RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS

In order to file for divorce in Vermont, the filing spouse must have been a resident of the state for at least six months. In addition, before the final divorce will be granted Further, one spouse must have been a resident for one year before a final divorce will be granted.

GROUNDS

Vermont’s no-fault grounds for divorce include living separate and apart without cohabitation for six consecutive months without probable resumption of marital relations.

Vermont’s fault-based grounds include, but are not limited to, adultery, willful desertion for seven years, cruel and inhuman treatment and gross neglect.

CHILD CUSTODY

Courts in Vermont recognize that the children’s best interests will be served if both parents are actively involved with their upbringing after the divorce. As long as the agreement appears to be in the child’s best interests, the courts will recognize an agreement that the parents come to regarding the issues of legal and physical responsibility. The Vermont courts will typically not award joint legal or physical responsibilities if the court is required to decide custody in contested situations.

CHILD SUPPORT

Vermont’s child support guidelines apply in virtually every case, unless special circumstances are present. Both parties’ gross income and certain child related expenses are taken into consideration when calculating the child support obligation. The child support obligation will continue until the child reaches eighteen years of age, and may extend through the child’s secondary education. Child support will typically be paid by wage assignment.

VENUE

A divorce action may be initiated in Vermont in the county in which either party resides.

MEDIATION

In a pending divorce, either party may file a motion requesting mediation of disputed issues. The parties may choose to submit any or all of their issues to mediation prior to the initiation of divorce proceedings. This will insure that the case will proceed in court on an uncontested basis.
