Is Washington A 50-50 Custody State?
In Washington, the courts prioritize their custody determinations based on the best interests of the child. While it is possible for the custody agreement to resolve in a 50-50 split this way, it is not a guarantee.
How Will The Assets Divide In A Divorce?
State law divides assets depending on whether they are separate or community property. Separate property will go to the sole owner, and community property will divide between both parties in a 50/50 manner.
What Can Minimize The Cost And Stress Of A Divorce?
There are several measures you can pursue to make a divorce easier on you. The first step you should always take is to seek the legal representation of a skilled lawyer. Next, consider resolving your divorce through mediation, which can help you settle things on your terms in a faster and more cost-effective manner. Lastly, remain flexible in all areas of your divorce. If you spend too much time fighting for a particular outcome, it can cost you far more time, money and energy than it is worth.
