As with most states, divorce has its own nuances in the Evergreen State. Remember the days when you had to state a reason why you wanted to end your union with your spouse and then defend it in divorce court? Those times created strife within a household as people grew apart and the minor children suffered in the process.
Here are some steps in the Washington State divorce process –
1. It begins when you file a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage.
2. The next step is to serve the petition or to have your spouse accept service.
3. If both parties agree to all of the issues it is considered an uncontested divorce.
4. Temporary orders may be filed to address certain specific issues.
