Vancouver Divorce Frequently Asked Questions
I live in Washington but my spouse lives in Oregon. Where should I file for divorce?
When a family law case involves multiple jurisdictions, there are many things to consider. Our Vancouver divorce lawyers often assist clients in cases that do not respect borders. A qualified divorce attorney can help you determine the logical course of action for your circumstances. Speak with our client services representatives about scheduling a meeting with the right attorney for you.
How is spousal support determined in Vancouver?
The court has significant discretion in determining spousal support, also known as “spousal maintenance” or “alimony.” Many other factors are considered, such as your financial resources, your standard of living, the length of your marriage, and your age and health. Continue reading about spousal support in our Guide to Getting a Divorce in Washington State.
How long does a divorce take in Vancouver?
The length of time before a divorce is finalized varies greatly. At the very minimum, there is a 90 day waiting period in Washington after you have filed your petition before divorce can be finalized. After that, it depends. Usually, Washington divorce cases take between four to eighteen months. Your attorney can give you an idea of how long your divorce case will take in Vancouver. Read our Guide to Getting a Divorce in Washington State for further information.
Will our assets be split equally?
Washington is a community property state, meaning property acquired during marriage is usually treated as communal. However, this does not mean property is divided straight down the middle. The court has the power to divide assets equitably based on factors such as your economic situation, the length of your relationship, and how much property is involved. Talk to a Vancouver family law attorney about the likely allocation of your assets.
