You're in a bit of an odd spot, jurisdictionally speaking. Western Washington isn't a bad place to get a parenting plan, but you may do better in California. Have you talked to your attorney about what it would take to move jurisdiction? Generally the child would have to live there for six months, but with you both living there, I wonder if you can just agree to move it. I don't know that you can, but it's worth finding out.
She probably assumes it's all the same, so if you can, and she'd agree, it's something to consider.
This is something I've been considering, I've heard my county tends to lean towards the mother. I would absolutely love to get this case down to California the more I think about it. I understand she needs to agree so does that mean we both have to get new attorneys? I'm guessing so, but I'm very new to the court system and how it works. If that's the case I don't think she'd agree to have it moved, I believe she is comfortable with who she has.
What is normally the process on changing the jurisdiction? Does It just require all the case paperwork to be transferred to the county court in the county I'm living in? Is this something I should jump on tomorrow or can I make It happen when I get down there? It has been 4 months since they've moved, So there's two months until the official jurisdictional change if we don't come to an agreement.
