A Parenting Plan Agreeable to Both Parties.

What is the worst part of the divorce process?  Almost everyone would agree that it is making plans for the proper parenting of your minor children.  They are the innocents in this conflict and their needs should always be paramount.  If one parent or another fights for custody just because they think that they deserve to “win,” the losers will be the kids.

Here are some rules to live by when deciding on joint custody -

1.  It’s not all about you.  Be an adult and do what is best for the children.
2. Assess, honestly, your own schedule and the commitments that you have in your daily life, and do not try to take more time with the children in court orders than you actually have time to give them.
3.  Just because you don’t want to be with your spouse anymore doesn’t make him or her a bad parent.
4.  Keep the lines of communication open, and remember that your spouse is as stressed as you are.  Give each other room to make some mistakes without responding with aggression.
5.  Don’t speak poorly about your ex…to anyone in this cyber age...and never speak poorly of your former spouse in front of the children.

No one wants the boys and girls that you have been raising together to have any more angst than is inevitable, despite your best efforts.  For the proper representation in all matters of family law contact Craig Mason.  Attorney Mason is a strong, experienced child custody attorney in Spokane, WA.  Please call him for a consultation at his office at (509) 443-3681.

You vs. The Insurance Company.

So you are unfortunately the victim of an auto accident that was not your fault.  Now you have to go to battle with Goliath…the insurance companies of North America.  Where do you think they get all of that money for those TV commercials?  First of all, make sure that you call YOUR insurance agent as soon as you can.  It is important to understand exactly what your insurance covers. 

Whenever you talk to an insurance agent take careful notes, even record the conversations if possible.  Check to see if you have coverage with more than one insurance provider through your homeowner’s policy or from signing up for a credit card.  Keep receipts and careful records of any expenses that you incur from pursuing your rightful claim.

When dealing with the big boys with the deep pockets it is important to have a tenacious representative on your side.  That man is Spokane, WA car accident and family law attorney Craig Mason.  He will aggressively fight for get everything that you are entitled to.  Call him today to arrange for a free consultation at his Spokane office at (509) 443-3681.
