Property Division in Washington

Under Washingtons community property laws, property acquired by the labor of either of the parties during the marriage is divided equally between spouses. The Washington courts have discretion in awarding the property, both community and separate, equitably between the spouse. At the Morrison Law Firm, we have vast experience evaluating and tracing income from property. We are skilled at pursuing a marital property division that fully protects your interests.

Separate property may include inheritance, property acquired prior to the marriage, and other property or assets kept separate during the marriage. As an experienced divorce attorney, Don Morrison can help you evaluate what property may be considered separate property and help you protect that property. Conversely, he also can advocate why certain property should not be considered separate and should be subject to division.

We understand the sensitive concerns of losing hard earned funds or interests in a family business through a divorce. We have extensive knowledge of property division laws and how to overcome the challenges to ensure your rights and interests are protected.
