The author has twice previously summarized the community property law of Washington. In the eleven years since the most recent effort there have been enough changes to warrant a repetition of the task. Much of the discussion in the 1974 article is still appropriate, needing only reference to any later cases; accordingly, some parts of this article will essentially be an updated and revised version of the earlier article. There are also areas, however, in which the more recent cases prompt a new, more extensive, or modified analysis. The article undertakes that new analysis as well as incorporating the appropriately revised material from 1974, to provide a comprehensive discussion.
