PRIVATE CLIENT SERVICES
Going through a divorce is one of the most difficult experiences a person can face. No one enters into a marriage believing that it will one day end prematurely but sometimes reality does not align with expectations. If you have children, the challenges of divorce become even more traumatic.
It’s important to realize that no two divorces are ever the same. If you have a number of high-value assets, investment accounts, and real estate, the process can become quite complicated, especially if the situation becomes contentious. Alimony, child custody, and child support issues often bring an emotionally charged element into the proceedings. If you’re not careful, you may quickly find yourself overwhelmed.

Understanding Divorce and the Washington State Family Law Court
Whether you live in Downtown Seattle, Redmond, Bellevue, Everett, or one of the many other communities in the region, your divorce proceedings will be handled by the Washington Family Court. Nobody enjoys dealing with the court system, regardless of the situation, and with good reason. Washington law is complicated and this is especially true of the family law court, which is why you need to work with a Seattle family law lawyer capable of empowering you with the legal information you need to make sound decisions.
It’s important to understand that it’s extremely unlikely you will get everything you want out of your divorce, even if you feel as though you were wronged by your former spouse. Along the way, you are going to need reliable counsel from your divorce lawyer. There are likely going to be situations where we tell you something you don’t want to hear, but sometimes it’s important to understand that these are the things you need to hear.
Your divorce attorney always has your best interests at heart and you should enter into the divorce process with an open mind and a willingness to compromise. If you and your former spouse fail to compromise and divorce proceedings fall apart, a family court judge will be forced to make decisions regarding your future.
Who do you think is better equipped to make life-altering decisions regarding your life and the lives of your children? You or a random family court judge?
The answer is obvious, yet it’s common for issues involving child custody, support, and alimony to quickly become contentious. When emotions overpower reason, you need a family law attorney by your side who can help you maintain focus.
Rest assured that every divorce lawyer at Wong Fleming has your best interests in mind from the start of your divorce proceedings to the finish. Not only will we fight to protect your legal rights, but we will also take the time to help you manage your stress by building a relationship based on trust.
How Your Divorce Attorney Fights to Protect Your Interests
Most people enter into a divorce with little knowledge about the process other than what they’ve seen on TV and in the movies. Suddenly confronted with a failing marriage, it’s common to seek out advice from friends and on the internet. However, you need to understand that most of what you read on the web and hear from friends is either misleading or utterly false.
After your free consultation, you will decide whether our experienced legal team is the right fit for you. If you choose to work with one of our professional family law lawyers, they will immediately begin working to uncover the details of your case.
Throughout this process, there is no substitute for legal experience. Depending on your situation, you may have options you have never considered or even knew about. Consider the following:
Does your spouse have bank accounts or assets that were hidden from you?
If you and your spouse signed a prenuptial agreement, is it still binding under the law?
Can you protect assets that you owned before getting married?
As a man, what are your child custody rights?
Are you entitled to alimony?
These are just a few of the questions that will need answers. Your Seattle divorce lawyer will conduct an intensive investigation of the facts, seeking to uncover valuable information that will ensure you are being treated fairly.
Once your divorce attorney uncovers the facts pertinent to your case, they will then work with you to develop a strategy based on the law. When you have a deep understanding of your situation through the eyes of Washington State divorce law, you will be better prepared to handle the process.
