Divorce terminology can sometimes be confusing. One of those terms often misunderstood is no fault divorce. It it sometimes thought that a no fault divorce means that every issue is resolved in the matter. This is actually not the case. A no fault divorce simply means that there need not be any blame or reason stated for one party seeking a divorce. Not all states have no fault divorce statutes in place, thereby making the party seeking the divorce state grounds. No fault divorce simply means any party seeking a divorce in a state that supports this type of divorce, will be granted a divorce, regardless of the other party's desires. This can mean a quick divorce, which is always preferable to both parties.
