What does “no fault” mean?

California is considered a “no fault” divorce state, which simply means that the spouse/r domestic partner that is asking for the divorce does not have to prove that the other spouse or domestic partner did something wrong. To obtain a no fault divorce, one spouse/domestic partner has to state that the couple cannot get along. The legal term for this is “irreconcilable differences.”
