corroboration of the irreconcilable
differences or of the issues of jurisdiction or venue. The court
may approve, modify or reject any agreement of the parties and make
orders concerning spousal support, custodial responsibility, child
support, visitation rights or property interests.
