When parties mediate in their family law legal process, many times one or both parties have attorneys with whom each is working who can give him or her legal advice about the settlement issues and proposals.
Myths about family mediation abound, and are mostly due to a lack of mutual understanding between attorneys and mediators.
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.
