Washington State Family Law Resources

Print and online sources for attorneys and people without attorneys


Family law issues—adoption, child custody and support, community property, divorce, etc.—are governed by state law. This guide identifies some of the useful print and online sources for conducting research on Washington State family law.

See also the related Gallagher guide on Family Law Research & Practice Guide, which includes sources with a broader scope (that is, the sources are not Washington State-specific) that may be useful to Washington law researchers.
