No-Fault Divorce

The responsible spouse should pay! However, the concept of no-fault means that a divorce court will not look into the reasons why the divorce is occurring, or why the marriage is failing. A divorce court will not change how it allocates property or divides up parenting time and decision-making based on who is at fault.
