NO FAULT DIVORCE
The law requires that you give the court a reason to grant your divorce. To get the process started, you must state your reason, or grounds, in a divorce complaint or petition. Since 2010, all 50 states recognize "no-fault" divorce grounds, so you simply declare that your marriage is over. Nevada is a pure "no-fault" state. You declare in your complaint that you and your spouse have "irreconcilable differences." You don't have to say why your marriage broke down or what your differences are. The idea behind no-fault divorce is that neither spouse blames the other for the end of the marriage. See NRS 125.010.
