What does the term "no fault" mean in an Oregon dissolution?
What does the term no fault mean in an Oregon disillusion? The term no fault as it's used within the statute and Oregon law as it relates to disillusion of marriage or divorce basically means that neither party has to have a reason for a divorce. The reasoning behind why a divorce is happening isn't really of much interest to the courts, just the fact that one party wants to get a divorce. That party alleges that there's been irreconcilable differences between the parties and you need no further showing. Under older law, there had to be adultery, vacation of bed and board, something along those lines. Oregon became a no fault state and now either party, if they wish to get a divorce, can get a divorce without any further reasoning.
