Common Issues in Divorce and Legal Separation
Divorce and legal separation involve many complex legal and financial issues, including:
Property Division, child custody and support, and spousal maintenance.
In Washington State, all property acquired during the marriage is generally considered community property and subject to a fair and equitable division upon divorce or legal separation. Our attorneys can help you navigate property division issues and protect your interests. Some of the more complicated issues can include determining if property is community property or separate property or a split, how to fairly divide the assets, and more.
Child Custody and Support
When children are involved in a divorce or legal separation, custody and support become critical issues. Our attorneys have extensive experience representing clients in contentious custody disputes and ensuring that the best interests of the children are protected. We can also help you navigate child support issues and ensure that your rights are protected.
Spousal maintenance, also known as alimony, may be awarded to a spouse in a divorce or legal separation. The amount and duration of spousal maintenance is determined based on a variety of factors, including the length of the marriage, the earning capacity of each spouse, and the standard of living during the marriage. Our attorneys can help you understand your rights and obligations related to spousal maintenance.
