Kitsap County Divorce Lawyer

You Have Questions About Maintenance (Alimony) and Property Division

When I meet with you, I try to answer your most important questions:

  • How do we divide our property?
  • How will I be able to afford to live?
  • Where will I live?
  • Where will my children live?
  • Will my relationship with my children survive?
  • How do I keep my spouse or domestic partner from stealing our property?

We understand that you are anxious about these matters. But one of the greatest services a divorce lawyer can provide is putting a cap on destructive emotions, and inserting ourselves between you and your spouse. We take pains to explain the process at every step, so that you can make calm and collected decisions.

Legal Separation Attorney for Bremerton and Silverdale

Legal separation in Washington is for couples who no longer want to be together, but don't wish to go through the turmoil associated with regular divorce. They choose legal separation because it allows them to maintain married status, and not to disrupt common property, which may include investments, real estate, and retirement funds and Social Security income.

Another reason people look to legal separation is that it allows people with religious convictions against divorce to live apart without divorcing. And sometimes, a legal separation is considered as a kind of trial, to see how it goes. Under state law, either side can switch the decree to a full divorce after six months.

At the Law Offices of Michael A. Dunn, we have helped hundreds of people through the difficulties of divorce and legal separation. Contact Silverdale divorce attorney Mike Dunn by e-mail, or call him at 360-443-4421, toll free 800-673-9826.
