The venue for filing this sort of divorce is the county in which one or both the divorcing partners live in this state. The action for divorce is made in the Family Court. The person who initiates the action is called as the Plaintiff. The other partner is known as the Defendant. The Plaintiff files the Complaint for Divorce. The document that states that the dissolution has been granted is referred to as the Final Divorce Order.

Grounds of Vermont No Fault Divorce

The divorcing couple must have resided apart and separate in the absence of cohabitation for 6 continuous months. Moreover, there must not be any reasonable possibility of resumption of marital life. The court forms an opinion that the resumption of marital life is not possible, unless one of the divorcing partner objects to this opinion.

Residency requirements of Vermont No Fault Divorce

One of the divorcing partners must have stayed in this state for minimum six months prior to the filing date. Additionally, one of the divorcing partners must have lived in this state for minimum one year prior to the date of final hearing. When this one year condition is fulfilled, only then the divorce can be finalized.

If a divorcing partner fulfills all the above conditions, but is temporarily out of this state due to military service or employment or illness or any other bona fide and legitimate reason, then, the residency requirements are considered as fulfilled, if the partner has lived in this state for the remaining period.
