But it absolutely vital that the basic foundation for your goals be set and worked towards from day one.

Most Thurston County divorce cases go through three fairly distinct stages.

The three stages of your divorce case.
Most Thurston County divorce cases go through three stages. The first stage is the "Temporary Orders" stage. During this stage, many preliminary matters must be resolved. Who will stay in the primary residence? Who will have primary residential custody of the children? What will the Parenting Plan look like? Who will pay what bills? Who will have use of what property?
If the parties cannot agree on these issues, a commissioner will decide them at a "Temporary Motions Hearing" after considering evidence from both parties.
The second stage of your case will be the discovery and negotiations stage. During this stage, documents and information regarding income, assets, pensions, etc. need to be produced. Issues surrounding custody and visitation are often also explored. As a fuller picture is developed, negotiations often commence with the hope of avoiding a full blown Thurston County divorce trial.
The third stage actually begins a couple of months before your trial date. If the parties have been unable to resolve the matter through negotiations, trial preparation begins. The parties may also be required to attend mediation.
During this stage, negotiations often intensify as the trial date approaches. If your case remains unresolved, a judge will listen to the evidence and enter final orders. This will bring your case to a close. If your case needs to go to trial, our Olympia divorce attorneys will be ready.
