Normally when people use the term “restraining order” they are seeking a court order for protection, to prevent contact that is harassing or abusive. This is a frequently misused term. A “restraining order” is one kind of court order, but there are in fact a number of different types of protection orders used to prevent contact.
Protection orders are put in place to prevent contact between two people. Contact could entail physical or personal interaction, phone or text contact, email or social media contact, or even communication through a third party. In many cases, protection orders also involve remaining a certain distance away from someone’s home, school, or place of employment.
Protection orders in the Evergreen State can be tricky. They must be written correctly and served properly. To achieve that, we suggest you contact Spokane family attorney Craig Mason. Craig and his team have written many protection orders in Washington State and will make sure that yours has every i dotted and each t crossed. Call him for an appointment in his Spokane office at (509) 443-3681.
If you live in the state of Washington, non-parental custody
may be sought if the parents of the children are unavailable (e.g., in jail) or
unfit (e.g., due to drug use).
So, what exactly is non-parental custody, or what is
sometimes called third-party custody?It
is a legal process by which you petition the court to have the children placed
in your care, by court order, where they remain until the parents come forward
to prove that they are again fit parents.
The parents may be granted visitation, supervised or simply
on limited time, while you are the custodian of the parents.Often, the parents will have to pay you child
support if you seek it. Of course, most troubled parents cannot pay child
support, and so the custodian of the children may not bother to seek it, but
that is a reasonable decision to make with the advice of counsel.
Non-parental petitions are a complex area of family law,
with may procedural hurdles, and pursuing non-parental custody requires the
services of an excellent Washington State family lawyer to sort it all out for
you.In Spokane that man is Craig Mason
representing Mason Law.Please give
Attorney Mason a call today to see how to navigate the issue of non-parental
custody by calling (509) 443-3681.
