Let’s keep it simple and basic. If one of the couples seeking a dissolution of marriage lives in the Evergreen State, they can file for divorce without the consent of the other partner. Washington is what is called a “no fault divorce state”. Save your energy. Gone are the days when you have to prove fault or demean your former partner just to end the union.
You may question WHERE you file. That would be in the county where you or your spouse resides. How long does the process take? The minimum waiting period in the state is 90 days. It will take at least that long for what is known as the Decree of Dissolution to be entered. However, be prepared that if there are any contested issues it will be a longer process.
For the least stressful method of filing for a dissolution of marriage you need a qualified veteran divorce attorney. In Bellevue, Washington that is 35 year professional Lyle Clark. Attorney Clark is a Seattle area dissolution of marriage attorney in the State of Washington. If you wish to begin the process today, please give Lyle a call at (425) 452-3092.
