Child Custody in Tacoma

Our Tacoma Custody Lawyers Can Help You with This Serious Issue

Child custody issues may be the most difficult part of a divorce, and it sometimes requires making difficult choices. Emotions run deep when negotiating child-related terms of a divorce with an ex-spouse, especially when one or both parties think they may lose daily contact with their children. Other difficult issues related to child custody include visitation rights, and the financial support of the child. All of these issues are addressed in a document called a parenting plan. Considering the stakes, you need to work with a lawyer whom you implicitly trust.

The Tacoma child custody lawyers at the Washington Family Law Group are ready to help you deal with these serious issues, and it all starts with a free consultation. The family court in Washington requires that you and your ex make custody decisions with your child's best interests in mind. This may not always be easy, especially if you disagree about the details of rearing your child. Responsible parents want their children to feel safe and secure, so it makes sense to work with Pierce County child custody lawyers who will help you make the best decisions possible, on their behalf.

Our Tacoma custody lawyers are ready to talk to you about custody issues, define a set of goals, and then determine how we can work together in an effort to achieve those goals. If you choose our Tacoma legal team to represent your legal interests, we will act as your trusted counselor when tough decisions need to be made. Our custody lawyers in Tacoma may not always tell you what you want to hear, but we will tell you what you need to hear because we want to help you make the best choices.

Your Pierce County Custody Lawyer will Help You Create a Parenting Plan

A parenting plan is a document that outlines all parental responsibilities after a divorce is finalized. Issues addressed in a parenting plan include child support, visitation, and custody. You and your ex will also be required to address how future disputes will be settled, and how certain decisions will be made on behalf of the children.

Working out the details of a parenting plan can quickly become contentious, so our Tacoma child custody attorneys urge you to maintain honest communication with your ex. If proceedings become emotionally charged, our Tacoma child custody attorneys will urge you to regain focus so that negotiations stay on track.

The honest counsel we provide is based on the goals that you defined when the process began, but we may also have to tell you that certain goals may be unrealistic. This is just one way that your Tacoma lawyer works with you to ensure that your children’s welfare is fully protected.

Resolving child custody issues in Tacoma sometimes requires creative litigation, because every divorce is unique. You may find it difficult at times to keep a cool head, especially if your ex makes claims that you believe aren’t true. If you just can’t find common ground with your ex and negotiations fail, a judge will make decisions regarding your child's future. We believe this is a result best avoided.

If your ex and their attorney act unreasonably and refuse to treat you fairly, our Tacoma child custody attorneys won't hesitate to take your case all the way to trial.
