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 welcomed or painful, Cooney Law Offices will help you work through the legal process as quickly and efficiently as possible.

A Wide Range Of Family Law Services

We offer family law services, including:

  • Divorce: We help dissolve your marriage or enter into legal separation.
  • Division of property: Washington is a “community property” state, which means that each spouse has legally mandated rights with regard to property acquired both during, and possibly before, the marriage.
  • 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. Parenting plans can be modified to reflect such changes. Likewise, financial situations change, and you may need to alter an existing support arrangement for your family.
