Non-Parental Custody

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.

Back to School…But Where?

Sometimes a parent moves during the summer without thinking of the law, and other times a parent may move, or seek to move, to deliberately put distance between the children and the other parent. It is one of the possible byproducts of divorce and shared-custody that one parent wants to move with the children.  It is also possible that your children have moved to a new school district, or even out of state, without your consent. 

For many reasons, innocent or calculated, in our area, and throughout the State of Washington, a new school year can bring about a dramatic change that might require a legal response. 

The presumption that a child can be moved just because he or she is in the primary care of one of the parents can be rebutted by evidence presented on a variety of different statutory factors that a Washington family court must show it has considered.  This is very important information with which to be armed as to choose whether to accept or oppose a relocation of your children.

Do not let your children be moved away from you if you do not want to agree. Spokane divorce attorney Craig Mason has fought relocation issues for committed parents for many, many years.  He will fight for your child custody and visitation rights.  Please take a minute today and make an appointment to visit with Craig and his staff at the office located at West 1707 Broadway.  Call (509) 443-3681.
