Do I Need to Prove Fault to File for Divorce?
"Fault" in the context of divorce simply means that a spouse did something that caused the marriage to fail. Examples of fault include abuse or cruelty, adultery, abandonment, and imprisonment.
Washington: No-Fault State
Washington is a no-fault state, meaning parties do not need to claim any wrongdoing on the part of their spouse in order to file for divorce, and any actions like adultery will have no bearing on the outcome.
Idaho: Fault/No-Fault State
Idaho is a fault and no-fault state. That means that spouses don't need any reason beyond irreconcilable differences in order to divorce.
However, during a divorce, a spouse can claim that the other party committed adultery, neglect, abandonment, or acts of extreme cruelty, which can have a bearing on alimony and child custody.
Keep in mind that allegations of fault by the other spouse must be proven in order for them to influence any aspect of the divorce.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a divorce lawyer cost?
Having a divorce attorney like David Partovi on your side can be an incredible asset that can actually save you money over time by making sure arrangements like spousal support are fair. Attorney fees range from $5,000 to $20,000, depending on the complexity of your case. Our consultations are free, and once you sit down and discuss your case, we will be able to give you a more accurate estimate of your costs.
How long does a divorce take?
This varies with each case, but many divorces can take as long as a year. Straightforward, uncontested cases will move much faster than complex or contested cases. It is also important to remember that court schedules are based on availability. While you may have an uncontested divorce, your court date may be weeks in the future, depending on the judge's caseload.
What does "uncontested" mean?
"Uncontested" simply means both parties agree to the terms of the divorce and there are no disagreements with the terms. If one or both parties cannot agree, then it becomes a contested divorce that is likely to take longer. Family law attorney David Partovi can handle both uncontested and contested divorces to ensure your best interests are met.
My spouse committed adultery. Will this have any bearing on my divorce?
This depends on where you file. In Washington, it will have no influence on the outcome except in very rare cases (such as a spouse spending large amounts of money on a partner out of wedlock). In Idaho, you can claim the other party committed adultery, treated you with extreme cruelty, or abandoned you, which can make a difference regarding child custody and alimony payments. If you choose to make these claims in court, they must be proven. David Partovi can help you gather pertinent evidence.
We offer free consultations to men and women interested in speaking with a divorce lawyer. If you live in Washington or Idaho and you are considering a divorce, contact our Spokane office today to schedule your free case review with Mr. Partovi.
