Clark County Washington Divorce Attorneys

Divorce is one of the hardest decisions you will ever make, and one that brings with it a range of complex legal issues. From child custody issues to dividing property, the complexities of any divorce go far beyond just the dissolution of the marriage. The effects are long-lasting, and without proper guidance through the challenging legal issues present in any divorce, the process can be traumatic.

Washington is a "no fault" divorce state, meaning that neither spouse has to prove the other one is guilty of any wrongdoing, only that the relationship is broken. The spouses do not even have to be in agreement that divorce is the best choice, state law allows for just one side (the "petitioner") to ask for a divorce. Divorces can, and often are, contested in Washington though. Even when both parties agree to separate, there are still complicated questions of child custody arrangements and residential status. Even in marriages where there are no children, (or children are grown), questions remain on how to split up property, retirement benefits, business interests, and other financial matters that can have far-reaching consequences if not dealt with correctly. You owe it to yourself and your future to consult with the right attorney when marital problems arise.
