What Does a Divorce Involve?

At Pacific Cascade Family Law, our divorce lawyers in Vancouver, WA are experienced in the wide spectrum of issues that arise during a divorce. These issues include, but are not limited to:

Why You Need a Divorce Attorney

To put it simply, the divorce process in Washington State is extremely complex and, without the counsel and representation of a divorce lawyer, it is not likely that you will get the best results. This is true in all types of divorce, but especially in contested cases.

Divorce is not something you should go through alone. You need a divorce lawyer to:

  • Help you to understand your options and make informed decisions on what is best for you
  • Protect your children, property, and assets
  • Advocate for your rights and interests throughout the divorce process
  • Prevent legal mistakes that could damage your and your family's future
  • Take the weight of the legal process off your shoulders so that you can focus on caring for yourself and your family

Types of Divorce Washington State

Washington State is a "no-fault" divorce state, meaning that you don't have to provide any reason or "grounds" for getting a divorce other than "irreconcilable differences." Washington is also an "equitable distribution" state, meaning that all marital property is to be divided equitably rather than 50/50.

Contested Divorce in Vancouver, WA

Your divorce in Vancouver, WA will either be contested or uncontested. Contested divorce cases occur when the spouses are not in agreement either about getting a divorce or about one or more aspects of the divorce, whether how the property should be divided or who should have custody of the children. These cases will have to be litigated in court, which involves higher expenses due to court and attorney fees, as well as a longer time-frame due to busy court schedules, etc.

Uncontested Divorce in Vancouver, WA

Uncontested divorce cases occur when the spouses are in agreement about getting a divorce and are also able to come to an amicable agreement regarding each aspect of their divorce.

Uncontested divorces can be achieved through:

  • Mediation
  • Collaborative law
  • Divorce by agreement
  • Divorce by default

How to File for Divorce

How to Respond to a Divorce

In Washington State, the recipient spouse, called the "Respondent," has to respond to the divorce summons and petition:

  • Within 20 days if served in-person
  • Within 60 days if served outside of Washington State
  • Within 90 days if served by mail

Failure to respond to a divorce summons and petition in time could result in a divorce by default, where the divorce moves forward and is finalized without the Respondent's involvement.
