Washington State Parenting Plan

What is a parenting plan?

A parenting plan is a legal document, which outlines parenting details for minor children. parenting plan will dictate in detail where the child will live, the time spent with each parent, how or which parent will make the major decisions and if there’s disagreements involving the child, how the two parents will decide.

Often they are used in divorce, legal separation, a change of custody, petition to decide parentage, and petition for non-parent custody and need to be approved by a judge or court commissioner. When creating a parenting plan keep in mind that the document is a plan to provide stability and security for your child during and after the separation.

Create a Parenting Plan That Prioritizes Your Child's Well-Being.

Common questions about Parenting Plans

If parents are unable to decide on the custody for their minor child, the judge will look at a couple of factors to determine what’s in the “best interest” of the child involved. Some of the factors considered by a judge are: 1) if any parent has alcohol or drug problems, 2) any previous reports of parental abuse or neglect, 3) the amount of time a parent would be with their child if they lived together, 4) any religious factors involved, and 5) each parent’s commitment in keeping the other parent involved in the child’s life. Anything that is being decided when it comes to parenting of the minor child should be in the child's best interests.

A family law firm that often settles out of court with "win, win" solutions for all involved. Resolve the matter instead of fighting in court where only the lawyers win.

First of all I would like to thank to Justin for his great work! My case was not easy (don’t want to use the word ugly), but thanks to Justin and his team I manage to win the case and being able to be with my child once again which was the goal from the beginning. The process of the divorce took more than a year and he and his team were with me the whole time. Very patient, persistent and knowledgeable. I will always recommend his service. Good luck to everyone out there.
