Our Vancouver Mediation Attorneys Can Help
Mediation provides an excellent and cost-effective environment in which you and your family can develop a practical and lasting solution to the issues at stake. This approach provides privacy and flexibility that you cannot get in court. Your unique needs, goals, and values are not taken into account when you turn your case over to the court to resolve. Our experienced Vancouver mediation attorneys can help guide you through the process.
Our family law attorneys serve Vancouver, Washington and all of Clark County. McKinley Irvin also regularly represents clients across the Columbia and Willamette Rivers in Portland, Oregon, who need family law assistance in multiple jurisdictions. We assist local, national, and international clients involved in Washington and Oregon divorce and family law matters. For the convenience of our clients, we also facilitate consultation and ongoing client meetings through videoconferencing and teleconferencing, which provides local clients an excellent opportunity to avoid traffic, and out-of-state and international clients an opportunity to speak face-to-face with their attorney despite great distances.

Vancouver Divorce Frequently Asked Questions
I live in Washington but my spouse lives in Oregon. Where should I file for divorce?
When a family law case involves multiple jurisdictions, there are many things to consider. Our Vancouver divorce lawyers often assist clients in cases that do not respect borders. A qualified divorce attorney can help you determine the logical course of action for your circumstances. Speak with our client services representatives about scheduling a meeting with the right attorney for you.
How is spousal support determined in Vancouver?
The court has significant discretion in determining spousal support, also known as “spousal maintenance” or “alimony.” Many other factors are considered, such as your financial resources, your standard of living, the length of your marriage, and your age and health. Continue reading about spousal support in our Guide to Getting a Divorce in Washington State.
How long does a divorce take in Vancouver?
The length of time before a divorce is finalized varies greatly. At the very minimum, there is a 90 day waiting period in Washington after you have filed your petition before divorce can be finalized. After that, it depends. Usually, Washington divorce cases take between four to eighteen months. Your attorney can give you an idea of how long your divorce case will take in Vancouver. Read our Guide to Getting a Divorce in Washington State for further information.
Will our assets be split equally?
Washington is a community property state, meaning property acquired during marriage is usually treated as communal. However, this does not mean property is divided straight down the middle. The court has the power to divide assets equitably based on factors such as your economic situation, the length of your relationship, and how much property is involved. Talk to a Vancouver family law attorney about the likely allocation of your assets.
