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.
