Experienced Seattle
Custody and Support Lawyers

Going through divorce and separation can be extremely stressful and upsetting. For couples with children, working through custody and support details can be particularly contentious. While it’s inevitable that the status quo for a child will alter, Washington state’s priority is to preserve as much stability for a child as possible, and ensure the best interests of the child are considered when creating the custody arrangement/parenting plan.

All families are unique, and there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to custody arrangements, but Hemmat Law’s experienced child custody lawyer will be able to help you understand the process and what your rights and responsibilities are.

Our highly experienced child custody lawyers can also advise on your child support responsibilities and offer guidance in instances of child support conflict. We understand that your children can be the centre of your world, and our child custody lawyers approach all cases with empathy and dedication to do what’s best for your child.
