The custody and care of a child are the most

important issues of your family law matter.

Those in the midst of a divorce or other child custody dispute spend countless hours worrying about the potential outcomes of their custody case. We understand the specific factors that come into play when family courts determine child custody, and we have the experience and skills to help you as you seek a custody arrangement that is in the best interests of your children and family.

In Washington State, a child’s residential schedule and other parental rights and responsibilities are spelled out in a court-ordered Parenting Plan. A Parenting Plan is determined by agreement of both parties or, when parties cannot agree, it is determined by the court. It includes, among other things, the terms that govern residential time with your children and the degree of decision-making authority that can be exercised by either or both parents.

Establishing child custody directly affects the amount of child support you must pay or may be entitled to receive. If you are the non-custodial, the amount of residential time you are awarded can also have a significant impact on the amount of child support ordered.

We have extensive experience negotiating and litigating custody issues, including parenting plans, residential schedules, and child support. We will help you understand the strengths and weaknesses of your case so you are equipped to make the best decisions for you and your family.
