When: 14-Sep-2017 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Where: Century Square Building, 1501 Fourth Avenue, Seattle WA 3rd floor Alki Conference Room


Attorneys who rely on the mandatory forms when drafting Parenting Plans risk setting up their clients for trouble down the road. Although the mandatory forms are sufficient in most cases for most situations, they do not consider many common and foreseeable situations that arise for parents after entry of a Parenting Plan. This CLE will walk you through how to customize a Parenting Plan that best suits your clients’ needs, including providing some suggested terminology which is not contained in the pattern forms. Topics covered will include drafting terms for passports, travel (domestic and international) dual national parents and children, decision-making language to consider for parents who cannot adequately communicate, and suggested alternative dispute resolution terms.
