If you are going through a divorce, you may choose to go through a no-fault divorce. In a no-fault divorce, the idea is that neither of you is to blame for separating. Instead, both of you take on some responsibility for the marriage ending.
A no-fault divorce is beneficial because you don't have to prove that anyone did anything wrong. You may have just grown apart over time. It's possible that you simply don't like your spouse any longer. Regardless, there may be no wrongdoing to blame.
In cases where there is no fault, you will have to file for divorce stating that you have irreparable differences. The court will accept this, but there is typically a longer waiting time to complete your divorce. It is also required that you live separately before you divorce.
Why choose a no-fault divorce?
If you don't want to try to prove that your spouse did something wrong, and you want to guarantee that your spouse cannot reject the divorce petition, then a no-fault divorce is the right choice. It is the easiest kind of divorce since it requires no evidence of wrongdoing.
A no-fault divorce may be easier in some ways, but it isn't necessarily the answer for everyone. It's a good idea to review your case with someone familiar with the laws in your state so that you can make the best decision about how to divorce while protecting your interests. If you are interested in a no-fault divorce, contact your attorney to discuss what you need to begin your divorce case.
