An Attorney Who Puts His Clients' Needs First A Trusted Family Law Office in Spokane, WA
Incredibly knowledgeable and up-front. I had a quick consultation with him and was listened to and ultimately told that pursuing a case would cost a lot of money and probably not end the way I would hope. I had spent some time talking with lawyers, but none were as honest, kind, and seemingly knowledgeable as Mr Partovi. Would highly recommend.View on Google

How Washington State Determines Custody of a Child
Rather than using the terms like "child custody" and "visitation," the state of Washington refers to these arrangements as parenting plans. Two state statutes are essential for parenting plan agreements:
- Revised code of Washington 26.09.184 outlines the stipulations of permanent parenting plans, including the best interests of a child, residential provisions, decision-making authority, and options for dispute resolution. We'll go over permanent parenting plans in more detail below.
- Revised code of Washington 26.09.197 outlines how courts make temporary parenting plans. Taking the best interests of a child into account, the court weighs the child's relationship with each parent and what arrangement will cause the least disruption to a child's emotional stability.
Permanent Parenting Plans Custody and Visitation Arrangements
How to Determine Where Your Child Will Live
Permanent parenting plans detail which parent has physical custody of a child on certain days. This residential schedule includes birthdays, holidays, vacations, and other occasions. The parent who has their child more often is referred to as the custodial parent.
How Child Rearing Decisions Will Be Made
Permanent parenting plans also detail how child rearing decisions are made. One parent or both parents may have authority to make choices about their child's health care, education, religious upbringing, and other choices related to growth and development.
How Parental Disputes Will Be Resolved
Parenting plans outline resolution methods to avoid family court. Whether it's counseling, mediation, or arbitration, our law office will provide support. You will have a trusted attorney as your advocate, looking out for what is best for you and your child.

Types of Restraining Orders
Domestic Violence Order for ProtectionThis civil order from the court will inform your spouse that they cannot harm you again. A domestic violence order for protection can prevent the respondent from entering your home, grant you temporary custody of your children, and restrict visitation rights.
Restraining OrderA restraining order is typically filed as part of a divorce or family law case, and has a broader scope than the domestic violence order for protection. Your lawyer can go over other legal protections you may seek from the respondent.
No-Contact OrderA no-contact order does not last as long as a protection order, and it cannot make orders about child custody or visitation. These are not typically filed in family law cases. Instead, a no-contact order may be sought while a criminal case against the respondent is ongoing.
