Jurisdiction over the children
[ ] Does not apply. My spouse and I have no children together who are still dependent.
[ ] The court can approve a Parenting Plan for the children my spouse and I have
together because (check all that apply; if a box applies to all of the children, you may
write “the children” instead of listing names):
[ ] Exclusive, continuing jurisdiction – A Washington court has already made a
custody order or parenting plan for the children, and the court still has authority to
make other orders for (children’s names):
.
[ ] Home state jurisdiction – Washington is the children’s home state because
(check all that apply):
[ ] (Children’s names):
lived
in Washington with a parent or someone acting as a parent for at least the
6 months just before this case was filed, or if the children are less than 6
months old, they have lived in Washington with a parent or someone acting
as a parent since birth.

[ ] There were times the children were not in Washington in the 6 months
just before this case was filed (or since birth if they are less than 6
months old), but those were temporary absences.
[ ] (Children’s names):
do not
live in Washington right now, but Washington was the children’s home state
sometime in the 6 months just before this case was filed, and a parent or
someone acting as a parent of the children still lives in Washington.
[ ] (Children’s names):
do not have
another home state.
[ ] No home state or home state declined – No court of any other state (or tribe)
has the jurisdiction to make decisions for (children’s names):
, or a court in the children’s home
state (or tribe) decided it is better to have this case in Washington and:
The children and a parent or someone acting as a parent have ties to
Washington beyond just living here; and
There is a lot of information (substantial evidence) about the children’s care,
protection, education and relationships in this state.
[ ] Other state declined – The courts in other states (or tribes) that might be (children’s
’s home state
names):
have refused to take this case because it is better to have this case in Washington.
[ ] Temporary emergency jurisdiction – The court can make decisions for
(children’s names):
because the
children are in this state now and were abandoned here or need emergency
protection because the children (or the children’s parent, brother or sister) were
abused or threatened with abuse. (Check one):
[ ] A custody case involving the children was filed in the children’s home state
(name of state or tribe):
. Washington
should take temporary emergency jurisdiction over the children until the
Petitioner can get a court order from the children’s home state (or tribe).
[ ] There is no valid custody order or open custody case in the children’s
home state (name of state or tribe):
. If no case is
filed in the children’s home state (or tribe) by the time the children have
been in Washington for 6 months, (date):
, Washington
should have final jurisdiction over the children.
[ ] Other reason (specify):
[ ] The court cannot approve a Parenting Plan because the court does not have
jurisdiction over the children.
8.
Parenting Plan
[ ] My spouse and I have no children together who are under 18 years old.
[ ] I ask the court to order a Parenting Plan for the children my spouse and I have together.
I will file and serve my proposed Parenting Plan (form FL All Family 140) (check one):
[ ] at the same time as this Petition.
[ ] later.
