Relocation Attorneys in Spokane

Proudly Advising Washington Families About Their Legal Rights

When one or both of the separate parents of a minor child decide to relocate their primary residence, the legal implications can be complicated to navigate. This is especially true if there are sophisticated court orders regarding parenting plans and visitation arrangements.

To make sure relocation does not negatively impact your parental rights, you should consult an experienced relocation attorney in Spokane. At Twyford Law Offices, our legal team has more than three decades of legal experience advocating for the rights of Spokane residents regarding legal issues arising out of the decision to relocate.

To learn more about your legal rights and how to protect them for purposes of relocating, call us at (509) 204-9993 today.

How Relocation Impacts Your Rights

Under Washington law, divorced parents of a minor child are typically subject to court orders regarding the custody of a minor child, parenting plans, and visitation arrangements. When determining such issues, a Washington court must have evaluated factors affecting the minor child’s best interests, and crafted a custody or visitation arrangement as a result. Relocation can result in a material change of circumstances that could justify modifying the terms of an existing custody or visitation arrangement.

A parent has the right to object to the other parent’s plan to relocate. To successfully object to a parental relocation, a party must prove that the detrimental consequences of moving outweigh the benefits.

A legal analysis regarding parental relocations involves an assessment of the following factors:

  • The impact on family relations
  • Good faith reasons and objections
  • The age and developmental needs of the children
  • Questions regarding the quality of life
  • Alternatives to relocation
  • The financial impact of relocating

To help protect your existing rights, our legal team can help you with the following issues when it comes to relocation:

  • Complying with notice requirements for relocating
  • Modifying family support orders
  • Modifying custody and visitation orders
  • Developing and negotiating new custody or parenting plans
  • Out-of-state relocations and jurisdictional issues under the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act
