Vermont Divorce Rights


In the state of Vermont, any complaint by a resident of the state would be accepted by the court only if the petitioner has been residing in the state for a continuous period of one year. However any final decision in a divorce case, according to Vermont divorce rights, can not be delivered unless either of the parties has been a resident of the state for one year.

The petition for divorce could be filed in any of the counties where either the husband or the wife resides. The court where the papers are submitted is known as the family court. Some of the important documents which are required to be submitted at the time of filing the case are the complaint for divorce and a decree of divorce. A court information sheet, property and debt information sheet, financial affidavit, marital settlement agreement and a case cover sheet are some of the other important documents required.

Vermont grounds for divorce

As in the case of other states of the USA, Vermont divorce rights have also divided the grounds for filing a divorce case into two categories. These two categories are Fault and No-Fault categories. No Fault ground of seeking a divorce is the case when a spouse has been living separately for a continuous period of six months. The court in these cases declares that the chances of reconciliation are distant and it is difficult to ease out the differences.

Fault grounds of seeking a divorce on the other hand are grounds where charges of adultery, intolerable severity, willful desertion or incurable insanity are made on the defendant.

Vermont spousal support

Vermont divorce rights recognize Vermont as a state following the principle of equitable distribution of property. In order to settle the issues of property distribution, the court takes into account factors such as the length of the marriage, age and health, employability and the vocational skills, contribution of the spouses in the acquisition of the property and any other factor which the court may find essential.

Maintenance of the non earning spouse after the divorce is the issue discussed in length in any case of divorce. The alimony award is not granted in all the cases of divorce but the cases where the court finds that the living condition of the non earning spouse would be miserable if he/she is not granted any spousal support, alimony award is considered necessary. This alimony award however would be for a specified time period and the amount of the support is also finalized after a precise discussion.

Vermont child custody

The issue of child custody is directly linked with the issues of property distribution and spousal support. A spouse who can not make a living for himself or herself has the least chances of gaining the custody of the child after divorce. Vermont divorce rights make sure that the child custody is given to a party which can property take care of the welfare and educational needs of the child. Wishes of the child and parents however are considered while declaring the custody of the child.
