If I Want To Move Out During A Divorce, Will It Hurt My Chances For Custody If I Leave My Kids With My Spouse?

Washington State child custody decisions very much depend on the specific details of your own case; however, historically it may hurt your chances for child custody if you leave the marital home without your children before or during the divorce process. Leaving your home without your children sends a message about who should primarily care for the children – and granting you custody after you have left may be seen as a larger disruption to the children’s lives. To ensure that you are treated fairly when it comes to child custody, talk to a Seattle family law attorney about your situation before making any big moves.
