 Washington State is a community property state. This means that property acquired during the marriage belongs equally to both spouses. However, this does not mean that property is always divided 50/50. There are many factors for the court to consider: the length of marriage, each spouse’s financial situation at the time of division, spouse’s ability to work or whether one spouse had not had the chance to work outside the house, health condition, and many more.
Debts acquired during the marriage are also considered and divided between the spouses. Obviously, this could be a daunting situation. Remember, McCormick Law offices will stand by your side and guide you through every step of the process. We will make sure you are well taken care of.
