Ending a marriage is never an easy reality to face, no matter the length of the union. A marriage often means that Washington spouses have built a life together. The divorce process now means that the couple must plan and prepare to deconstruct that life to build separate lives.
For some divorcing couples, this means sorting through numerous assets, property and liabilities. Additionally, if children are involved, parents will also have to face decisions regarding a parenting plan. And, before a divorce decree can be reached, the divorcing couple may need to address financial decisions, such as spousal support and child support.
A lot of decisions could be on the plate of divorcing spouses, making it an ideal time to attempt to work as a team.
