These conditions do not explicitly qualify or disqualify a couple from summary divorce eligibility, but they tend to contribute to the complexity of a case and the chances of a contested divorce occurring.
Fault vs. No-Fault Divorce. This can be one of the more complex possible divorces. Prior to no-fault divorce laws, couple’s would be required to indicate that a particular set of circumstances had transpired which provided just cause for divorce. Every US state except for New York has now implemented No-Fault Divorce. No-Fault Divorce requires no proof of significant fault or error on one person’s behalf. Instead, the married couple can choose to indicate irreconcilable differences as the grounds for divorce. Basically, this claim asserts that there are certain base issues which the couple can’t agree upon which cause the marriage to not be possible.
Contested divorce accounts for approximately ninety-percent of all U.S divorce proceedings. In general terms, contested divorce indicates that the divorcing couple can’t agree to division of assets, property, custody, or other issues, and will require a court trial in which these issues will be left to an appropriate court’s decision.
