Divorce Law

Divorce can have a major impact on both spouses, but it doesn’t have to be devastating. Dividing marital property, debts, and finances is an important aspect of the dissolution process, particularly if you are ending a long term marriage.

You need a divorce attorney with experience separating complex assets such as retirement accounts and business interests. We can also help determine whether spousal support is appropriate in your case. We strive to help you understand the possibilities in your particular case so that you can make reasonable and informed decisions about how to proceed.

Child Custody

Parenting plans and custody are often the source of considerable contention for parents, whether they are married and going through a divorce, or they are unmarried and needing a residential schedule. Our child custody lawyers clearly and fully explain the considerations in child custody decisions along with the factors in determining the best interest of the child, as well as the rights and responsibilities of each parent, in creating a plan that meets the needs of all involved.

Child Custody

Understanding Washington’s child support schedule can be intimidating. We help by figuring out the appropriate level of financial assistance based on income calculations and Washington’s statutory factors such as the number and ages of your children, among others.

Child Support Modifications

If there has been a change in circumstances that makes your current parenting plan or child support order impracticable, Priest and Ellis can assist you with a modification. This type of action is complicated and we will see that your matter is handled properly.

Family Law Attorney Consultation

Meeting with an experienced family law attorney regarding your family law issue can help put your mind at ease.  For an affordable flat-rate consultation fee of $100, you can have an attorney look over your paperwork, financials, and circumstances.  We can help answer questions about the law and how it applies to your particular case.  Most importantly, you can get a feeling for our work ethic and philosophy to see if we would be a good fit to help guide your family law case forward.
