The children's mother has custody right now but we are still going through custody. The case is in WA but I am out of state. There is allegations of drug abuse on her and her boyfriends part as well as domestic violence charges on her boyfriends part, also reports of abuse against the children. A GAD stated she felt they were not in a safe environment with their mother and they should move with me. If I go to WA to file this will she have a chance to respond before the final court date? Also is this grounds for a judge granting me the custody order? I am scared for my kids, but even more so if I am not granted the emergency custody.
