Need a Divorce Lawyer or Attorney in Vermont?
Thinking of filing for divorce in Vermont? If so, there are a few things you should know before filing the petition. The state has several requirements in place that can drastically affect the outcome of your proceedings if you are not fully aware of what they are. Below are some of Vermont’s divorce laws so you can better prepare yourself for your case.
NVermont Residency Requirements
Divorce complaints in Vermont can only be brought if either spouse has resided within the state for a period of six months or more. However, the actual divorce decree will not be granted for any reason unless either spouse has resided in the state one year prior to the date of the final hearing. Temporary absence from the state over factors such as illness, employment or service in the armed forces will not count against the individual.
