Olympia Family Law Attorneys Handling Matters Involving Washington Children
Nothing is as important in life as one’s children. This is why most parents hope that their child will not have to live in separate homes. Unfortunately, that is not always possible. When you and your co-parent realize that you will not be able live in the same home together, you will have many important decisions to make about where the child should primarily live, when the child should spend time with each parent, and who can make decisions affecting the child. If the parents don’t agree on these issues, then it is best to get the Court involved as soon as possible. Retaining an experienced attorney is an important step towards dealing with these matters. An attorney can help you to negotiate an agreement with your co-parent and can file the appropriate papers with the Court if no agreement is reached. Our Olympia child custody lawyers can help with such matters. Contact us today to schedule an initial consultation.
Olympia lawyers handling cases involving custody, support, and other issues
There are many situations in which Washington’s Family Courts become involved in the lives of children. While no two situations are the same, virtually any case is likely to place stress upon a parent. The types of legal issues which can involve a parent’s son or daughter include:
- Initial parenting plans (“Child custody”)
- Modification of parenting plans
- Moving with a child (in state or out of state)
- Parental abductions
- Parental termination
- Child support
- Unpaid child support
The most important thing for a parent to realize, in any of these matters, is that the Judge’s concern is to ensure that the child’s best interests are protected. If you believe that your child’s interests are at risk, then it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible.
