Why You Need a Family Law Attorney

Many people go into a family law matter assuming they will not need an attorney. However, even if things start amicably, that doesn’t mean it will remain that way. Family law cases can quickly become contentious, making an already complex issue that much more challenging. That’s where our Washington family law lawyers step in.

Hiring the right lawyer to represent your family’s best interests will be critical in determining how you move on with your life.

An attorney who has extensive experience handling family law situations in Washington can advise you of your options and artfully negotiate on your behalf to protect your financial future. They will also provide you with peace of mind. As your advocate, they will ensure you are treated fairly and, if necessary, will effectively present and argue your case in court.

Washington Family and Divorce Laws

In Washington, family law is outlined in several statutes of the Revised Code of Washington, most notably in RCW Title 26, which covers key topics, including:


Washington does not require “fault” grounds for a divorce. As long as one spouse is a resident of the state and both agree that the marriage is irretrievably broken beyond reconciliation, you may file for divorce.

Parenting Time and Child Custody

Parents must establish a parenting plan when choosing to separate or divorce. Each parent can submit their own, or they may offer one together. A judge will decide whether their custody proposal will become official and enforceable as a court order.

Division of Property

As a community property state, couples must typically split income, debts, property, and assets acquired throughout the marriage 50/50. However, the spouses have the option to come to their own agreement on how they want marital property divided before going to court.
