Keeping the child's interests in mind with child custody

When a couple in Spokane decides to end their relationship, it's often not as simple as just parting ways and moving on with their lives. This is especially true when there are children in the relationship. In most cases, parents will want to do what is in the best interests of the child. That, however, doesn't always coincide with what the parents want. Often, there are ancillary issues that arise when it comes to child custody and these can be difficult to navigate.

How can mediation be used to solve a child custody dispute?

Few things are as difficult for parents as a child custody dispute. Some of the most serious such disputes involve one parent seeking sole custody of the child, but even a disagreement over the fine points of a parenting plan. The state of Washington has a set of rules in place to resolve these disputes while keeping the best interests of the child in mind. Many of these disputes can be resolved out of court through mediation.

In some situations, the parental rights are called into question due to issues of safety and competence. In others, technicalities muddy the waters between parents and it is either a matter of the court deciding what will happen in the child custody dispute or the parents can try to find common ground for the child's own good.
