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.
