Getting a Divorce in Washington
Residency requirement. To file for divorce in Washington, either spouse must be a resident of
the state. You are not required to have lived in the state for any specified
length of time, as long as either you or your spouse has established residency.
No fault divorce. Washington is a no-fault divorce state. This means that you do not have
to provide any reasons for the divorce beyond the fact that it is “irretrievably
broken.” Couples do not assign blame or provide reasons why the
marriage did not work. As long as one party wants to file for divorce,
then the state will still grant the divorce, regardless of whether the
other spouse disagrees.
