Child Custody

Resolving Child Custody Concerns

Nothing is more important to parents than their children. If you are involved in a divorce or other family law matter that may impact your parental rights, it is critical that you retain an experienced and knowledgeable family law attorney.

I am Mark D. Hodgson, a Spokane child custody attorney committed to protecting the rights of parents in divorce and family law cases. I provide my clients with candid advice and always stress the importance of putting the best needs of children first. I represent clients in a wide range of custody matters and related family law matters, including:

  • Contested and uncontested divorce
  • Drafting parenting plans and obtaining parenting plan modifications
  • Addressing and resolving parental relocation issues
  • Establishing paternity
  • Situations involving domestic violence (restraining orders and protective orders)

Advocating For You During Disputes

I understand that parents often have legitimate disagreements about what is best for their children. In many cases, negotiation, mediation and a strong working knowledge of how courts treat such issues can help mothers and fathers reach an agreement about disputed issues.

When disputes are not resolved by agreement, I have the experience, commitment and firm resolve to advocate vigorously on my clients’ behalf in the courtroom. I understand that your ability to care for your children and preserve a strong relationship with your children is critical. You can rely on me for candid advice, compassion and vigorous advocacy.

Learn More About Parenting Plans

Washington requires parenting plans to clearly indicate the home in which a child shall reside throughout the year, as well as the parties’ agreement for special occasions such as birthdays, holidays and vacations.

If the parties cannot agree, then the court will impose a parenting plan and custody arrangement that is in the best interests of the child.
