Child Custody Lawyer in Tacoma

Custodial Parent Laws in Washington State

Child custody is one of the most important and emotionally polarizing issues in any divorce. Whether you are facing a divorce, modification, relocation, or other family law matter involving child custody, we may be able to represent you.
