Final Hearing / Trial

Although most cases do not go to trial in King County or Snohomish County, WA, if the parties are unable to reach an agreement about all of the issues, then the case proceed to trial. At trial, the parties each present their arguments, admit evidence into the record, and call witnesses to testify to the court. After hearing all of the arguments, reviewing the evidence, and considering the testimony, the trial court will decide any contested issues.

After the divorce, the judge will issue a final order called a Decree of Dissolution and the Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law. In the family courts in Everett, Seattle and Kent, the Final Orders will reflect the determination made by the court and are often drawn up by the judge hearing the trial. A marriage is not dissolved until the judge signs the decree. In cases that involve minor children, the court will also decide the terms of the Final Parenting Plan and a Final Order of Child Support with a Child Support Worksheet.
