Grounds for divorce in Washington State

In many states, couples who are getting divorced must allege - and if contested, prove - that a divorce is necessary based on a ground laid out by statute. Examples include such things as adultery, bigamy, abuse, incarceration, etc. Other jurisdictions recognize a "no-fault" divorce. In these types of dissolution proceedings, the couples basically just agree that they want to get divorced and file the necessary petitions.
