Meaning of Uncaused Divorce
What is Uncaused Divorce:
Uncaused divorce is a reform in the divorce law that allows the dissolution of the marriage without the need to state the cause of the breakdown.
The uncaused divorce, also called unilateral divorce or express divorce, helps that the breakdown of the marriage bond is processed in a shorter period, since:
- It does not require justification or specific cause for the order and,
- It does not require the consent of both spouses.

The processing of an uncaused divorce in Spain and Mexico, for example, begins with a written demand from one of the parties. After the acceptance of the demand by the defendant, the files are processed for the resolution, especially those issues related to the children belonging to the marriage.
