    What views do you have on Family Law and the way that the Family Courts operate?

    I'm trying to understand the basics and I'm witnessing something that just doesn't jibe with the basic rule of law. Burden of proof, standard of proof, attorney's duty to client, due process, statutory vagueness, everything that applies in the operation of law seems to be totally absent in the no fault divorce case. How can I be sooo of base. Am I the only one who sees this happening? Have you ever looked at it? What are your thoughts?

    Without knowing anything about the specific jurisdiction, this is a difficult question to answer. My answer in the following is not based upon interpretation of any laws or guidelines, only a general understanding of law.

    No fault divorce, to me, means that someone can be granted a divorce without having to prove that the spouse is at fault for having ruined the relationship. Essentially, this would amount to removing old-fashioned barriers to divorce. It would represent progress in the sense that it acknowledges that a marriage is a consensual arrangement that should not be allowed to continue after one of the parties - for whatever reason - has decided that they are no longer willing to stand by their commitment.

    The opposite of "no fault" divorce would be a system where a  spouse could only get the courts to dissolve the marriage by proving that their spouse was predominantly at fault for the relationship having been destroyed.

    My views are conclusive, being based in The Law ... Stipulated by way of Rules, in Koran .. addressing such matters as, Rights and Obligations, Inheritance, Family laws; Marriage, Contracts, and Divorce ...

    Koran gives us Definitive Laws ... not Relative Laws. Thus Islamic Sharia Addresses all Situations, an individual can ever possibly face, in life.

    Family Court sucks.

    Sorry, that's all I really have to say about it. So glad that part of my life is in the distant past.

    Good luck!
