Q
Does adultery matter in a Washington State divorce?

A

Washington State is a "no fault" state, which means that either party can file for divorce without providing proof of a specific cause, such as adultery. Instead, the filing party only has to state that the marriage is "irretrievably broken." Because adultery is not taken into consideration in a Washington State divorce, it does not impact the parenting plan or divorce settlement.
