Minnesota is a No-fault Divorce State

That means that in the State of Minnesota any married person is entitled to a divorce, even if the other party doesn’t want it. In fact, the court will not consider the reasons either party may want a divorce, including infidelity or abuse, when deciding whether or not to end the marriage.

Child Custody and Financial Impact

That doesn’t mean that issues which will have an impact on child custody or financial considerations (such as allegations of domestic abuse or financial waste) will not be considered in determining those specific issues, but the overall reasons that one or both parties may want to end the marriage are not considered when terminating the legal marriage relationship.
