The other person has committed a crime. Is this grounds for divorce?

The fact that you committed a crime does not in itself constitute grounds for divorce in court.

However, the extent of the crime and the consequences for the family due to the crime
Depending on the impact it has on the marital relationship, it may be grounds for divorce.

The court ruled that the husband committed a crime after marriage and was sentenced to prison, leaving the wife alone.
In the case where he had been earning a living and raising her child, but after her release from prison, he assaulted his wife and separated from her.
“The marriage relationship between the plaintiff and the defendant has broken down to the point where it can no longer be restored.
The fundamental and main responsibility for the breakdown of the marriage was due to being imprisoned for committing a crime.
He failed to fulfill his role as a family member and committed violence against the plaintiff.
It will be said that it is the defendant's fault, and this falls under the grounds for judicial divorce under Article 840, Paragraph 6 of the Civil Act."

Therefore, the wife's divorce request was accepted.

This is a procedure in accordance with Korean law. For foreigners, detailed procedures may vary.
