Benefits of a No-Fault Divorce
Even though the thought of ending your marriage, regardless of your history together, might be slightly distressing, there are some positive aspects of a no-fault divorce. It is important to keep your chin up during this process and remember that there are legal professionals at our firm who are here to help.
Some of the advantageous characteristics of a no-fault divorce include:
- Privacy: You will not have to speak to a judge or jury about personal problems the two of you have gone through; you can always leave it simply as “irreconcilable differences.”
- Emotions: Children in particular are susceptible to experiencing emotional pain during a divorce as one parent or another is cast into a negative light. By keeping things “no-fault,” they may feel confused by what is happening but not necessarily damaged.
- Time to think: You can prepare yourself for a no-fault divorce by first filing for a legal separation. This will give you 18 months to live separately and see if you really would like the marriage to end. If so, you can finish the process readily using no-fault procedures.
