Family Law Services For Your Changing Family

All families change over time, and sometimes those changes need to be formalized. Whether your family is changing in a way that is welcome or painful, Cooney Law Offices will help you work through the legal process as quickly and efficiently as possible so that you can move onto the next chapter of your life.

A Wide Range Of Family Law Services

We offer family law services including:

  • Divorce: Dissolve your marriage or enter into legal separation.
  • Division of property: Washington is a "community property" state, which means that all property jointly owned by both spouses must be divided equally between them.
  • Spousal support/alimony: Some spouses continue to have a financial relationship after their divorce, depending on each spouse's income, domestic and child-rearing responsibilities during the marriage, and other factors.
  • Child custody and visitation: Couples with minor children must make a plan for those children after the divorce. This requires the parents to answer questions such as where the children will live and how often they will see each parent.
  • Child support: Child support payments can be used to make up for differences in child care responsibilities as well as differences in income between parents.
  • Modifications to existing arrangements: Family needs change over time, and formal legal arrangements governing your family may change, too. A 4-year-old, for instance, has very different needs from a 13-year-old, so parenting plans should be modified to reflect such changes. Likewise, financial situations change and you may need to alter the support arrangements for your family.
  • Adoption: We can help you work through the complicated process of adopting a child, whether that child is a stepchild, coming from the household of another family member, or from across the world.
