Vermont divorce courts always intend to have both parents involved in the child’s life after the divorce. However they will allow an agreement by the parents to be in place as long as the agreement is in the best interest of the child. In situations where the court has to make a ruling on custody issues, they will generally not award joint legal or physical responsibilities.
Vermont has adopted child support guidelines which apply in virtually every case, unless special circumstances are present. The child support calculation takes into consideration the gross income of both parties, and certain child related expenses. Child support will continue until the child reaches the age of majority, and may be extended through his or her secondary education. It is assumed that child support will be paid by wage assignment.
A divorce in Vermont will be heard in the county where either party resides.
After the filing of Vermont divorce papers either party may submit their issues to a period of mediation. At any time before the divorce proceedings the couple can also take their issues to mediation, if they can agree on these issues they will be able to proceed with the divorce under an uncontested basis.
