No-fault divorce is the standard method of obtaining a divorce. In Missouri, you can proceed with either a fault or a no-fault divorce. No-fault is often criticized for a range of societal problems from lowering the economic status of women to the fall of Western Civilization. Part of the problem may be that people tend to have short memories and see incidents with no-fault occurring today as somehow being uniquely troubled.
Divorce brings many complexities to your life. No, perhaps more accurately, it brings different complexities to your life. Take, for instance, divorce for a couple who is in their 50s or 60s. Their children are now adults, possibly with children of their own. So during the divorce, there will be no prolonged or contentious discussions of child custody or visitation issues, nor will there be any questions relating to child support payments.
