Approximately 50% of marriages in the United States end in divorce according to statistics provided by the American Psychological Association. The laws governing this process are controlled at the state level as opposed to being regulated federally, and until 2010 not all states allowed no-fault divorce proceedings. This meant that until very recently, it was much more difficult to get a legal divorce in all 50 states. With the introduction of no-fault divorce however, there no longer needs to be proven fault from one of the parties to get divorced, which makes it much easier (legally speaking). Emotionally, however, divorce is still an incredibly difficult process, which can be made even more demanding when the parties do not agree on things like alimony, child support, and the division of property.
