The Divorce Process in Washington State

No one gets married with the expectation of getting divorced.  But nationwide almost 50 percent of marriages end in divorce.  We've all heard this statistic, but it doesn't make it any less painful when you become one of the statistics.

Getting divorce is emotionally draining, as you can imagine.  But not only that--you now have to deal with a number of legal questions you never thought you would have to consider.

And there's the basic question.  How does this whole process even work?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we hear from potential clients.
