Washington parents who divorce often encounter challenges regarding child-related issues, such as custody, financial support or other family matters. Those whose goal is to develop an amicable co-parent relationship may want to follow the example of numerous Hollywood celebrities who say the best interests of the child is what is most important. These former couples are willing to do whatever it takes to avoid conflict in their co-parenting plans.
While it is possible to act on your own behalf when ending a marriage in a Washington court, it is usually less stressful and quite helpful to instead rely on experienced legal representation. Especially in a high asset divorce, any number of challenges may arise that are far more difficult to resolve if you are acting alone. In addition, allowing an experienced attorney to represent you may help protect you from being given the short end of the stick in property division proceedings.
