Children Matter Most

In a divorce, if the parents can cooperate, that is what is best for the children.

Unfortunately, sometimes some parents will use the children as a weapon to harm the other parent in a divorce.  That can mean bitter and heavily litigated divorces, including the use of false allegations of abuse to try to keep the children from the other parent.

Craig Mason is very experienced in combating these damaging divorce tactics, and then, when possible, after restoring normal visitation, and bringing conflict levels back down such that parents can again focus on being parents – just parents who do not live together.

If you face these problems, please contact family-law and divorce attorney Craig Mason.  Craig Mason has represented those involved in messy family issues in Spokane and in the State of Washington for decades.  He will be there for you.  Arrange a meeting at his Spokane office right away by calling (509) 443-3681.

Do You Need a Protection Order?

The courts in Spokane County issue an "automatic temporary restraining order" when a divorce is filed, and once it is served on the other party, that might be all you need (service on them) as it prevents changing the primary parent of the children, moving money beyond that needed for daily life, and orders the parties not to disturb the peace of the other.

If you think you need a stronger or more detailed protection order, then put together your facts, and let an attorney fit those facts to the legal options.

Please give me a call and we will review your options.  I am Spokane area family attorney Craig Mason.  I have advised my clients on the proper restraining orders to file for decades in the State of Washington.  Also, if you have been served with one of these please give me a call.  That number is  509-443-3681.  Let’s sit down at my office located at West 1707 Broadway in Spokane.

Hold on…That’s my Kid too.

It happens often.  A marriage breaks up and now the kid(s) will live primarily with one of the former spouses.  Now, what happens when that divorcee wants to move out of town to pursue other interests?  Well, obviously your child will be involved in that move as well and you may become estranged from your own child.

More often than not, it is fathers who face this situation. Did you know that three out of four mothers with custody move within four years of separation or divorce?  The reasons why don’t matter so much.  They vary widely, from employment, to being closer to family, to moving in or with a new lover.

Stop…that is my kid too!  You have the right to fight against relocation of your children.  If you have ceased civil communication with your ex, then it is time to seek the advice and counsel of Spokane area family lawyer Craig Mason.  Attorney Mason has been dealing with child custody cases in Eastern Washington for decades.  Call his office right away at (509) 443-3681.
