Getting divorced? Hiring a lawyer can be an expensive undertaking, especially in this economy. Depending on the type of issues that need to be resolved, you may be able to hire a lawyer to simply "coach" you through the process. If so, this could save you thousands of dollars.
Alimony is called maintenance in Washington. A spouse seeking to obtain maintenance must specifically request it in his or her divorce papers. In determining the need, duration, and amount of maintenance, the court considers the finances of each spouse, including income, debts, tax liability, investments, and property, the work experience and earning capacity of each spouse, including education and training, the age and physical abilities of each spouse, the duration of the marriage, and the standard of living attained during the marriage.
