This website is designed to provide information about the Mason County Friend of the Court office and to provide a brief summary of the family law process as related to Friend of the Court services. Family separation is a difficult process, particularly for children. A child feels a sense of security when parents take control and resolve difficult issues. At all times, parents are encouraged to use their problem-solving skills and to focus on the best interest of the child. The Court and the Friend of the Court encourage parents to act as parents, conducting themselves in a manner which protects the health and well being of the child. We hope you find this website helpful.
The provisions of this website are based on currently known statutory requirements. The laws regarding domestic relations are currently in a great state of change. Please check with this office or an attorney if you believe a new law has been enacted that is not addressed on this website.
