Uncontested divorce in Washington State

There are two major types of divorce in the state of Washington: contested and uncontested.

  • Contested. This type of divorce is inevitable when spouses have some irresolvable disputes concerning such important matters as child support and custody, property division, or alimony. In this case, the divorcees need to hire lawyers to defend their interests in court. Such kind of dissolution is extremely expensive and stressful for all the parties involved.
  • Uncontested. This option works for couples who have managed to resolve all the arguments and come to an agreement. This type of divorce is cheaper and faster because you do not necessarily need to hire an attorney and can represent yourself in court. Uncontested divorces are usually finalized as soon as the waiting period in the state is over.

Getting a divorce in Washington state with a child

There are various things that parents need to consider during a divorce process:

  • Parents are required to create a Parenting Plan, including all the details of where and when the child will live as well as how the spouses are going to make child-related decisions.
  • Judges are usually inclined to accept Parenting Plans that parents agree upon, especially if there is nothing that can be deemed not to be in child’s best interests.
  • If spouses cannot agree on the plan, they have to go to mediation, where the professional mediator will help them do it. If the mediation is unsuccessful, the judge will make a final decision.
  • Both parents can be granted joint decision-making rights if they demonstrate willingness and readiness to cooperate. Moreover, a judge is unlikely to give sole custody to one of the parents unless there are reasons why the other parent is not fit.
  • Divorcees have to attend parenting classes, which are held in a lecture format.
  • If the child is considered mature enough, his or her opinion on custody will also be taken into account.
