Custody in Washington: What to Know

Family Law Judges prefer to award joint legal and physical custody whenever possible. However, Judges have a great deal of discretion when issuing a custody Order. Some of the factors the court may consider include:

  • Each parent’s ability to provide for the child
  • The location of each parent’s residence
  • The child’s involvement in school, church, or community activities
  • The child’s relationship with each parent
  • The child’s stated preference, in some cases
  • Any history of domestic violence, substance abuse, or mental illness

To have a stronger chance of getting the results you hope for, you need a Family Law Attorney. Our child custody Lawyer is skilled in Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, Collaborative Law and, as necessary, Litigation (Contested Court Hearings and Trials).
