Protecting What Matters In Child Custody Issues

When parents get divorced or when unmarried parents split up, the most important legal issues they face concern their parental rights and the future of the children.

In Washington, custody orders and parenting plans (often referred to as visitation) determine a broad range of issues, including:

  • Where the child maintains primary residence
  • A schedule of residential time
  • Where the child spends holidays and other important events
  • How decision-making responsibilities are allocated

The manner in which these legal issues are handled will have a significant impact on the relationship you have with your child. At Chvatal Law, we understand how important it is to protect our clients' parental rights.
