Don’t Be in Such a Hurry!

Everyone seems to be in a hurry to settle a property claim after being in an accident.  Insurance companies are more than happy to do so.  Vital evidence is lost forever when this happens.  Once you accept payment the story ends and only one party is completely satisfied...guess who that is?  You’re right…the insurance company!

The insurance companies are in even more of a rush to settle your injury claim.  They "make light" of your injuries, especially "soft tissue" injuries, as if ligaments and tendons are optional!
Many injuries will not appear for months after a collision, especially if you had one injury distracting you, and as it heals up the more significant, long-term, injury will be more noticeable.

The general public would not know any better, and so generally, they accept the first offer thinking that is the only one they will ever receive.  Nothing could be further from the truth!  By hiring aggressive representation of your own you find out otherwise.

To protect yourself, you should consult Spokane property claim car accident attorney, Craig Mason.  Attorney Mason has been protecting Spokane area residents from making hasty decisions for decades and he may help you as well.  Give him a call and schedule a meeting at his office by calling (509) 443-3681.

The Proper Focus for Court on Initial Custody Hearings.

In family law court, a bad thing is that there is a lot of perjury.  Many parents want to "win" so badly that they lie under oath to try to achieve it.  A good thing is that such a lie might be the first, second, or third time that parent has told a lie to a judge or commissioner, but it is the 1000th time that the judicial officer has heard a similar lie.  And so it is harder to get away with lying than the dishonest person thinks.

However, "truth" does not exist in court, only "evidence" exists in court.  Your facts for your argument -- indeed, your "life," as it applies to your case -- is boiled down into a thin file of written documents that will be the basis for decision.  Remember, your "life," as the judge sees it, is just the file.  And so preparing your facts is what is important, and what you want are the facts to show your parenting history, your bond with your children, and your financial situation.
"Bashing" the other parent is largely useless, short of the other parent being a child-abusing heroin addict. (And it hurts you to falsely allege such a thing.)  Instead, you must present carefully supported facts that show that you have spent your life serving the best interests of your children, and that you will continue to do so. 

Attorney Mason is very experienced in helping you present what actually matters to the court decisions.  Do not get misled by animosity or attorneys who inflame it.  Keep your focus on the best interests of the children.  Call Spokane family lawyer Craig Mason for a consultation today at (509) 443-3681.

Objection to Relocation.

The law of relocation is evolving in Washington State.  For over two decades, the law has assumed that once a parenting plan has originally determined “primary placement” (“custody”), then that parent with primary placement may move with the children unless the other parent can “rebut” the presumption in favor of relocation after a trial on ten statutory factors involving the relationships, education, and well-being of the child.

A parenting plan is determined by the best interests of the child, but a relocation trial must raise the concerns about the move to a higher standard to “rebut” that presumption that the parent with the most time with the child (primary parent) may move with the child.

However, these days may parents have a 50/50 parenting plan, and so most trial courts had a “relocation trial” on the 10 factors, without a presumption.  But, a recent court of appeals case said that as neither parent has the presumption in a 50/50 plan, the relocation trial must follow the rules of a normal modification (which requires a threshold finding of “adequate cause” before a modification can proceed).  This change is working its way through the system.

In other words, relocations have always been legally technical, but now, more than ever, you will want Attorney Craig Mason to lead you through this evolving legal thicket, whether you are seeking to relocate, or seeking to stop a relocation of your children.

In Eastern Washington, Craig Mason is a well-known divorce attorney who will guide you through the process of objecting to relocation.  This has an impact on the rest of your life and your kids.  Call Attorney Craig Mason today at (509) 443-3681.
