Marriage of Swaka, ____ P.3d ____, 2014 WL 657934 (Feb. 20, 2014).

Case Conclusion Date: 02.20.2014

Practice Area: Family

Outcome: The Court of Appeals upheld our requested restrictions against the father and our use of Skype for trial testimony, setting new legal precedent for Washington State.

Description: Highly contested custody case involving the primary parent/client's relocation to Spain and the opposing party's attempt to fight the relocation and increase his visitation with the children. The court of appeals upheld a trial court ruling that allowed us to have all our witnesses testify via Skype, so the client didn't have to return from Spain for her relocation trial. Opposing counsel appealed, Skype testimony was upheld.
