What Is a No-Fault Divorce?
In past years, any married couple who wanted to get a divorce, had to have a legitimate reason for it. Reasons could include adultery, mental incapacity, impotency, duress, or fraud in obtaining the marriage, pregnancy of the wife by a man other than the husband, at the time of the marriage, unknown to the husband, adultery, etc. However, nowadays, there doesn’t always have to be a reason to get a divorce. Nowadays, anyone can get a divorce, just because they feel like it. This is called a no-fault divorce.
How Does a No-Fault Divorce Work?
A no-fault divorce is pretty simple actually. On paper it will most likely show up as “irreconcilable differences.” This just means that a couple can’t come to an agreement on one or many things, and as a result, can’t stay together. This is actually quite common, and very simplistic. Usually when irreconcilable differences occur, dividing assets between the spouses can be very easy. But that’s not always the case. Sometimes, the irreconcilable differences are quite serious differences, and the spouses hold a grudge against one another as a result, making the division of property very long and drawn out. Keep in mind, a no-fault divorce doesn’t always entail that nobody was at fault in the relationship, however, that is what each spouse is stating.
