In Washington DC, to be eligible for a divorce, you should meet the following: residency, proof of marriage, and grounds.

For you to have eligibility in getting a divorce, you must have lived in Washington DC for an uninterrupted six months the least. An original copy of your certificate of marriage should also be presented.

Washington DC is a no-fault state when it comes to divorce, it recognizes two grounds only:

  • Mutual and voluntary separation for six months: This means you and your spouse have not been living together for the past six months voluntarily. This must also be a mutual agreement and no cohabitation or sexual relations has been happening between the two of you for the previous six months.
  • Separation for one year: This may be a mutual agreement or not. But if you have not been living in one roof for a year now and no cohabitation or sexual intercourse happened between you and your spouse for a year, you can file for a divorce.

Divorce AttorneyBefore filing a divorce you must know whether it is contested or uncontested. An uncontested divorce means it is a mutual agreement and you have things figured out– the division of assets, child custody and parenting time, child support, and other matters related to a divorce. With this, your divorce process might be fast than usual. But if you have disputes with your spouse and you need the court to intervene to figure out a few things for you, it is a contested divorce. You will discuss and negotiate with your divorce lawyer and your spouse in court for the division of assets, child custody, child support, and parenting time.

Whether uncontested or not, you must work with a DC Metro Divorce Lawyer that is familiar with the law in the state. This is not just good for you but also for your children. Having an accomplished attorney who will protect your best interests can make the divorce processes less hassle and stressful.
