    Possibly. You would need to employ an attorney and an ad litem who recommends termination.

    You will have to hire a private attorney to file for the modification. You should do so quickly because the modification dates back to date of filing.

    Jacqueline’s Answer

    If you do not have any court orders preventing you from removing property then you can do so. But make sure you keep an accounting and photos of what you take. Opposing sides often accuse you of destroying or selling property.

    You can agree otherwise but it needs to be put into an order and signed by the judge. Then submit it to AG.

  • Does Washington state require both parties to agree to allow one spouse to have jurisdiction in Washington?

    My estranged husband of 15 yrs moved to Washington state on June of 2012. I live in Texas. He recently asked me if he may have jurisdiction in Washington state. I was a bit surprised at his request, since he very seldom offered me a choice on any ...

    Jacqueline’s Answer

    I agree with the other attorney. In a divorce, rarely does one do something to benefit the other person. You should speak to an attorney in both states to find out your rights. Divorce is proper in the state in which the divorce is filed first. Race to the courthouse.

    Jacqueline’s Answer

    It cannot get any lower unless he has other kids to support. The AG is free. You should do it. They will go after the arrears for you.

    Jacqueline’s Answer

    You haven't given enough facts to determine the strength of your case. Custody is based on what is in the child's best interest. Courts look at various things like stability, work schedules, relationship between parent and child and who provides better for the emotional and physical needs of the child, etc... an attorney can go over your specific facts more thoroughly.

    Jacqueline’s Answer

    It is not true. It does not matter who files first when it comes to attorneys fees. Usually each pays own fees or it comes out of community property.
