Committed Intimate Relationship Dissolutions
Even if a marriage has not occurred, breaking up can be an emotional and complicated process. Sometimes these relationships may be referred to as “common law marriages,” though there is no common law marriage in Washington. Individuals do still have the right to seek a court ordered division of property during the dissolution of a committed intimate relationship. Issues are often similar to those occurring in a marriage. A divorce attorney from Morton McGoldrick can help you through this process in order to acquire a favorable result.
