Your residential time is defined by the parenting plan. Unless the parenting plan says that she can pick your daughter up during your time because your daughter says she wants her to, then she shouldn't be doing this. You should both be following the parenting plan as best you can.

I don't see a question here, but you should look at the end date on your order of child support to see whether it ends when your child turned 18 or when your child graduates from high school.

Q: trying to relocate with my child from Washington state to Oregon, does the lawyer have to be licensed in both states?
