In Washington state, community property is typically divided equally between spouses in a divorce. This means that each spouse is entitled to half of all assets and debts acquired during the marriage. Additionally, any property or assets acquired prior to the marriage or received as a gift or inheritance during the marriage are considered separate property and not subject to division.
However, if separate property is commingled with community property, it may become part of the community property and subject to division. The court may also consider other factors, such as the duration of the marriage and each spouse's financial contributions to the marriage, when dividing community property.

Child custody in Washington is decided based on the best interests of the child. The court will consider various factors when deciding on child support including:
1. The child's age, health, and emotional needs
2. The relationship each parent has with the child and the ability of each parent to provide for the child's needs
3. The ability of each parent to provide a stable home environment for the child
4. The child's preference, if the child is of sufficient age and maturity to express a preference
5. Any history of domestic violence, abuse or neglect
6. Each parent's work schedule and availability to care for the child
7. The child's cultural and religious background.
Ultimately, the court will make a decision that is in the best interests of the child. In many cases, parents are able to come to their own agreement about custody and visitation arrangements, which the court can then approve.
