A no-fault divorce is the type of divorce in which a spouse files a divorce based on irreconcilable differences. The spouse who is asking for a divorce, A.K.A. the plaintiff, is not required to provide a reason for wanting the divorce to the family court. They don’t have to provide any information about what their partner did or did not do. It is no longer necessary to claim what the other party has done that caused the desire to end the marriage.

In almost all “no-fault” divorces, plaintiffs can file for a divorce based on irreconcilable differences, or the relationship is beyond the point of reconciling, or incompatibility. All of these three equate to the same thing, which is that the two parties cannot coincide anymore and that the relationship cannot be repaired anymore.

This type of divorce is non-objectionable by the defendant nor by the spouse receiving the divorce.
