Your attorney is wrong. You should take this matter to Court immediately. That is the only way the mother will negotiate in good faith - with a looming court date.

Your attorney holds himself out as a mediator?

Some important logistical questions, so we can help you figure out your next move. Are your attorney's in Washington or California? Eastern or western Washington? Are you moving to Northern or southern California? What is the distance between you going to be once you move?

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.
