Olympia Attorney Representing Clients In Divorce

There are two kinds of divorce lawyers: those who work on solving the specific problems of a case, and those who are process-oriented, and treat every case exactly the same.

The second kind will fight vigorously for a sofa, for example, when the client has said he or she doesn't really care about furniture. Such lawyers feel they are "just doing their job" - but it's the wrong job.

Former Judge John E. Turner strives to be in the first group. Judge Turner listens and crafts a customized plan for every client. His No. 1 goal is to get the divorce process behind you, so you can start to create the kind of life you want.

Compassionate And Professional Olympia Divorce Attorney

Family law encompasses a breadth of issues relating to marriage and raising children. John E. Turner and the associates he works with have deep experience in every facet of this practice:

  • Divorce: Whether you are dealing with a contested divorce or uncontested divorce, Judge Turner can provide you with the guidance you need in moving forward with the divorce and your life.
  • Child custody: As part of the divorce process, it is important to keep the children's best interests in mind when attempting to create comprehensive and attentive custody, visitation and parenting plans.
  • Child support: The amount of child support that is to be paid is set by a state statute and calculated by entering certain numbers, such as income of each parent and number of children, into a standard formula.
  • Spousal support/maintenance: Not all cases dictate a need for spousal support. However, your lawyer can advise you whether or not spousal support may be available to you or needs to be fought against.
  • Property division: In Washington, property is divided equally and fairly, but not necessarily 50-50, as our state abides by the law of equitable division and is a community property state.
  • Business valuations: If an individual has some interest or stake in a closely held or family business and is divorcing, it is essential that the business be properly valued to ensure that it is appropriately divided between the spouses during the divorce.
  • High net worth divorce: When a divorce involves high-dollar assets and property, you want a lawyer on your side who can handle the most complex and intricate matters. Judge Turner is this type of attorney.
