King County Spousal Maintenance Attorney

Issues surrounding spousal maintenance after a long term marriage can be exponentially more challenging. Couples who have been married for 25 or more years are likely accustomed to a certain financial stability.

In a recent case, Marriage of Rockwell, the courts decided that when the parties have been married for more than 25 years, it is the court's job to put the parties in equal financial positions for the remainder of their lives. This decision can greatly impact the determination of spousal maintenance and the division of retirement or pension plans. You need a knowledgeable Washington lawyer who understands the complexity of these issues and can guide you through the process.
