What Is No-Fault Divorce?

In the past, couples who wished to end a marriage had to allege some sort of wrongdoing committed by the other spouse, such as abandonment, cruel or inhumane treatment, or adultery. A no-fault divorce allows couples to agree to end the marriage without having to endure the sometimes bruising accusations involved when trying to prove fault. However, just because proving fault is no longer required, a divorce may still be contested. Even if both parties agree to the marriage dissolution, it is important to have our divorce lawyers on your side to protect your interests.
