The most common area of Family Law is divorce litigation. Washington is a “no-fault divorce” state, which means that there is no need to assign blame or prove that the other spouse is at fault for failure of marriage. According to the state laws, only one spouse in the marriage must believe and declare that the marriage is irretrievably broken in order for the divorce to be granted.

Usually, state of Washington determines child custody based on the best interests of the child. The first thing that the courts in this state look at when determining the best interests of the child is the strength, nature and stability of the relationship between the child and each parent One or both parents may be granted either legal of physical custody of the child. Legal custody will determine which parent may make daily decisions for a child such as health and education. If you need help in such sensitive subject, please contact our experienced stuff.
