Property Division Lawyer

Washington is a community property state, which means it views all property, assets, and debts acquired during a marriage as belonging equally to both spouses.

At Gallagher Law, we understand that property division is a critical aspect of the divorce process, and we are here to navigate this complex terrain with you. Washington State operates under the principle of community property, which means that the law presumes joint ownership of assets acquired during the marriage, regardless of who obtained them. When a divorce occurs, the court aims to distribute the marital property in a manner that is fair, equitable, and considers the unique circumstances of each case.

Our experienced property division attorneys will guide you through the intricacies of the law and work diligently to ensure that your rights and interests are protected during the division of assets. We recognize that property acquired during the marriage may hold significant financial and emotional value, and we are committed to achieving a just and balanced distribution for you.

Our approach to property division is both strategic and compassionate. We will advocate on your behalf to protect assets that hold personal significance and those that are crucial for your future financial stability. Throughout the process, we will keep you informed, explain your options, and work collaboratively to achieve the best possible outcome.

At Gallagher Law, we recognize that property division can be emotionally challenging, especially when it involves shared memories and financial concerns. Our compassionate attorneys are dedicated to guiding you through this process with empathy and strength, providing you with the support and representation you need to move forward confidently into the next chapter of your life.
