In wa state if my wife was convicted of manslaughter and i was awarded custody while she was incarcerated do i still retain these rights

You do still retain the rights of the child unless the judge orders otherwise. The reason you have been awarded custody of the children is also taken into account and what might happen when she comes back. Consult a lawyer to explain the situation and be advised on the best course of action to take.

She would have to petition the court to change the custody order.
