You'll Receive All the Help You Need to Understand Washington Divorce and Family Law
The overall success of your divorce case hinges on your ability to fully understand how the law applies to your situation. First and foremost, you need help deciphering the cumbersome legalese that frustrates so many people when dealing with legal issues.
Every attorney at Luce & Associates will help you grasp how divorce and family law applies to your case by translating this legalese into plain English. We also understand the importance of helping you reign in your emotions, so that you can use this information to generate realistic goals that we can then work together to achieve.
Your Tacoma divorce lawyer can help you deal with situations involving:
Property Division - Whether you own a home, a car, or have money invested in a retirement account, how your property is divided will always be a major focus of your Tacoma divorce attorney. A realistic approach to property division means that each party will likely have to make concessions, but with help from your lawyer you will have a better idea of what to expect.
Spousal Support & Alimony - Whether you qualify for spousal support or are required to pay alimony will depend on a variety of factors. Until you speak with a Tacoma divorce lawyer about your specific circumstances, it's impossible to say what the outcome may be.
Child Custody - This can become one of the most emotionally charged aspects of any divorce case. Other issues involving child visitation may also have to be addressed. We always urge our clients to work with their spouse to create a family plan together, easing the burden on their child and each other. However, if this proves impossible, we will work with you to achieve the best outcome possible, even if it means taking your case to family court.
Child Support - Issues involving child support are also part of a family plan. There are schedules created by the State of Washington that outline child support requirements in detail, so your Tacoma divorce lawyer will be able to offer some guidelines of what you may expect to pay or receive. They will also be able to give you an idea of when payments will start, which is especially important if you are facing financial difficulty resulting from the divorce.
Military Divorce - As long as you and your spouse are residents of Washington, and stationed in Washington, you may be able to file for a military divorce. Different laws govern the division of property, spousal maintenance, and child support, in these divorce cases. Our law firm has more than 20 years of experience handling these sensitive cases.
Uncontested Divorces - If you and your spouse agree on the terms of your divorce, your lawyer can help you take the next step.
