"LegalAtoms accurately creates the divorce application. We had an uncontested case with no assets but we still wanted to ensure that the paper work is just right. I filed at Spokane County and everything went fine"
Bremerton, Mark C.
"LegalAtoms informed me about important distinctions in parenting plan and child support, which has positively changed my post divorce life. It gave me several options for the parenting plan. Educating myself helped me secure a more favorable arragement where I get to spend time with my children not just based on my ex's availability but also my own convenience"

"LegalAtoms lawyer was very knowledgeable and guided me through the divorce process. We disagreed on child custody and went on to the route of mediation. That was a better outcome than a trial. The lawyer's work was very superb, something I really appreciate now looking back at a very difficult period in my life."
