My particular practice as a legal technician is focused on helping clients reach higher end goals. I believe individuals are best able to resolve their differences, rather than turning and returning to the unpredictability of the overburdened court system.

My interest is not in high conflict, litigation cases, but in helping self-aware, mature adults resolve interpersonal conflict and dissolve their marriage. If you have children, the best interest of your children remains a priority. My clients understand the importance of moving forward with their lives and crafting their own new normal. 

Should your approach match mine, call or email to set up a consultation time to discuss your matter in further detail. Consultations last 1 - 1 1/2 hours and cost $125, payable in advance.  I offer evening and weekend appointments.

Working with Laura

Compassion and Experience

I will guide you step by step tocomplete the proper court forms, file with the court on your behalf, and, with agreed cases, I can finalize your divorce for you. You will not have to step foot in the courthouse, and will receive copies of your final documents electronically.  

 

After our initial meeting, you will sign an engagement agreement outlining the services I will perform for you. I typically require an advanced fee deposit in an amount to be determined by the work to be performed. Flat fee options may be available. We will meet again by phone or virtually to discuss your matter in greater detail.  You complete an intake form, and I will get started drafting your documents. Turn around is often about a week.   

Filing for Divorce

Next steps

The Superior Court of Washington requires multiple forms to be completed and filed with the court to complete your dissolution. You may have received divorced papers (been served) and not know what to do with the forms or what the forms mean. I can help! I will explain the forms to you and talk with you about the court process. We can determine next steps then select and complete proper forms for your situation. Legal Technicians cannot represent you in court or negotiate for you, but when the time comes to complete your dissolution I will be sure you are prepared. 

Forms

Making the decision to end your marriage with childrenis a complicated and difficult decision.  Studies by the Family Court in Australia have shown the harmful effects of high levels of parental conflict. A well thought out Parenting Plan, ideally created with input from both parents, should give children stability and parents a minimal amount of flexibility.  Click here to get a court form to help you start thinking about what the court looks for in a parenting plan. (This example form is for married parents.)
