I’ve Never Seen that Before.

These are five words you never want to hear from your doctor, your mechanic, your plumber, or your dentist.  The same is true from your divorce attorney.  When and if that time comes in your life you don’t want to be sitting across the desk from someone who appears to be a “deer in the headlights”.  You need a steady, experienced veteran.

There are plenty of choices among family attorneys.  Anyone with a law degree can “hang up a shingle” and choose this branch of the law in which to practice.  Many are called…few are chosen.  One thing about family law in Washington State is that it has changed over the decades and you want to hire someone who has experienced those changes.

One of the best veteran family attorneys in the Seattle area is Lyle Clark.  Consider Attorney Lyle Clark very carefully at this critical juncture.  He has over four decades of experience as a Seattle metro divorce attorney.  Visit his website at then call for a consultation at his Bellevue office (425) 452-3092.

What is the meaning of Irretrievably Broken?

Some states use the phrase “irreconcilable differences” as legal grounds for obtaining a divorce.  Washington State is different. When our legislature adopted the Marriage Dissolution Act in 1973, the intent was to remove fault from the legal proceedings to the fullest extent possible.  Thus, the only grounds for dissolution of a marriage is that it be irretrievably broken.

Washington thus did away entirely with what had until then been the legal grounds for divorce:  infidelity, cruelty, or abandonment.  It is simply time to part company and seek a happier life.  Let’s look at the dictionary definition of irretrievable.  It means “impossible to regain or recover.”  Divorce is not the end of the world … just the end of a chapter.

In the State of Washington we use this term rather than “no fault” although they essentially mean the same thing.  Take a deep breath and make the call that you may have been putting off thinking that things would improve.  Call Bellevue WA marriage dissolution attorney Lyle Clark.  Attorney Clark will guide you through the process.  His number is (425) 452-3092.
