No Fault Divorce

No Fault Divorce

Posted By Meyers Law Group || 3-Dec-2011

Are you considering a divorce from your spouse but do not want to spend months battling over the details? If so, you may be eligible for a "no fault" divorce.

What Is No Fault Divorce?

This type of divorce is available to residents of most states. As its name implies, there is no fault assigned to either party in the divorce. Instead, the person who files for divorce provides a reason such as "irreconcilable differences" or "incompatibility" for wanting to end the marriage. If the other person agrees to the no-fault divorce, the process of separation is hastened.

In no fault divorce, parties must still decide on major issues of the divorce, including:

  • Division of assets and properties
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Spousal support

Depending on what state you reside in, however, you may not be able to obtain a divorce immediately. Some states require that you live separately for several months or even years before they can finalize their no-fault divorce.
