Providing Sensible Legal Support When a Marriage Ends
Henderson Taylor Law Firm delivers detailed legal guidance from the moment you choose to end your marriage, including assistance with:
- Filing requirements — A Petition for the Dissolution of Marriage in Washington no longer includes divorce grounds. As a completely “no fault” state, Washington requires only one spouse to allege that the union is irretrievably broken. There is no longer any assessment of blame. Even factors such as adultery are not considered when determining issues like property division.
- Financial declaration — Washington law mandates that each spouse submit a financial declaration prior to the dissolution of their marriage. We can help ensure that your information is correct and that your partner has not omitted something from his or her disclosure.
- Mediation and other litigation alternatives — Alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and arbitration can reduce the time and expense required to end a marriage. It’s important to remember that choosing one of these options does not equate to surrendering on key points. We will advocate just as strongly for your interests, but in an environment where resolution can be attained without going to court.
- Child Custody and Child Support arrangements — When a divorcing couple has children, there are many additional factors to consider. We will help you navigate all matters that impact the well-being of your children, ensuring that they receive the best possible support systems. From establishing custody to arranging child support payments, we will make sue sure your children have the foundation they need in order to enjoy a bright and stable future.
We know how stressful a divorce can be. Our background in Washington divorce law and our commitment to open communication allows our clients to feel secure in the knowledge that they have an effective advocate who is prepared to handle any situation.
