Some Common Family Law Issues in Washington

Washington State has laws that define how judges render decisions in family law and divorce cases. Some of the more common issues are listed below.

Child custody seeks to determine a child's living arrangements after a divorce is finalized. Sometimes modifications must be made to custody arrangements, and this can happen years after a divorce is finalized. A parenting plan is crafted during a divorce which outlines the responsibilities of each parent.

Child support is the arrangement whereby a child's monetary needs are cared for. Even noncustodial parents must maintain their financial obligations in regards to their children, and theirs is often the greater financial responsibility. Income may also factor into the equation, so speak with one of our Bellevue family law lawyers to get the facts.

Alimony is also called spousal support, and it refers to money paid to an ex-partner after a divorce. Usually the spouse that earned more money during the marriage is the one who is responsible for alimony payments.

Property division refers to the fair distribution of assets to each partner. Bank accounts, property, real estate, and even pets must be equally distributed, according to the law. While there are basic legal guidelines for the division of property, the process is often fluid and complex, so be sure to get help from an attorney who will protect your interests.
