Q. Since Washington is a “Community Property” state, does that mean my spouse and I each get 50% of our property and debt?

A. No! Our divorce law sites that property should be divided equitably, which means fairly. Judges can and do frequently divide property and debt disproportionately so that the party with less income gets more than 50% of the property and less than 50% of the debit.
