Family law is about the most important relationships in your life. It includes divorce, committed intimate relationships, maintenance / alimony, parenting plans, and child support. We can help you reconfigure your relationship with your spouse in a way that minimizes collateral damage to your children and your other relationships. We can help you preserve your assets, your sanity, and your peace of mind.
A mediated divorce is about getting divorced in a manner that conserves your financial and emotional resources and allows you to maintain a relationship with your spouse. If you and your spouse are on speaking terms, trust each other, and can remain cordial in the same room together, you are a candidate for a mediated divorce.
Indian law is about the intersection of federal, state, and tribal law. If you are a tribal member, or if you are a non-tribal member dealing with an Indian tribe, you have an Indian law issue. We appear regularly in tribal courts throughout western Washington. We have particular expertise in areas of Indian law that intersect with areas of family law, e.g. custody of Indian children and the Indian Child Welfare Act.
