Vermont is a no fault state which means that the court can grant a divorce without a party having to allege that their spouse has been at fault, such as having an affair etc. However, the court can consider fault for purposes of property distribution.

A divorce proceeding may or may not include minor children. If minor children are involved, two primary orders have to be in place; an order regarding parental rights (custody) and an order regarding child support.
