Nicknamed The Evergreen State, Washington refers to divorce as Dissolution of Marriage.

You can file for divorce in Washington if you are:

  • Married to a Washington state resident
  • A resident of Washington
  • A member of the military stationed in the state
  • Married to or in a domestic partnership with a service member who’s stationed in Washington

The divorce will only be granted 90 days after filing and having your spouse served with legal notice.1

Washington is exclusively a no-fault divorce state, which means the only recognized grounds for divorce are considered no-fault. The judge will grant you a divorce if your marriage is found to be “irretrievably broken.”2

Washington is a community property state, and assets acquired during and before the marriage can be subject to division. Washington divorce laws divide marital property (property and liabilities) equally (50/50) between the spouses.3
