Divorce in Washington state

Divorce in Washington is legally called “dissolution of marriage.” This process ends the marriage. Through the process, the final orders address distribution of property and liability and maintenance if appropriate. Additionally, if you have children, the process also addresses the parenting of minor children and child support.

Washington is a no-fault state, meaning that a spouse does not have to prove wrongdoing to obtain a divorce. The general rule is that a spouse can obtain a divorce if the marriage is “irretrievably broken”. The other spouse does not have to agree in order for the other partner to file for a divorce.
