What Is No-Fault Divorce?

When you are deciding to divorce, you may have quite a few questions. In Virginia, you have several options for how to go about the process. One of your options is a no-fault divorce, but you must meet certain requirements to file for a no-fault divorce. The attorneys at Robert L. Isaacs & Associates have the experience and knowledge you need regarding filing for divorce in Virginia. We will help you determine the best course of action for your family.

Understanding No-Fault Divorce

No-fault divorces occur after the couple has been separated for a required period of time, without the possibility of reconciliation. The separation requirements depend on the circumstances, such as:

While most divorces are granted on “no-fault” grounds, the state of Virginia allows divorce actions to be pursued on the basis of “fault,” specifically:

  • Adultery
  • Physical and mental cruelty
  • Desertion
  • Incarceration for more than one year for conviction of a felony

Grounds for divorce other than “no-fault” grounds are extremely fact specific. A number of additional factors apply. We are happy to discuss those issues with you in detail.
