Divorce mediation may prevent big problems for Spokane couples

Spokane residents have probably heard horror stories about divorces that drag on and on and on. Although these are by no means representative of all divorces, occasionally a particularly long, drawn out divorce will make headlines. One high-profile couple seems to have reached the end of an extended divorce process.

Your ex suddenly announces she's moving away-with the kids

Whether you're in the military or manufacturing, the high-tech or healthcare sector, you know how often, and how quickly, job relocations can happen. They're not always by choice. But if you share custody or have visitation rights with children from a previous marriage, what's to stop your ex from leaving town-or the state-with your son and/or daughter?

Even an uncontested divorce needs legal advice

Couples in Washington whose marriage is no longer viable might not be at one another's throats as most divorces are perceived. It is entirely possible that these individuals will be able to come to an amicable settlement regarding property division, child support, alimony and any other issue that arises as the marriage concludes. Sometimes, they might even decide to move forward with the process and do so without legal help. While that might seem like a good idea at the time with an uncontested divorce, there are reasons why it is not particularly wise.

Understanding community property in Washington

When two people get married, they make a commitment not only to share their lives, but also to share their belongings and earnings as they continue through life together. But of course, not all marriages last until death and dividing property is one of the biggest tasks that gets brought before the court. Many of the decisions made while going through the process comes from distinguishing what should be considered separate property and what should be considered marital property.
