Ending Your Marriage Does Not Have To Be Complex
In a Washington divorce (dissolution of marriage), there is a 90-day waiting period from filing the case until it can move forward. Because this is a no-fault divorce state, you do not have to prove grounds for a divorce. The process is fairly straightforward. We will assist you with asset division and spousal maintenance. If children are involved, we can help you with child custody and support.
Mediation is required for contested divorces in Snohomish and King counties. We can represent you at mediation. The majority of divorces are resolved in this manner, which saves the couple significant time and money on litigation. Mediation also typically reduces the conflict between parties and makes the process less stressful.
Contested divorces can take nearly a year to get to trial. If your divorce cannot be resolved via mediation or negotiation, we can litigate for you at trial. While we always treat all parties with respect, we do litigate aggressively when necessary.
