Support for ending your same-sex divorce

Since the United States Supreme Court's 2015 ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, same-sex couples in the United States have been granted the right to have their marriages recognized in every state in the nation. Prior to the Obergefell decision, a same-sex Washington couple may find that their union was not considered valid if they traveled to a state where same-sex marriages were not recognized.

Changes to tax laws will impact how alimony is treated

Paying alimony can be a cumbersome undertaking for someone who is trying to start their life over after ending their marriage. In Washington and other states throughout the country, payers of alimony have been allowed to deduct the money that they pay to their former spouse from their taxable income and therefore lower the amount of money that they must pay in taxes each and every year. However, in 2018 the federal government passed a huge overhaul of the tax system, and part of that overhaul addressed how alimony payments will be dealt with in the future.

How can virtual visitation foster my relationship with my child?

Giving up time with one's child can be the most difficult part of a divorce for a Washington parent. After spending years of their child's life in the same home with them a parent can feel as though a part of their heart is missing when they must live in a place where their child does not reside. When a parent is not granted physical custody rights and does not have the responsibility of meeting their child's day-to-day needs, they may be able to secure visitation rights with them to protect their important relationship.
