Divorce Attorney Law


More than 50% of marriages end in divorce today and if you are running a business with your spouse when you decide to split, then along with the many other tough discussions that must be had, you have to make some big decisions about the future of your company. It is stressful for both of you as the person getting divorced and for the attorney who is representing you. There is a saying within legal circles that criminal law deals with bad people at their best and family law deals with good people at their worst.


There are mainly two reasons of divorce attorney law, which are fault and general. In order to file for divorce, the proper grounds must be established. Both spouses are involved in establishing these grounds, and both must substantiate and agree upon these, unless the divorcing spouse is trying to prove otherwise to the court.


A fault divorce may be granted when the required grounds are present and at least one spouse asks that the divorce be granted on the grounds of fault. Only some states allow fault divorces. Many people still seem to think that it is better to get divorced using fault grounds rather than filing for a no-fault divorce; and while many states no longer even have divorces based on fault grounds, there are still some states in which you can get a divorce based on adultery, cruelty, abandonment or desertion, addiction, or incarceration.


Possible grounds for fault divorce include (not all states have all these grounds) :





























A no fault divorce refers to a type of divorce in which the spouse that is filing for divorce does not have to prove any fault on the part of the other spouse. All a spouse needs to do is give any reason that the state honors for the divorce. The most commonly given reason is irreconcilable differences or an irreparable breakdown of the marriage.


When filing for a divorce, if you wish to obtain a no-fault divorce, you simply select the no-fault option as the reason for the marriage. No-fault grounds cannot be contested by your spouse. The simple fact of disagreeing with you about wanting a divorce just shows the marriage is broken. You are not required to provide proof that the marriage cannot be repaired. There is no testimony necessary about what went wrong in the marriage or what one spouse did to the other person.


This includes not only the grounds for divorce, but things such as alimony, child support, property division, and custody. An uncontested divorce can be a fault or no-fault divorce. The uncontested divorce moves forward very quickly since nothing is being disputed. A trial is not necessary. A contested divorce means your spouse does not agree with what you are asking for and the case will proceed toward a trial, unless it eventually settles.
