Divorce or Legal Separation.

It’s been a while since we have discussed this, but as we head into summer you may be thinking about one of the above.  So, which is better for you AND any children involved?  If you wish to put off a divorce for now you must NOT just abandon your household.  Applying for a legal separation may be appropriate.  This is where love might be the trump card!  If you want to remarry you certainly cannot do it during a legal separation.

In the State of Washington, if you are granted a legal separation the court will not dissolve the marriage.  Unlike a marriage dissolution proceeding, there is no 90-day waiting period before a decree may be entered.  A decree of legal separation may subsequently be converted to a decree of dissolution of marriage, but not for six months after the legal separation has been granted.  As in a marriage dissolution proceeding, the court may divide your community and separate property, adopt a parenting plan, and award child support and maintenance.

It is important to consult with a professional family attorney in the Seattle area who has dealt with the pros and cons of these two choices.  That man may well be Bellevue, WA divorce and legal separation lawyer Lyle M. Clark.  Get to know your options from a nearly 4-decade veteran of family law by calling (425) 452-3092.

Meet a Seattle Area Family Attorney.

Knowing a quality family lawyer is like knowing a great medical practitioner.  When you find one with decades of experience and success you tend to feel much more comfortable.  We see these “high powered” divorce lawyers on TV and wonder…are they all cutthroat?  That is not the case most of the time.

Lyle Clark Jr. is a Seattle native.  He graduated from Washington State University as a proud member of “Cougar Nation”.  His beginnings were humble as an intern prosecuting misdemeanors for the city of Lacey.  One day, he set out on his own as a sole practitioner in the city of Bellevue.

Today, Seattle family attorney Lyle Clark can look back at four decades of service to the people of the Evergreen State.  An English major in college, he is an avid reader…and, yes he is great in the Shakespeare category on Jeopardy!  Get to know a man who has practiced for decades as a passionate family lawyer by calling (425) 452 3092.
