Why No-Fault Divorce?
There are many reasons states no longer require fault-based grounds for divorce, for example, no-fault divorce makes it easier for a person to leave an abusive marriage, and domestic violence rates have declined as a result. No-fault divorce also shortens the length of time it takes to obtain a divorce, and divorce settlements are based on need, ability to pay, and contribution to family finances, rather than on fault.
