Considering filing for divorce in Washington State?
We're here to help you understand your legal rights and options.
No one gets married with the intention of one day having to deal with a Washington State divorce. But it happens. We are here to help you understand your legal rights and options, and to fight for you and your family.
Washington's divorce laws are complicated. In many respects, they are more uncertain than certain, and commissioners and judges have extremely wide latitude to make rulings that are based not on specific formulas but on broad and overarching ideas such as "fair and equitable" and "in the best interests of the child".
Any experienced Washington State divorce attorney will tell you that two judges can look at the exact same set of facts and reach two entirely different results. This is where experience and a thorough understanding of our state's family laws, as well as our local courts, can have a significant impact on how your case is ultimately resolved.
Every Washington State family law case is unique.
The simple truth is that every divorce or family law case is unique. Over the years, we have learned that there is no perfect approach to every case. You know your situation and your family better than anyone. That's why we begin every divorce or family law case by listening carefully to our client and developing a set of achievable goals from the onset.
This is imperative because actions taken early on in a divorce case can have dramatic repercussions down the road. This is why we chart a strategic path on multiple fronts from the beginning of your case. This is critical because what happens early in your case often has a dramatic impact on how it ends.
If you have questions about your Washington divorce or family law matter, we encourage you to call our offices to learn more about your rights and legal options. During our initial consultation, one of our experienced Washington divorce lawyers can review your case in detail and discuss your legal options, as well as how we can assist you in achieving your goals.
Choosing the right Washington State family attorney is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.
There is no magic formula for finding the right Washington divorce attorney. A lot, frankly, has to do with finding someone with whom you have a genuine rapport and who you know will tell you the truth, even when you may not want to hear.
That may seem like a strange consideration when seeking a Washington divorce lawyer. In our opinion, however, it is critical. The bottom line is that you must trust the lawyer in whom you place your confidence. Few Washington divorce cases go absolutely smoothly from start to finish. There are almost always a few hiccups along the way.
Additionally, there are many different philosophies and approaches to successfully resolving divorce and family law cases. A lot also depends on your own personality and the current status of your relationship with your spouse.
Are you two able to effectively communicate? Is there a lot of anger and hostility? What is the size of your marital estate? Can your case or parts of it be negotiated? Is personal safety an issue? All of these are important considerations when trying to find an attorney best suited to handle you particular case.
The right approach to your Washington divorce.
