Have Questions? Our Seattle Divorce Lawyer Can Help.
Washington is a community property state. This means that both spouses own an equal interest in all of the property acquired during the marriage from community funds. Unless a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement specifically provides otherwise, all income earned by the spouses during the marriage is community property. This property can include:
- Physical property such as a house
- Bank accounts (including savings)
Property division is an extremely important part of any dissolution or separation. Individuals have a right to a just and equitable share of all the property to which they have a legal claim.
