Divorce is one of the toughest challenges a family can face, but it is possible to transition from marriage to divorce peacefully, with respect, and without causing your children unnecessary trauma.

In addition to the emotional issues in a divorce, there are a number of practical decisions that must be made. Ending a marriage requires former spouses come to terms concerning:

  • Division of property
  • Division of assets
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Spousal and child financial support

Washington is a no-fault divorce state, so nobody is required to prove wrongdoing to obtain a divorce. Despite nobody being at fault, you can easily feel as if you are being punished or treated unfairly, especially if your former spouse is being unreasonable.

Washington divorce laws are complicated. Judges are given a great deal of latitude to make rulings. There is no mathematical formula for determining spousal support or how assets are divided. The court attempt to make decisions that are fair and equitable, but these definitions vary from marriage to marriage and judge to judge. You need someone working on your behalf that understands the state’s complicated divorce laws and ensures your rights are protected.

Your Children are Your Number One Priority

It is important to protect your children during divorce. Every family is unique and there is no single approach that is going to work for every case. Working with attorneys who understand that children are your main priority can mean the difference between a happy, well-adjusted child and one that struggles to accept his or her parents’ divorce.
