A number of important decisions must be made during divorce proceedings. That's especially true if there are child custody issues to resolve. Washington is a community property state, which means the assets (and debts) that you've accumulated with your spouse over the course of your marriage will generally be divided equally.
Many Washington parents are currently adapting to post-divorce lifestyles with their children. In situations where co-parents agreed to certain plans regarding custody, visitation or child support, the court expects both parties to fully adhere to the terms of the order it handed down. In some situations, a parent may have reason to request modification of an existing plan.
