At Engel Law Group, we know that you’re facing one of the most difficult decisions of your life. You’ll be experiencing a variety of emotions and stress, but having your legal interests in the hands of our experts helps lessen the burden.
• Uncontested Divorce
If you and your spouse are in agreement on matter such as custody and child support, the process is easier, but you still need expert legal advice to ensure the legal details are handled correctly.
• High Net Worth Divorce
In Washington State, everything acquired during the course of a marriage must be divided evenly. In the case of high net worth divorces, lengthy trials are fairly common and require legal advice and experience.
• Collaborative Divorce
A collaborative divorce means a couple has decided to work out all agreements amicably. While this is the preferred route, a collaborative divorce requires each party sign a document stating they will not litigate.
• Military Divorce
We represent military clients in every aspect of divorce, including marital property division, child custody and spousal support. At Engel, we’re aware that military divorces are affected directly by laws applying to those serving active duty and discharge time.
- Cohabitation Agreements
Engel Law Group drafts cohabitation agreements that address key issues in a relationship. We recommend that each party use a separate lawyer to avoid conflicts of interest, and as a final step, we ensure that the document is fair and signed without duress.
- Child Custody
At Engel Law Group, our attorneys work with you to create a parenting plan and also help with temporary orders and making modifications to existing agreements.
- Child Support
At Engel Law Group, we use our skills and legal knowledge to fight for the welfare of your children. If your spouse is withholding income, we’ll prove that in court so you get what you lawfully deserve.
- Family Law Mediation
The attorneys from Engel Law Group are highly knowledgeable and experienced. We’re also sensitive to what’s going on in your life, and we’ll work closely with you to answer questions and act as a source of knowledge, answering all of your questions and making sure you understand the process, no matter how detailed.
- Fathers’ Rights
If you desire full custody, we can also help with that. Remember that the child’s best interests are the highest concern of the court, and if the mother is unfit, the court will take note.
We know that your child is precious, and making sure he or she has the financial support needed is important to the team at Engel Law Group. The same procedure can be followed by a father seeking to win visitation rights to his child.
- Post-Decree Modifications
Changes which happen to each spouse that effect the terms of a divorce are referred to as post-decree matters and can include a parenting plan, child support agreements or spousal support.
- Postnuptial Agreements
Married partners looking for a postnuptial agreement should contact Engel Law Group. We can clarify matters and take care of important issues such as ensuring all property and assets are listed.
- Prenuptial Agreements
Clients in the Seattle area have sought out Engel Law Group for help with their prenuptial agreements. We realize that this type of legal process has an unwarranted negative reputation, and we work with you to ensure that the prenuptial agreement is regarded as a “just in case” step.
- Property Division
Classifying what belongs to who can result in uncomfortable, even heated, discussions. The lawyers on our team have the experience to help you navigate such processes as the division of marital property, including debt division.
In the event that you are moving and need to alert your spouse, Engel Law Group can work with you to alert your ex-spouse of the intended move and proceed legally and correctly.
- Same-Sex Legal Issues
Engel Law Group has a great degree of experience in the area of same-sex couples and their rights. Our goal is to work with you and your partner to ensure that ever eventuality is covered and taken care of in the legal sense.
- Spousal Support and Alimony
There are a variety of factors that determine amount and length of time. These are determined by a judge, but the professionals at Engel Law Group can help ensure that you receive the proper compensation on a monthly basis.
- Qualified Domestic Relations Orders
The QDRO is handy, but complicated and should be prepared and filed by an attorney at Engel Law Group. The order will include every detail of the retirement plan, along with the specific language needed to stipulate the how, when and to whom the funds are distributed.
