    There is a process where you can keep your address private if you have been a victim of domestic violence. You should speak to a family law attorney and share the specific facts of your case.

    Paris’s Answer

    There are many factors involved in alimony. What is the length of your marriage? What was your work history prior to unemployment? What is the reason for your unemployment? Alimony is often viewed as temporary assistance for a spouse in order for the spouse to become self-sufficient and awarded if the other party has sufficient financial resources and the marriage is of long enough duration. You should consult with an experienced family law attorney.

  • Can I give my rights over to my current wife and not my ex

    I want to join the usmc but in order I'd have to give up my rights to my children.

    Paris’s Answer

    It would be important to know more information. Is there a custody order and who has primary physical custody? It is common in the military that an unmarried first term enlistee can not have custody of children, however you are married - although not to the mother of the children. You should clarify what is being asked of you. The children's mother has custody rights to the children if you do not have custody. If you do have custody and want to transfer it, the mother automatically has the custody rights though may agree to have your current wife exercise those rights.

    Paris’s Answer

    You should consult with an attorney. If you had a written and signed agreement, it is enforceable in court. However if he is not paying the support, it sounds as though you may benefit from a child support order issued by a court which can be enforced through a child support enforcement agency.

    Paris’s Answer

    It sounds like you need a custody and parenting time order if you do not already have one. Usually such an action is filed where the court has jurisdiction over the child, which is typically where the child lives. It sounds like that would be Washington State.

    Paris’s Answer

    Once your daughter moves to Japan, then Japan will have jurisdiction over the matter. International family cases can be very costly and complex including some possible language barriers. You will have more ability here to come to a satisfactory resolution with regards to your daughter.

  • How do I reopen a case? What forms would I need? Or it it just the forms for what I am trying to do now with the case?

    I have sole legal custody of our child. I would like to try to have his last name changed to mine ( the father), as well as try to adjust the visitation schedule with his mother. Our case is currently closed.

    Paris’s Answer

    You could request a modification with regards to the visitation schedule if circumstances have changed since the order was issued. You should consult with an experienced family law attorney for an assessment of your probability of success based on the facts of your case.

  • Child support.. continue to pay or wait

    My husband as being paying child support via cash for the past 3 years. The mother refuses to allow him to claim the child on taxes, so he is filing to have the support court ordered. Should he continue to pay until he goes to court?

    Paris’s Answer

    It is unclear from the question whether the support is currently under a court order. If it is, then he definitely should not stop paying it. It is common for parties to alternate the tax exemption, however there is paperwork required by the IRS to do so. He should pay in such a way as to have a record of the payment. If he pays in cash, then he should receive a receipt.

    Paris’s Answer

    Unfortunately, you may not be able to proceed with the case without impact on his employment.. If you proceed as a witness on the domestic violence case, there is no way no ensure that it will not have an impact on his employment. In part, if he is convicted it may depend on whether it is a felony or misdemeanor, whether he goes to jail, and what type of job he has.
