Many family law issues involve stressful situations and can impact children, parents, and the family for years to come. This is why it is so important to have the right person on your side to guide you through the family court process, make sure your interests are represented, and protect your children and financial assets.

“My Marriage Has Come to an End”
If your marriage has come to an end and you are seeking a divorce or your spouse wants a divorce, you are in the right place. A divorce or legal separation is a life-changing event and you may be overwhelmed with the changes while trying to go about your daily life. A brief conversation with an experienced Washington family lawyer will help put you at ease knowing that you have someone on your side who will fight for your rights and guide you through the difficult times.
“I Want to Spend More Time With My Children”
Child custody and support are some of the most hotly contested issues in a divorce. Getting the right parenting plan, support payments, and visitation schedule from the beginning will help provide for your children and give them a stable home life. It can be easier to get the right parenting plan the first time rather than go back to the court for a change or modification. However, if you want to spend more time with your children, talk to your family law attorney about your options and the best strategy in your case.
Guardian Ad Litem in Washington
A guardian ad litem is an individual appointed by the courts to represent a child and act in the child's best interests. As an experienced guardian ad litem in Washington family courts, responsibilities include:
- Preparing reports and attend court hearings;
- Monitoring compliance with court orders and inform the court of any change of circumstances that may require a modification of the court's orders; and
- Visiting the child in various settings and report observations to the court.
Family Law Mediation in Pierce, King, and Snohomish Counties
Judges in Washington family courts often refer disputes and cases to mediation. Mediation is a less confrontational setting that allows the parties to come up with their own resolution that is best for both parties.
At the Law Offices of Alesha Struthers, I am a Certified Mediator Practitioner from the Dispute Resolution Center of Snohomish and Island Counties, since 2009. As a mediator, I have helped parties reach agreements that are specific to their family needs as an alternative to resolving disputes in court. Through family law mediation, I have helped individuals mediate family court issues, including:
- New parenting plans
- Parenting plan modifications
- Visitation modifications
