 Findings & Conclusions
2.
Jurisdiction
(RCW 26.27.201–.221, .231, .261, .271)
[ ] The court cannot decide this case for the children because the court does not have
jurisdiction over the children.
[ ] The court can decide this case for the children because (check all that apply; if a box
applies to all of the children, you may write “the children” instead of listing names) :
[ ] Washington order/exclusive, continuing jurisdiction – The non-parent custody
order was made by a Washington state court, and the court still has authority to
make other orders for (children’s names):
.
[ ] Other state’s order – The non-parent custody order was not made by a
Washington state court AND (check one):
[ ] A court in the state (or tribe) that made the non-parent custody order has
made another order saying that it no longer has jurisdiction or that it is
better to have this case decided in Washington;
[ ] No child, parent or person acting as a parent lives in the state (or tribal
reservation) that made the order anymore;
AND (check one):
[ ] 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 were
less than 6 months old when the case was filed, they had 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 were 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 has
the jurisdiction to make decisions for (children’s names):
,
or a court in the children’s home state 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 (significant connection); and

There is a lot of information (substantial evidence) about the children’s
care, protection, education, and relationships in this state.
[ ] Other reason (specify):
3.
Request to terminate non-parent custody order
[ ] Does not apply. No one requested termination.
[ ] Denied – The court denies the request for termination because (check all that apply):
[ ] there has been no substantial change to the situation of a parent, child, or non-
parent custodian.
[ ] the reasons (factual basis) for the requested termination do not qualify under
the law.
[ ] other reasons (specify):
[ ] Approved – The court approves terminating the non-parent custody order because
there has been a substantial change in the situation of a parent, child, or non-parent
custodian.
(Describe how the situation has changed, or describe a situation that the court did
not know about when it made its order):
Check reason/s for termination:
[ ] The parents and the non-parent custodian agree to the termination.
[ ] The children are living in a parent’s home with the non-parent custodian’s permission.
[ ] The children’s current living situation is harmful to their physical, mental, or
emotional health. It would be better for the children to change the order.
[ ] The non-parent custodian has not followed the court’s order. A court found him/her
in contempt for disobeying the residential schedule more than once in three years, or
guilty of custodial interference in the first or second degree. (RCW 9A.40.060 or
9A.40.070)
[ ] Transition (check one):
[ ] No transition period is necessary.
[ ] A transition period is in the child’s best interest because:

Request to change non-parent custody order (
RCW 26.09.260(5), (7), and (9))
[ ] Does not apply. The order is being terminated.
[ ] Denied – The court denies the request for a change because (check all that apply):
[ ] the situation of a parent, child, or non-parent custodian has not changed
substantially.
[ ] the reasons (factual basis) for the requested change do not qualify under the
law.
[ ] the parent requesting more time is limited because of problems listed in the
current orders. That parent has not shown substantial change in the problems
that caused the limitations.
[ ] the parent requesting more time has not fully completed all evaluations,
treatment, or classes required by the current orders.
[ ] other reasons (specify):
[ ] Approved – The court approves a change to the non-parent custody orders. The
court signed the new Residential Schedule or Non-Parent Custody Order filed
separately today or on (date):
.
The change is approved because there has been a substantial change in the
situation of a parent, child, or non-parent custodian.
(Describe how the situation has changed, or describe a situation that the court did
not know about when it made its order):
Check reason/s for this change:
[ ] The current orders are difficult to follow because a parent has moved.
[ ] The current orders are difficult to follow because one parent’s work schedule
changed and the change was not by his/her choice.

[ ] This change is needed because the current orders do not give the children a
reasonable amount of time with one parent. It is in the children’s best interest to
have increased time with that parent.
Are there any limitations on the parent whose time is being increased?
[ ] No. The current orders do not limit that parent’s time with the children
because of abandonment, abuse, domestic violence, sex offense, or other
serious problems.
[ ] Yes. That parent’s time with the children is limited because of problems
listed in the current orders. That parent’s situation has changed substantially.
(Describe how the parent’s problems that caused the limitations in the
current orders have changed.)
Has the parent whose time would be increased completed any required
evaluations, treatment, or classes?
[ ] Does not apply. The current orders do not require that parent to complete
any evaluations, treatment, or classes.
[ ] Yes. That parent has completed all court-ordered evaluations, treatment, or
classes required by the current orders.
List completed evaluations, treatment, or classes here:
5.
Other Changes
[ ] Does not apply.
[ ] Because of a substantial change in a parent or child’s situation, the court approves
changes to the following parts of the order (check all that apply):
[ ] dispute resolution
[ ] decision-making
[ ] transportation arrangements
[ ] other (specify):
6.
Child Support
[ ] Does not apply. No one asked to change child support.
[ ] Denied – The request to change child support is denied because:
[ ] the request to terminate or change the non-parent custody order is denied.
