The court considers all property, community and separate, in a divorce.
Separate property is property obtained prior to marriage.
Community property is property acquired during the marriage.
All property is subject to court division in Washington State. Washington is a community property state, so all community property is divided “equitably”. That does not always mean 50/50.
Separate property may also be divided depending on the circumstances; however, separate property usually is awarded to that party who brought it into the marriage.
