What is a no fault divorce?
In a no-fault divorce, the parties state in their filings that the marriage has broken down irretrievably or that the couple has irreconcilable differences. In other words, if one person wants a divorce, the couple will be divorced. In a fault divorce, the Plaintiff must prove that the Defendant has committed a wrong (cruel and abusive treatment is an at fault grounds for divorce in MA) that allows the Plaintiff to get a divorce.
