Because of the nature of these facts, it was inevitable that one party being accused by the other would cause tension and arguments. In some cases, if one party filed for divorce, then the other party could dispute this. Therefore, both parties would have to wait at least two years before the divorce could proceed, if they didn’t want to blame their spouse.
What Does the Introduction of No-Fault Divorce Mean?
No-Fault Divorce provides separating couples with the chance to file for divorce on the grounds that the marriage has irreversibly broken down, with no fault needed. This will prevent a lot of disputing and conflict within the divorce process, as there are no accusations needed to show that a divorce is necessary. Prolonging divorce can be really draining on a person’s mental health. With the introduction of no-fault divorce, these faults are no longer needed, and contesting a divorce does not prolong or halt the process.
It encourages couples to agreeably split when they feel that the marriage has broken down, without the need to pick fault or accuse one another of any wrongdoing.
