Washington Community Property Agreement Rcw

The Court of Appeal found that the Trial Court erred in character characterization of the property as distinct because the community ownership agreement had converted all the separate properties to community property at the time of signing. In re Mariage de Schweitzer, 81 Wash. App. 589, 594-95, 915 p.2d 575 (1996). The court held that the trial court wrongly considered extrinsic evidence of the parties` intent because the evidence contradicted the written terms of the agreement. Since the Court of Appeal had held that the Community ownership contract was enforceable, it did not rule on whether Mr Schweitzer had sufficiently traced his individual assets. The court also found that the trial court erred in deciding that the expenses and debts incurred for Tony`s education were The sole responsibility of Ms. Schweitzer.
