What is the rcw defining an unfit parent in Washington state
Asked Feb 18, 2010, 03:05 PM
We have a family law dissolution case in clark county. The Judge appointed a GAL 6 months ago. We filed a grievance against her because she has not followed the rules governing the GAL. She has not made a home visit with the father ,and now wants to tell the court he is unfit. Because he does not call her even though the rules state she is to go through his attorney to arrange contact. What defines unfit? What is the RCW regatding this definition. The mother is unfit. How much power does she have and can the judge take her recommendation with no grounds other than not calling the GAL (which has nothing to do with how he treats his children)?
