Our Washington State child custody attorneys understand the importance of developing a Parent Plan that is uniquely tailored to meet the best needs of your children.


When parents separate, one of the first things they must do is work out how this action will affect their children.  Responsibility for their children’s care must come from both parents, as this is an essential part of a child’s rearing.  The mutually agreed upon plans related to a child’s residency and upbringing are referred to as “parenting plans,” and while it can be difficult for parents to reach an agreement, our Washington State parenting plan modification lawyers can help.  Things can get even more challenging when a parent seeks to change an existing plan that was finalized when they were divorced.

 

Our Washington State parenting plan attorneys help parents work together through careful consideration of the details that are most important for their children’s upbringing.  Our Washington State child custody lawyers accomplish this by urging parents to prevent emotional conflict and animosity from interfering with the natural progression of negotiations. 

 

Deciding who the primary residential parent will be is obviously a major consideration, as is determining visitation rights.  The plan will also need to focus on how decisions that affect the child will be made, how disagreements will be mitigated, and who will have control over the child’s education options and religious affiliation. 

 

Our Washington State parenting plan modification attorneys urge parents to work out an agreement, even on the most contentious of issues.  This is primarily to prevent going to court and having a judge make a ruling about what they think is best for your children.  Our Washington State child custody lawyers believe that no one is better suited to make decisions for your family than you, and we will do everything we can to help you reach agreement that is fair and acceptable.
