WashingtonSharedParenting has recently added the Washington State Division of Child Support Policy Manual to the site for easy access to Non-Custodial Parents.  The manuals are a great way to understand the actions to be taken by DCS, and helps NCP's understand the limitations state employees should be operating under.

They are a great tool.  Once great example is their public disclosure rules.  Every NCP should contact DCS on a regular basis to get a copy of their Case Comments so they understand the status of their case, as many times Staff do things that NCP's are not aware of, and in some instances they either excede their authority as outlined in the policy manual, or ignore them.

Requesting copies of your case notes is just a good practice, and keeps you informed.

Washington Parenting Plan Example

Parenting plan!  Your going through a divorce and you hear that because you have kids, you can't get divorced until you have a parenting plan in place.  We know, it's very confusing.  So, what is this parenting plan.  Essentially, it's a plan that states what your children will do for every day of their life until they are 18 years old.  It states where they spend their birthdays, holidays, vacations, etc. with each parent.

It's important!  To go into the development of a parenting plan without understanding what it is can be disasterous.  And, to hire an attorney to develop it for you can be down right expensive.  So, we are gathering up parenting plan examples for you to download, read, modify if necessary, and use in your own circumstances.

If you use one of them, and then modify it for your own use, can you do us a favor and share it with us so we can help some other young family same some money from the lawyers and use it for the well being of their own family.  And, if we save you an hour of your attorney's time, we ask one other thing.  When you have the financial crisis created by divorce behind you, please make a small donation to the shared parenting organization of your choice - they are working hard to stop family abuse.

Washington Parenting Plan Sample - Simple but effective plan that handles joint custody very well.
