What is a "no fault" divorce?

Modified on 26 Sep 2016 at 2:50 pm

All states offer some form of “no fault divorce.” A no-fault divorce allows the court to sign off on the divorce without having to declare one of other parties as “guilty” or otherwise publicly place blame on one party. Even when one party “blames” the other, it is often easier to pursue and obtain a no fault divorce. The final divorce decree is usually a matter of public record and there is typically no need to fight over causation when the parties can obtain the goal of a marriage dissolution without having to have a public fight or trial over blame.
