Is Washington a No-Fault State?

Washington is a no-fault state, which means that divorce can be granted without either party being at fault. As a result, judges will not consider domestic violence when deciding the distribution of marital property and spousal support. However, there may be indirect implications for the divorce when domestic violence is a factor, and restraining orders are in effect.

The Impacts of Domestic Violence

While domestic violence may not affect how marital property is divided or alimony is awarded, it may influence the court's decision in certain areas, such as child custody, visitation, and monetary considerations in specific circumstances. For example, a history of violence in the home may affect decisions regarding children's best interests.

Domestic violence or abuse may influence the courts when determining:

  • Visitation
  • Child custody
  • Property division: when domestic violence dissipated marital assets
  • Alimony: When the abuse caused post-traumatic stress disorder, resulted in job loss or had other impacts on employment and income
