Modifying a spousal support order in Washington

In recent posts, we’ve been looking at the topic of spousal support. We’ve been looking specifically at the issue of entitlement to support, and what factors courts consider when determining entitlement. Here we’ll look briefly at the issue of modification and termination of a spousal support order.

Crossover between property division negotiations and child custody arrangements

In our last post, we commented that divorce settlements do not always need to be measured in strict financial terms to be considered fair. In other words, couples should not necessarily assume in property division negotiations that the only way to negotiate with one another is to fight over assets and debts, even though that may be the obvious thing to do.

How Does 'Imputed Income' Affect Child Support?

In Washington, as in other states, the family law courts order child support payments based (at least in part) on the parents' income levels. This means that whether you are seeking support payments or you are the one who has to pay, your income will play a direct role.

Burning down the house: divorce settlement leads to husband’s fiery outburst

Divorce can obviously be a very contentious process when the relationship has ended in a particularly upsetting manner. When couples enter into the divorce process with animosity toward one another, bad things can happen. Parties are more likely to fight over inconsequential matters, to act out, and to see injustice in the outcome of their case.
