No Fault Divorce

No fault divorce describes any divorce where the spouse suing for divorce does not have to prove the other spouse did something wrong. All states allow divorces regardless of who is at “fault.” To get a no fault divorce, one spouse must simply state a reason recognized by the state. In California, it is enough to declare that the couple cannot get along. This goes by such names as “irreconcilable differences,” or “irremediable breakdown of the marriage.”
