A no fault divorce is when 1 or both want to divorce without proving any wrong doing in the marriage. In those cases of divorcing for no reason, whoever initiates the divorce should give up their rights to their children and the other pays child support.
Initating the divorce due to cheating, abuse, alcoholism, etc is a different case. I'm talking about divorcing just because you want to without a reason. In 1970, California was 1st state to allow no fault divorces.
Give me insight to this. Please only answer if you are somewhat knowledgeable.

You say that a no fault divorce is when both parties want to divorce, so why should the person who initiates it be penalised? How would that be fair?
Putting that aside, where a child is placed comes down to the welfare of the child and to which parent is best placed to support and house the child. Other considerations come into play such as whether one parent will remain in the original home and whether the child is happy there and attending school nearby. The minimum upheaval to the child will be a prime consideration.1
