Deciding about whether you should get a divorce or not is an agonizing experience to go through. If you are asking yourself should I get a divorce?, you’ve been thinking about your relationships state for a while or an isolated incident that occurred was so terrible, that you want to just chuck it all and start over with a new life!
The divorce is over, or nearly so. You have cried, you have grieved, maybe you have raged. Now, like a glimmer of dawn after a stormy night, the idea of a better future begins to attract your attention. The opportunities that now exist become apparent and you may actually feel excited about your life again.
Property division in Washington is equitable. This means all marital property and debts are distributed justly and equitably, but this does not always mean that there is an equal, 50/50 division of property and debts. The court examines the nature and extent of both marital and separate property, the duration of the marriage, the party paying expenses and debts, and any special circumstances. Property and debts are divided regardless of misconduct or fault.
