Custody And Relocation

The courts will look at a number of factors when determining custodial arrangements for children. The most important factor is determining arrangements based on the best interests of the child. It is much more common today for joint custody to be given, where both parents equally share time with the child. We will explain the process of determining custody and explain likely outcomes for your situation.

If your situation has changed and you need assistance with matters involving relocation, we will represent your interests. Washington courts will look at a number of factors in child relocation cases, and we have experience advocating for parents seeking relocation and those contesting relocation.

Parenting Time Agreements In Pierce County And Throughout Washington

Parenting schedules are developed to reflect the time that both parents spend with the child. This plan is very important and will be approved by the courts only if the plan reflects the child's best interests. When you work with our child custody lawyers in Tacoma, we will work with you to develop a parenting time agreement that works best for your children and protects their interests.
