What’s the difference between child visitation and a parenting plan?
A parenting plan outlines each parent's visitation rights, and it's generally in a child's best interests to have regular and consistent parenting time with both parents to build a loving relationship with each parent. Child visitation refers to the noncustodial parent's scheduled time with the child, which is usually established in the parenting plan.
Do grandparents have visitation rights in Spokane, WA?
In Spokane, WA, grandparents don't have an inherent right to visitation. However, a court may consider awarding visitation rights to grandparents if it's in the best interests of the child based on various factors considered. The court will consider factors such as the grandparent's relationship to the child's parents, the strength of the bond between the grandparent and child, and any objections raised by the parents.
At what age can a child refuse visitation in Washington State?
In Washington State, there's no specific age at which a child can refuse visitation with a non-custodial parent. However, the court can enforce a visitation order if a parent prevents visits or holds them in contempt. The court will consider the circumstances of each family to determine if refusing visitation is acceptable.
