Approximately half of the population will face the challenges that come with dissolving a marriage. Whether you are unwinding finances or deciding on a parenting plan for your children you need a lawyer you can trust and who you feel comfortable with.
Evergreen Law Office prides itself on fostering positive relationships with our clients through a holistic and compassionate approach to our Family Law practice.
Division of Assets & Liabilities:
Washington law will divide your assets and liabilities in a "fair and equitable" - not necessarily equal - manner. During a divorce or separation either you and your spouse or a Judge will decide what that really means.
The truth is: trials are expensive. That is why we give emphasis on structuring property settlements in lieu of costly trials. Unraveling a marriage can be full of a roller coaster's worth of ups and downs, but balancing financial interests, advising on hard decisions in plain english, and pushing forward toward an exciting new chapter in life is what we help our clients do.
Property settlement is not possible for everyone, though. If you are facing a situation where settlement is not an option you also need a passionate advocate on your side. Our focus is your focus, and we pride ourselves on being vigorous advocates for our clients.
Child Custody & Support:
You've been making decisions in the best interests of your children from the day you first held them in your arms. That won't change during a divorce or separation. In fact, Washington law requires courts to make decisions that are in the best interests of your children. Evergreen Law Office is no different. We bring our collaborative approach to practicing law in order to partner with our clients so they understand every important detail of their Parenting Plan.
Most parents want to provide for their children. Child Support obligations are calculated by a statutory formula. If you would like to estimate the child support obligations specific to your circumstances visit the Washington State Child Support Calculator provided by the Washington Department of Social and Health Services (WA DSHS).
Understanding child-support laws, the mechanics of both the payment and receipt of child support can be challenging and are often a point of worry. We will take the time necessary for you to understand the amount of support you will receive or pay to support your children.
If you are in need of child support enforcement or contempt we proudly bring our passionate approach to ensure that your focus can remain on the best interests of your children.
Transparency and easy billing practices are at the core of our business, because constantly watching the clock gets in the way of a trusting and collaborative relationship. We believe that being an effective advocate means keeping lines of communication open, so we answer brief questions and respond to emails and texts without additional charges. We are available when it is convenience for you - not the other way around.
Evergreen Law Office offers flexible pricing and payment plans to suit each of our client's specific needs, including flat fees under certain circumstances. We will always discuss pricing in detail, in advance.
