No-Fault Divorces Harming Children?

Similar to many other states across the nation, North Carolina has a no-fault divorce statute, meaning that if one spouse wants to separate and get divorced from the other spouse, specific grounds for getting divorced do not have to exist (hence “no-fault”). Additionally, once the prescribed time for being separated without resuming the marital relationship passes – in North Carolina, it’s a period of at least 12 months – there is really nothing the other spouse can do to stop the divorce from going through. No-fault divorce laws have their critics, however. Check out this article about the impact that no-fault divorce laws have on children.
