Child Custody in Seattle

Our Qualified Seattle Custody Attorneys Will Help You Deal With This Sensitive Issue

Child custody issues often require parents to make tough choices as they negotiate the details of their divorce and parenting plan. When decisions must be made regarding child custody, visitation rights, and financial support emotions can run high and arguments may ensue. The Seattle child custody attorneys at the Washington Family Law Group can help you manage this stressful process, and will diligently fight to protect you and your child's legal interests.

Both parents must make decisions regarding custody and support with the child's best interests in mind. If there is resentment between parents, or if they have different opinions about how their children should be raised, this may be extremely difficult. Parents usually want what's best for their children, so it makes sense to work with Thurston County child custody lawyers with family law experience, and who can offer reliable legal counsel.

Our Seattle Custody Attorneys Will Help You Develop A Fair And Balanced Parenting Plan

A parenting plan is a legal document created by you and your ex-spouse that outlines parental responsibilities, addressing issues like custody, decision making for the child, child support requirements, and how disputes are to be resolved.

Developing the details of this plan is not always easy, but it's an essential part of divorce negotiations. To achieve success, maintaining open communication with your ex-spouse is vital, but if negotiations stall our Washington child custody lawyers will help you maintain focus on resolving the document's terms.

The counsel provided by our Seattle child custody attorneys will be based on the goals you outline at the start of the process. Protecting your children's welfare is priority-one, so we maintain focus on your goals as we seek resolution to every detail.

There is never one clear-cut path toward resolution, so sometimes custody negotiations can become contentious. Our Seattle child custody attorneys urge clients to keep emotions from reaching the boiling point by maintaining focus on the needs of the children. If common ground proves impossible, a judge will ultimately make decisions that will affect the lives of your children. Our Seattle child custody lawyers are willing to take your case to court if your ex-spouse proves entirely unreasonable, and an agreement becomes impossible.
