Legal Aspects Of Divorce
Marriage and divorce are matters of State law.
The family court division of the state or county
handles petitions for the dissolution of a marriage.
Until recent years, in order to file for divorce
there had to be some proof of irreconcilable
differences or infidelity in the marriage. In
1960 no-fault divorce was introduced. Under
no-fault divorce, either marriage partner could
petition the court to dissolve the marriage without
Most states today recognize some form of no-fault
divorce. Many in the religious community have
been against making divorce easier arguing that it
makes destruction of the family unit and family values
more likely. Nevertheless, some form of no-fault
divorce has become the law in nearly every State.
Although the divorce proceeding may proceed on a
no-fault basis, issues of child custody, child
support, spousal support and asset distribution remain
contentious issues in most divorces. The fact
that one spouse is not portrayed as the "bad guy" in a
divorce, however, makes for a more equitable
distribution of assets and future payments.
