What Is the Difference Between No-Fault and Fault Grounds for Divorce?

The difference between fault and no-fault grounds is dependent on the proof the petitioner must present to obtain a divorce decree. For example, imprisonment of a spouse in some states would be considered a fault grounds for a divorce and in other states it would be considered a no-fault grounds for a divorce.

With regard to the question about the advantages in property division, child custody, and child support the answer is basically there is no significant advantage.

Talking with an experienced divorce lawyer will help you understand why the least costly route to divorce is actually no-fault. There is no burden of proof placed on the petitioner of the divorce decree.
