Wyoming Divorce Law

Divorce Laws in Wyoming

According to Wyoming divorce laws you can request either a fault or no fault divorce. The entry of no fault divorce requires only the statement of irreconcilable differences. Fault based grounds can include confinement for insanity for a period of two years. Additionally, the spouse filing for divorce must have resided in Wyoming for 60 days prior to filing for a divorce in WY.

Alimony & Equitable Distribution in Wyoming

Wyoming is known as an equitable distribution state. Equitable distribution, according to divorce laws in Wyoming, means that the court may distribute any assets of either the husband or wife in a just and reasonable manner. Any factor necessary to do equity and justice between the parties shall be considered.

Alimony can be granted to either the husband or wife under Wyoming divorce laws. Such relevant economic factors as the length of the marriage and the partiesí prior living standard, as well as the spousesí ability to pay are considered in determining the amount that should be paid to the requesting spouse.

Wyoming Child Support, Child Custody and Child Visitation

The main focus in determining child custody, according to Wyoming divorce law, is the best interest of the children. Under WY divorce laws, the court can award joint, sole or shared custody. Visitation rights are typically awarded to the non custodial parent.

Child support (a percentage of the non-custodial parentsí income paid to assist with the support of his children) is determined by the Income Shares model, based on the net income of both parents as set forth by divorce law in Wyoming. Expect to pay child support until the age of 18 or 20, if the child is not yet a high school graduate.
