When people get married, it is usually for life. It is for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, and in sickness and in health. But, when worse has gotten to worst, poorer has bottomed out, and your sickness has become “sick of it all,” the next step considered is either a separation or a divorce. When you have given the marriage all you can or are willing to give it, there is a Divorce Lawyer in Port Poulsbo WA who would like to talk to you. Getting a divorce can be complex and the law firm wants you to know all you need to know about divorce law in Washington.
The State of Washington refers to divorce as a “dissolution of marriage.” Such an end to the marriage will be granted in Washington if you are able to meet all of the following conditions: you were married legally, or by common law in another state or country (as Washington makes no provision for common law marriages), you or your spouse is a Washington State resident, one of you believes the marriage is irretrievably broken, you properly file the dissolution and serve the summons and petition, and a minimum of ninety days has passed since the petition was filed. This is to say nothing of the complications that will ensue should your spouse decide to fight or disagrees with the terms of the dissolution. Issues about property, alimony and child custody will make it further complex.
As you can see, the requirements are quite stringent for a dissolution of your marriage. You will need an attorney who will fight for you to get what is fair.
