It’s becoming increasingly common for people to relocate, whether it’s to a new city or state, for a range of different reasons. This becomes a far more difficult process when there’s a child involved, especially when the child involved is under joint custody as the result of a divorce. Under Washington state law, if you are the custodial parent, you cannot simply pack and up and move. There’s a range of processes that you need to go through. We provide the family attorneys you need, whichever party you happen to be, so you can get a reasonable and fair outcome.

Help in a Difficult Process
When it comes to any relocation or custody case, it can be a difficult process to deal with. The outcome could seriously impact the relationship you have with your child, or children, and limit the amount of time that you get to spend with them, depending on which party you are. With us there to guide and help you through the entire process, we know that everything can be that little bit less stressful and easier to handle. You can be sure of getting a fair and reasonable result with our legal team there for you.
Something that you need to understand as part of this process, is that both you, and the opposing party, have legal obligations that you are required to meet. This can vary depending on the agreed upon parenting plan among others. The custodial parent simply cannot move away with the child, for example. By getting our legal team on board, you can be sure that both you, and the opposing party, are meeting all your legal obligations. A parenting plan is a binding court order, after all, so it’s important.

As with any laws, it can sometimes be hard to understand what they are exactly. That’s were our team of professional family law attorneys can help you. With our legal advice and help, we can help you to understand your rights under the current law, to ensure you get the result that you want. Anything less could have a range of serious consequences.
