I Can Help You With All Of Your Divorce Concerns
There are many elements to a divorce, especially if you have children. I am prepared to represent you in all aspects of your divorce, including:
Who is at fault: Because Washington is a no-fault state, neither party has to prove fault. The petition for divorce simply must allege that the marriage or domestic partnership is, “irretrievably broken.”
Division of assets: Washington is a community property state, which means that all assets and debts acquired during the marriage are considered community property. This can be confusing, but I know the law and how to apply it to your case.
Alimony/spousal maintenance: This can be a contentious matter, so you need a strong divorce attorney on your side. I will protect your rights whether you are paying or receiving alimony.
Child custody: Custody and visitation, referred to as the residential schedule, can be the hardest part of a divorce. Through negotiation or mediation, however, you and the other parent can create a parenting plan that meets your family’s needs. I can guide you through this process, which is less stressful than a trial. Be assured that I do have the litigation experience to take cases to court when that is the right option, though.
