You or your spouse must meet the Vermont residency requirements for the Family Court to have jurisdiction of your case. The requirements before filing your Original Complaint for Divorce (the document that initiates your divorce) are as follows:
Either party to the marriage has resided within the state for a period of six months or more, but a divorce shall not be decreed for any cause, unless the plaintiff or the defendant has resided in the state one year next preceding the date of final hearing. Temporary absence from the state because of illness, employment without the state, service as a member of the armed forces of the United States, or other legitimate and bona fide cause, shall not affect the six months' period or the one year period specified in the preceding sentence, provided the person has otherwise retained residence in this state.
In order to use this service, you and your spouse must agree (or eventually agree) on getting the divorce. Your spouse's participation is minimal, being he or she will only have to sign a few documents and return them to you for filing with the court.
The most common "uncontested" ground for divorce in Vermont is:
When a married person has lived apart from his or her spouse for six consecutive months and the court finds that the resumption of marital relations is not reasonably probable.
All of your documents will be current according to Vermont statutes and will address over 100 issues. A few of these issues are; assets, property, current debts, future debts, insurances, retirement and pension accounts, spousal support/alimony, real estate, small businesses, tax filings, name changes, and professional fees. If you have children, our service will also address physical and legal custody arrangements, visitation schedules, child support, and health and medical coverage.
