Before filing a divorce case against your partner, one must be aware of information related to divorce. There are two types of divorce: Fault and No Fault divorce.


What are different types of Divorce?

Fault Divorce

A fault divorce is one in which one partner blames the other for the failure marriage. This is most common when abuse is an issue.Grounds for fault divorce includes adultery, physical or mental torture, desertion, alcohol or drug abuse, impotence etc.In some cases, the divorcing spouse may want to file a fault divorce, because he or she may be awarded a greater share of the couple’s assets. Fault divorces also tend to be processed more quickly as there is no separation period like the one required for a no fault divorce.

No-Fault Divorce

A No Fault divorce is less complicated than a fault divorce. The court demands no evidence and grants divorce on any legal recognized reasons. General issues like “incompatibility or differences can be considered as a valid reason for a no fault divorce.This means that the other spouse cannot prevent his or her partner from filing for divorce. By challenging the decision, he or she only lends merit to the fact that the couple does not see eye to eye.

Is there any Alternative to divorce?

Annulment and separation are two common alternatives to divorce.
