When you are in the middle of a divorce or are thinking about filing for divorce, you probably have many questions. At the divorce and family law offices of Anderson, Fields, Dermody & McIlwain, Inc., P.S., we meet with clients every day who have questions and concerns just like yours. Since 1970, our divorce lawyers have been guiding individuals through the divorce and legal separation process. We have helped them understand that divorce isn't just about ending a relationship; it is about beginning a new life.

Answering your questions throughout the divorce

If you need a divorce lawyer, contact a firm with lawyers who have years of experience helping people understand spousal maintenance (alimony), legal separation, custody, and support. We are highly knowledgeable about the laws of Washington state. We use that knowledge to advocate for our clients' best interests.

Our law firm provides clients with comprehensive representation in all aspects of contested or uncontested divorce, including:

Many of these issues are highly contentious. Attorney H. Michael Finesilver (f/k/a Fields) has received formal training as a mediator and arbitrator. He uses his knowledge to help people get to a place where they can arrive at mutually acceptable solutions before and after dissolution of a marriage.

Legal separation as an alternative to divorce

If you hope to reconcile or are philosophically opposed to divorce, our law firm can help. We advise clients about their options for legal separation under Washington law, making sure they understand that the state will not force anyone to remain married. We also discuss the possibility that a legal separation will turn into a divorce. In either case, we draft the necessary documents and petitions that finalize a separation and protect our clients' rights.

Reasonable fees help reduce anxiety and stress

We are also committed to keeping our attorneys' fees low-in fact, lower than most firms in this area with comparable experience. We do our best to reduce the stress that you naturally feel about your divorce and your future. For more than 30 years we have been accepting clients on a case-by-case basis in order to provide you with the personal attention you deserve from your attorney.
