Dissolution of Marriage in Washington State
If you can agree on the big issues and iron out the details, your divorce can be relatively quick, inexpensive and painless. However, couples who try to dissolve their marriage without the help of a lawyer often end up in court in not-so-amicable disputes.

With 30-plus years of experience, our attorneys have helped hundreds of couples in Federal Way and the surrounding Seattle/Tacoma area cover all the bases so that they can get divorced and move on. Many of our clients are military personnel at JBLM.
Seattle Attorneys, Assisting in Creating a Fair Divorce Agreement
Although no one is legally required to hire an attorney for dissolution of marriage, the forms are complicated, and hashing out the details can be overwhelming. Uncontested divorce is especially tricky when children are involved. By hiring an attorney who knows the pitfalls from years of divorce litigation, you will end up with a better property settlement and Parenting Plan than a pro se (do-it-yourself) divorce. Our attorneys will help you address specific scenarios that you might not have considered, to arrive at a detailed plan that clarifies loose ends and anticipates disputes.
In an uncontested divorce, you must agree on every aspect of property division, allocation of debts, child custody, child support and (if applicable) spousal maintenance. Typically, we will gather information from you to draw up a fair and practical agreement that can be presented to the other spouse for discussion and revisions to get to a final agreement.
Dissolution of marriage can be finalized 90 days after filing and service, if all parties are in agreement. You will normally appear in court for one simple hearing, and then it's done.
