A Divorce can be either a no-fault divorce, which is becoming the most common, or a fault-based divorce.
In a fault-based divorce you must prove that your spouse is to blame for the failed marriage.
Adultery, abuse or addiction, are the most common complaints fro a at fault divorce. .
No-fault divorce means that no one is to blame. A common reason in this category is irreconcilable differences.
In a traditional adversarial divorce or in a co-operative mediation divorce,
the judge does not have to accept the settlement agreement in contemplation of a
divorce, but they normal do unless there is something wrong with it. Some things
which might cause a judge to not allow the agreement are, child support too far
outside the guidelines, or an unlawful provision in the agreement.
