What if both parents want custody of their children after a divorce?
If two parents in Washington State both want custody of their children, a WA judge will decide on a parenting plan that works in the best interests of the child or children. In most cases, this involves a parenting plan in which both parents have some visitation rights. In cases where one parent struggles with addiction or has a history of domestic violence, visitation may be limited or disallowed. Some Washington State couples find that mediation can help them resolve child custody issues while avoiding expensive and contentious legal battles and minimizing the emotional impact on their children.
