With years of experience, our team of legal experts will support you to go through this process with as little stress as possible. Able to help in all types of divorce, a no-fault divorce is the most simple and low-cost form of divorce. Taking a no-blame approach we will help this to be as conflict-free as we can.
What is a no-fault divorce?
A no-fault divorce means that there is no need for one spouse to take ‘the blame’. Both parties agree to make a joint application for divorce which allows you to avoid the traditional route of one partner needing to accuse the other of an untoward action. Instead citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ is the basis. In this form of divorce, there is no worry about the other party contesting the application, saving you time, costs, and the stress of going to court. The time frame for this form of divorce is usually around 6 months. During this time we will support you and the other part to form settlement arrangements. This includes dividing any necessary finances, and where required arranging parenting plans, and agreeing to maintenance payments.
Why will this benefit me?
No-fault divorces are quicker, simpler, and cheaper than at-fault ones. There is less conflict so the process decreases strain and upset, as we work as amicably as possible to find a resolution in the division of your assets. These assets include monetary settlements that are based purely on a spouse’s ability to pay, their need, and the contribution to the finances in the first place. It does not take into account their role in the relationship.
Downsides to a no-fault divorce
If there are dependents involved in the divorce you will need to get legal advice to see if this form of divorce may be detrimental to you. This is because spousal support is not granted. This means that whichever spouse is granted custody of the children will not be receiving court-ordered financial support from the other party. Other elements include the unilateral nature of most no-fault divorces. This means that the divorce can still go through even if only one spouse believes the marriage unsalvageable.
