Difference Between Fault and No Fault States

There are many differences between fault and no fault states when it comes to divorce. One of the major differences is that the reasons behind a parties' divorce in a no fault state are virtually irrelevant. When it comes to emotionally cruelty and the like, those issues are rarely ever a factor in equitable distribution, alimony and child custody issues in no fault states. However, in fault states, these factors come into play. See the following story regarding New Jersey's ex-governor to see how fault can come into play.
