WASHINGTON PARENTING PLANS vs. PHYSICAL CHILD CUSTODY

WASHINGTON PARENTING PLANS vs. PHYSICAL CHILD CUSTODY

In Washington, the court uses the term "parenting" instead of "custody" and enters a parenting plan instead of a custody order in family law actions, in most cases. The parent having the most residential time with the child is typically designated the "primary parent". It is important to understand that the designation of one of the parents as "primary parent" doesn't diminish the role of the other parent in the child's life. Washington courts recognize the importance of having both parents involved in raising a child, no matter who the "primary parent" may be.

The parenting plan is designed to set forth the rights of both parents as to when they have the child living with them and who can make decisions on behalf of the child. The parenting plan contains many provisions which outline each parent's responsibilities towards the child, including provision on how to resolve issues relating to implementing the plan and what to do if the "primary parent" needs to relocate the child out of state or to another school district.

There are many issues which can come up in forming a parenting plan. Having Blazak Law on your side will help you to ensure you get the most favorable provisions in your parenting plan, provisions which help you and your child.
