How we can help you
Washington state courts consider what is defined as the “best interest of the child” when entering a parenting plan. Contrary to the commonly held belief that Washington is a “mom’s state,” the commissioner or judge is required to address certain factors to determine if the mother or the father should be the primary residential parent. We represent mothers and fathers and prepare our clients for interacting with collateral investigators (if necessary) and appropriately engaging with the other parent. We apply the facts of your situation to the requirements of the state law and fashion a Parenting Plan that reflects your family’s needs. Your parenting plan will address the days and times your children will be with you, how decisions will be made and how future disputes about the parenting plan will be resolved. We support our clients and fashion a durable schedule to accommodate your family’s specific needs.
Each family is different and what seemed adequate or appropriate a few years ago may no longer be relevant to your family or safe for your children. If your family’s needs have changed, please contact us.
