    Because the statute of limitations has passed, and to answer your question, yes it has -- she can be barred from suing you to collect it in court, but she can file the suit - you would have to file an answer objecting and raise the statute of limitations defense. However, even if she doesn't file a suit aginast you, she can still attempt to collect it outside of court. You should send a cease and desist letter, asking her not to contact you any further with respect to this debt. Also, since...

    It might be possible to get free legal advice from Northwest Justice Project, -a non-profit Washington agency providing legal assistance for just this type of thing- to low income individuals. I am not sure if you meet their criteria, but at the least, they are a great source for information. As for the impending trial, make sure you adhere to deadlines set by the court for exchanging documentation/discovery and provide the court and the Defendant with copies of all your correspondence...

  3. My husband gave up his condo before we married. Will the lender be going after me if the debt left after the condo is forecloure

    You have nothing to worry about. The condo is pre-marital property, and as such you are not responsible for the debt. I assume you didn't guarantee the loan prior to your marriage? The lender will not come after you, unless they believe you have been married since prior to the loan being made. It should be a simple matter to clear up.

    She should consider filing for bankruptcy. Any money garnished within 90 days of filing can be exempted and returned to her. I give a free half hour in office consultation. Call me.

    I assume you received permission to relocate to Washington from the court in Texas. Typically, when the parent who has physical custody of the children moves to another state (with permission from the court), the dynamics of the current parenting plan will change. For example, it will no longer be practical for your spouse to exercise visitation if the order states he has every other weekend and every Wednesday evening. A modified order would typically give the parent in Texas more time in...

    Provided you meet the criteria set out in RCW 9.96.060(2)(e), and have had no additional criminal charges filed against you for five years after the date your case was finished(including payments of fines, fees, etc.), yes. An attorney can generally help you file the appropriate paperwork and get it done for you quickly and inexpensively.

  8. How do I reduce points/fine in my speeding ticket?

    You do not need to fly to AK to contest the ticket. Find a good attorney in Alaska who handles traffic offenses in the county you were ticketed in, pronto. You need to request a hearing before the date to do so expires. You can appear for the hearing by telephone. If you really do have an otherwise clean record, an attorney can possibly make a deal with the local prosecutor, possibly allowing you to plead responsible to a seatbelt violation/other non-moving violation instead of a speeding...

  9. When and for how long under Wa state divorce laws is spousal maintenance required? Health insurance?

    1 lawyer answer

    You have what the courts consider a long term marriage; given the other factors as you describe, (your age, work history, your physical health) you would likely be entitled to long term spousal maintenance. If you file for dissolution, it is likely the court will enter a temporary order that would require your husband to continue to pay all the bills as he has been (the mortgage, credit cards, cars, etc.) When your dissolution action is finalized, the ultimate goal would be to equalize your...

    Many municipal courts have RSP’s (relicensing support programs) where you can get on an acceptable payment plan that fits your budget. The City of Tukwila is a good example. You must request a hearing in writing (write to the clerk of the court) in front of the judge of the court where you received the ticket. At the hearing, ask the judge to put you on a payment plan and get proof before you leave court that you are on a payment plan. It is possible to get your license reinstated while on a...
