Have questions regarding getting a no fault divorce? We’ve got you covered:
Q: Can I prevent a court from granting a no fault divorce?
A: You actually cannot stop a no fault divorce. Even if you are against your spouse’s request for divorce, that itself is an “irreconcilable difference” that would justify divorce.
Q: How long would a no fault divorce take?
A: We estimate anywhere from two to six months. The length of the divorce process, however, depends on several conditions. It depends on whether each spouse is in agreement over getting divorce (and each sign divorce papers). It also depends on how many divorce cases are going through the court at the time you file.
Q: What is the benefit of a no fault divorce?
A: No fault divorces can be more realistic and reasonable than fault divorces. The laws of no fault divorce are designed with the complex relationships between individuals in mind. A no fault divorce recognizes that there may not be one singular cause for the divorce or that one spouse is entirely to blame.
Q: How is alimony awarded in a no fault divorce?
A: the court considers the current earnings and earnings of each spouse. The work history and employment of each spouse is also considered. While the parties can work together to suggest an alimony amount, ultimately the judge must agree to and determine the amount to be paid.
Q: Can I still file a no fault divorce if my spouse had an affair?
A: Yes. The no fault divorce law remains even in the case of an affair. The fact that there was infidelity does not impact the case.
