DIVORCE

 

Not everything in life works out, and that's okay. Divorce is very common, but you want to make sure you do it right to avoid problems in the future. We represent individuals in divorce cases and issues that may arise, such as child custody, child support, property division, maintenance, mediation, negotiation, and litigation. 

LEGAL SEPARATION

 

Legal separation may be a beneficial alternative to filing for divorce. As part of the legal separation, a court enters orders regarding property, child support, parenting plans, and finances. 

PROPERTY DIVISION

 

Washington is a community property state, which means that community property is to be divided equally when couples divorce. Many factors are at play in determining how a court chooses to divide property, both community and separate, as well as debt. 

CHILD CUSTODY

 

When there is a contested divorce with children involved, it can get messy. Courts can enter Parenting Plan orders that determines who has custody of the children and other specific details. 

CHILD SUPPORT

 

There is a formula outlined by statutory laws for calculating child support payments. We can help with establishing child support, modifying child support, and enforcing child support obligations. 

PRE-NUPS

 

Although prenuptial agreements are sensitive to talk about for soon-to-be married couples, it is important to have one in place. It helps protect assets and avoid the possibility of expensive divorce litigation down the road. It allows people to keep individual debts separate, protect family businesses, and protect assets for children one may bring into the marriage.
