No-fault divorce is a relatively new development in New York family law. For a long time, a divorce necessitated that one spouse be designated at fault for the failing of a marriage. With no-fault divorce, there’s no need for blame to be officially assigned, making the process of getting a divorce more efficient and less contentious.
Who is suited for no-fault divorce?
There are still issues to work out in a no-fault divorce, of course. Generally, the divorce will be relatively amicable and both parties will agree on how best to deal with child custody, the separation of assets and more. Eligibility for no-fault divorce begins once the marriage has been broken down for at least six months. For these reasons, it may be best suited for couples who have no children or significant assets that may cause issues during the divorce process.
