- Do you know what no fault divorce is? According to its definition from FindLaw, it states, “No-fault divorce refers to a type of divorce in which the spouse that’s filing for divorce doesn’t have to prove any fault on the part of the other spouse. The most common ground for a no-fault divorce is ‘irreconcilable differences’ or an ‘irreparable breakdown of the marriage.’ A spouse cannot object to another’s petition for no-fault divorce, as that objection itself can be viewed by the court as an irreconcilable difference.” So why are we talking about it?
