  1. Washington law provides that a child may be integrated into the non-custodial parent's home which may provide the basis for a parenting plan modification, especially if it is with the custodial parent's consent. Ideally, you want to establish a pattern for the maximum length of time possible before initiating a formal Parenting Plan Modification in the county where you and the child reside.
