Property Division in Washington
Washington is a community property state. Property acquired during a marriage is typically classified as community property, with limited exceptions. Separate property includes property acquired by a spouse prior to a marriage and limited property acquired during a marriage, including property acquired by gift or inheritance.
All property in a dissolution is subject to court review. While a court may divide community property on an equal 50/50 basis, equitable division does not require an equal 50/50 split.
Resolving Property Disputes
It is typically in the best interests of spouses to reach an agreement regarding property division. If your spouse refuses to be reasonable, however, you will need a skilled trial lawyer on your side.
Attorney Michael R. Morrison has been representing clients in divorce and family law matters for more than 15 years. As a skilled negotiator and trial lawyer, he can provide the vigorous representation you require.
Michael R. Morrison brings to each case a strong financial background, having earned an MBA from Seattle University. Mr. Morrison is prepared to handle property division issues that may arise in your case, including:
- Characterization of property (community vs. separate property)
- Valuation of assets (marital home and other assets)
- Division of retirement accounts

- Division of real estate and the marital home
- Division of stocks, mutual funds and investment accounts
To ensure the protection of your rights, attorney Michael R. Morrison will look at your entire financial picture, including the impact of how child support, spousal support and responsibility for marital debts may impact your future.
