WASHINGTON DIVORCE AND NEGOTIATION FOR SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT

Readers in Washington know that when a couple decides that they want to end their marriage they face many issues. Some of these include entering into negotiations for the division of property and decisions regarding spousal maintenance. In some instances these negotiations aimed at achieving a final divorce agreement can become contentious.

The good news for spouses seeking a divorce is that as many as 95 percent of couples that end their marriage do so without court intervention. However, the court can become involved in cases where spouses are unable to agree as to terms for spousal maintenance and property division. The court may require evidence such as bank statements, financial accounts and income information as the process moves forward.

In one recent case that may be of interest to our Washington readers a couple that had been high profile in the social scene of their hometown have decided to seek a divorce. The couple announced their dissolution via Facebook. At the time of the announcement, the wife said that she wished to remain in the area with her two children.

Negotiating the terms of a divorce can be difficult for some couples in Washington. However, once they are completed, most couples are able to move forward with their newly single lives. Before that happens it may be helpful to those in the divorce process to complete a full review of all financial information available so as to best determine how to come to an agreement as to the terms of a divorce.
