Preparing for Your Divorce In Washington
Washington Child Custody Laws
A "parenting plan" is essentially a custody schedule that sets forth the following:
- each parent's decision-making responsibility over the child
- residential provisions (including where the child will live)
- holiday and summer vacation visitation schedule
- each parent's responsibility for transporting the child between visits
- child support award, and
- how the parents will resolve disputes.
- Washington state custody laws recognize both temporary and permanent parenting plans.
When there's no parenting plan in your Washington state case, a judge may issue a temporary parenting plan. "Temporary Parenting Plans" are a custody schedule that a judge puts in place for a limited amount of time. For example, you and your spouse might need to abide by a temporary parenting plan while your divorce or custody case is finalized.
Just like a permanent or final parenting plan, a temporary parenting plan will address each parent's rights to make medical or educational decisions on the child's behalf. A temporary parenting plan will also decide when and where visits and exchanges of the child will take place.
Our divorce attorneys take a realistic, transparent approach to both uncontested and contested divorce situations—including counseling our clients on what to expect from the opposing lawyer, judge and the other spouse on issues ranging from division of property and debts to spousal support.
Our child support attorneys understand that children are the most impressionable, vulnerable and many times, helpless participants in divorce proceedings. We use this knowledge to help support and advocate for the best interests of you and your children throughout the entire legal process.
Every child deserves to live comfortably no matter which parent they are with. Whether you are the recipient or provider of child support, our lawyers will help guide you through the daunting world of child support calculators. We are here to banish the financial panic that comes with childcare.
