Objectives of permanent parenting in a child custody agreement

When a couple in Spokane shares a child and is no longer together, it's easy for them to lose sight of what's important. Often, if a relationship between the parents failed as a marriage or the couple was not married and had a child, there is unresolved vitriol that can poison the relationship with children. The state tries to ensure that the best interests of the child are met through fulfilling the objectives of a permanent parenting plan.

High asset divorce yields rejection of nearly $1 billion check

When a couple divorces in Spokane and anywhere in the United States, there are many divorce legal issues that must be handled. A high asset divorce is prone to have many more factors in dispute than a divorce in which there were fewer assets to battle over. When it comes to finances, a couple that has a substantial amount often takes a long time to sift through the assets from the marriage to come to a satisfactory resolution for both. This is true whether there were prenuptial agreements or not.

How do prenuptial agreements affect a Washington divorce?

When a couple in Washington State chooses to get a divorce, there are many issues that will be decided as the process moves forward.

These are also referred to as "premarital agreements." While this post is not meant to be a replacement for legal advice, there are certain facts about these agreements that must be understood both before the marriage and when a divorce is underway.

How does child support enforcement deal with delinquency?

A couple in Spokane that shares a child is responsible for its care. When they either part ways and are no longer a couple or were never a couple in the first place, this doesn't assuage the responsibilities they have. Often, there is a support agreement in which one parent will pay a certain amount of money every month to the custodial parent for the child's upkeep. Unfortunately, there are instances in which the supporting parent, for one reason or another, fails to keep up with the payments and is accused of delinquent payments. When this happens, the state can step in and initiate proceedings to get what is owed.
