Justipedia explains No-Fault Divorce

A no-fault divorce is the fastest and cheapest way to effect a divorce. It's made easier by the fact that it can be done by the individual and is not so technical in nature as to require legal assistance. It can only be used at times when both parties agree in advance to all of the points within their separation, including the division of assets, child custody and maintenance.
