Connecticut No Fault Divorce


According to Connecticut no fault divorce laws, you may get a divorce on the grounds of “no fault” in the state of Connecticut where you need not prove that your spouse has done any “wrongdoing” and thus, indulge in “blame-game”. Divorce is granted if you state in the courts that there are “incompatible temperaments” or “irreconcilable differences” between you and your spouse and that the marriage is “irretrievably broken”. Courts do not wish to have evidence of proof regarding this matter unlike, “fault grounds” where the spouses have to prove “wrongdoing” of the other.

Choosing no fault or fault grounds

It has been observed that a spouse may wish to choose “no fault” grounds for divorce even if there are substantial ‘wrongdoing” on part of the other spouse, simply because he/she does not wish to drag oneself or the children in messy blame-games of the court to prove the “fault”. Often some may choose to file the divorce on “fault grounds” because CO fault grounds of divorce specify that property division, child custody and spousal support issues would be differently dealt with in “fault cases”. It is the discretion of the spouse to choose the ground for divorce. In many cases, the spouse may ask the judge to consider the “fault” of the other spouse while ruling upon child custody or property division.

It is generally observed that when a spouse files for no fault divorce then there is an attempt to divide the property and settle related matters out of the court.

This property needs to be “equitably” divided among the spouses. This often, but not always excludes the property that was acquired by the spouse before the marriage. Then there is the issue of deciding who gets the “marital residence” after the divorce. It is the house in which the two partners had stayed during the course of marriage. Often spouses do not leave the home thinking that they would be disadvantaged if they leave the premises. But this has detrimental effect on the children who witness the acrimonious relationship between the parents. Courts ensure that there is a just and equitable distribution of property in such no fault divorce cases.
