Types of Family Law Cases We Handle

When most people think of family law, divorce and separation immediately come to mind. However, family law is a general category encompassing many facets of law, including but not limited to the following:

  • Dissolution of marriage. Washington is a no-fault divorce state. This means a marriage only needs to be “irretrievably broken” for a divorce to take place;
  • Legal separation. These are instances where married parties are separated but remain married;
  • Collaborative law/mediation/arbitration. All of these are alternatives to a traditional divorce trial;
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. These are agreements that spell out division of property and debts in the event of a divorce;
  • Paternity. Unmarried parents establish fathers’ rights and responsibilities in paternity cases;
  • Guardianships. Guardianships are a means to protect those who are legally incapacitated and unable to care for themselves fully;
  • Adoption. Adoption can be a lengthy process and require a thorough examination of the adopting family;
  • Child support. Child support can be an initial case or modification and arise from a divorce, paternity, or DSHS case;
  • Child custody. Washington requires a parenting plan for divorcing parents specifying custody and visitation schedules;
  • Military divorce. Military divorce has special provisions that apply only to service members;
  • Orders of protection. Although criminal in nature, orders of protection fall under the realm of family law.

Handling family law issues on your own between the family members can become complicated and emotionally charged. This is often not the best environment in which to make life-altering decisions. One of the main advantages of working with a family law attorney, whatever your case may be, is to have the assistance of an impartial third party. In addition to having an impartial third party, you’ll have an individual highly experienced in similar cases which will help you achieve your goals and objectives.

Your Family Law Attorney Has Your Best Interests in Mind

When it comes to family law issues like divorce or child custody disagreements, oftentimes both sides of the dispute believe that they are entirely correct. Making decisions about very sensitive issues that have emotions involved like children and marriage can be difficult. Decisions that are emotionally charged are sometimes not the best and can lead to unintended consequences.

With an experienced Bellevue family law attorney by your side from Twyford Law Firm, you can rest assured that your desires and best interests are being looked out for, objectively. Your attorney is contracted to do whatever is possible, within legal and ethical guidelines, to achieve the goals that you communicate. Your attorney is on your side, and when it comes to family disputes having someone in your corner can make all the difference.

Your Attorney Works To Secure the Best Possible Outcome

When it comes to family law disputes, for example, a divorce, evidence will determine a significant portion of the outcome. In the example of a divorce, evidence is collected to determine the financial situation of both spouses to determine any related spousal support orders.

Evidence will determine whether you are entitled to spousal support, or if you have to pay spousal support and in what amount. A lack of evidence can be detrimental to your case, and your attorney knows how to apply a variety of legal instruments to collect it on your behalf. These include requests for production, interrogatories, depositions, and other ways that the court allows for parties to collect information that will inform the decision of the court.

In terms of child custody, evidence is once again absolutely essential to guide the decision of the court and the outcome of your child custody decision. Evidence concerning the suitability of a parent to provide support for the child is essential to this end. This support includes not only emotional and mental support but also structural and financial support. When the court makes a decision about child custody, it is concerned with the best interests of the child, and the evidence you provide to outline this will determine the outcome of the court.

Your Bellevue family law attorney will ensure that we know the relevant facts about the other party, and the court knows the relevant facts about us, to make an informed and just decision
