Pursuant to Washington law, every husband and wife who get divorced and have children must have a parenting plan that defines their custody and visitation rights. Parents who are getting divorced may reach a mutual agreement on a parenting plan and submit it for court approval, or they may take their case to trial and allow a judge to issue a parenting plan after a trial is concluded.
Even couples who are not divorced but who receive a legal separation with children must agree to a parenting plan or argue their case before a judge, who will then issue a parenting plan.
Once a parenting plan is ordered by a court, either parent subject to the parenting plan may seek a parenting plan modification subject to certain requirements set out by Washington law. At the law office of Tim Edwards & Associates, P.S., we represent clients throughout Pierce County and King County in parenting plan modification proceedings.
