Factors that cause divorce can prompt legal problems

Most Washington spouses understand that there is no such thing as a perfect marriage. That, however, does not necessarily make it any easier to overcome marital problems that arise. The issue is not so much whether spouses will encounter problems along the their journeys, as most will. Rather, the main issue is whether or not those problems will lead to divorce.

Issues and emotions that often arise in divorce

Many Washington couples are currently having serious marital problems. In fact, hundreds of people throughout the state will likely file for divorce by year's end or shortly thereafter. Others who have already gone through divorce proceedings say they were caught off guard by certain issues and situations that arose. Every relationship is unique but such issues may be more common than expected.

Seeking a fair custody arrangement

Choosing to divorce is rarely easy, especially when there are children involved. For many couples divorcing in the Everett area, military service also plays a large part in the divorce, which can complicate child custody issues even further.

The complex reality of sharing custody with your former spouse

Most people initiate divorce proceedings because they are unhappy in their marriage or experiencing serious issues with their spouse. In situations where the couple has children together, however, divorce will not be the end of the relationship. Instead, it will serve as a transition to a new form of relationship.

Jon and Kate Gosselin having custody and parenting issues

When Washington parents divorce, they must each propose a co-parenting plan regarding any and all custody, visitation and child support issues that pertain to their family. When the court ultimately issues an order, both parents must adhere to the terms. It's always a good idea, however, to keep all relevant documents on hand, as well as contact information for legal support, in case any custody and parenting problems surface later on, as seems to be the case for Jon and Kate Gosselin, the former reality TV stars of "Jon & Kate Plus 8."
