Family Law

The ending of a marriage is one of the most stressful events individuals can go through. Dealing with divorce and custody issues can be very personal and emotionally trying. Having an advocate to guide you through the process of legally terminating a marriage and ensuring your rights are protected can help ease the stress of ending a marital relationship. Marie Washington has the knowledge, experience, and skill you need to achieve a resolution in any of the following family law matters:

  • Divorce
  • Custody and Visitation
  • Child and Spousal Support / Alimony
  • Property Division / Equitable Distribution
  • Premarital and postmarital agreements
  • Protective Order

Marie Washington understands the delicate nature of a divorce and will take the time to listen closely to your concerns. The dissolution of marriage is an emotionally and financially challenging situation that affects not only your personal and professional lives but your children as well.

Ms. Washington encourages mediation, arbitration, and negotiation as the most effective way of reaching an agreement, because it is less stressful, less expensive, and eliminates the uncertainty of a judge’s order at trial. Reaching an agreement with your spouse and avoiding a lengthy litigation process may also help preserve relationships and communication among family members.

However, if a satisfactory resolution cannot be reached through mediation, arbitration and negotiation, Ms. Washington is prepared to go to court and aggressively represent her client’s interests.
