I practice Family Law in Fresno and can tell you that an attorney cannot bring back a marriage that is already dissolved. Read banner (Fresno's report on cases) and see if there is a judgment for your first marriage. What might have happened is you matter was bifurcated (property dispute split from divorce) which means there is still property issues but the divorce has become final.
If your first marriage is not dissolved then your second marriage is voidable and you would have to take steps...
I am assuming you are asking for help in how to regain custody or at least more visitation with your children. If the current court order is from California you can file a Motion or an OSC to modify custody/visitation. This would be filed in the county where the order was issued. If the orders are out of Washington you will have to file a motion in Washington to either modify custody/visitation or to change venue.
If the children have been residing in Washington and the order is out of...
You had the chance to disqualify the judge with a 170.6 action and it does not sound like you chose to utilize it. The second consideration is the amount of time that has passed (8 years) and the third consideration is that it does not sound like he represented your ex in your case.
I personally don't see a conflict of interest.
As my colleague stated a 3-day notice to quit does not expire unless the landlord accepts rent payment from you. Remember that you may still be responsible for the rent that is accruing on a daily basis.
There are several things the landlord did wrong. They can not arbitrarily enter your apartment without notice. The preliminary inspection was not done correctly for the reasons my colleague has pointed out previously. Preliminary inspections are covered by code so there is no excuse for them not to follow the rules.
Too many times landlords will see what they can get away with and to be honest most people don't challenge them. You need to stand up for your rights.
You should respond with your current expenses, which can always be amended. With the filing you can also attach a declaration that your expenses will be going up in the near future. Like my colleague who responded before me, is this for spousal support or child support (assuming you have children with your soon to be ex). Your future expenses are speculative so again use your current expenses.
You can use small claims as long as the value you are seeking is not over $7500.
Understand that just because you file a small claims action does not guarantee that you will recover the furniture. The judge could find that the furniture was a gift and not return it. He could also decide to award you ex the furniture and have him pay you the value of it.
Your question is somewhat confusing but if I am understanding you the mother lives in Tenn.. and the kids are living here with Grandparents. I am assuming the current order gives you the children on the weekends. To change that you will need to file an RFO with proof that the mother is not taking care of the children herself. As my colleague stated your rights are superior to the grandparents. Absent any order giving them custody the children should be with you if the mother does not want to...
Since the property did not transfer until October 19th (the 9/11 sale was stayed therefore the property did not transfer).
What was the basis of the UD action? Did you fail to pay rent? You will be responsible for rent until October 19th.
I agree with Mr. Conviser you need to file an RFO for Vexatious Litigant. The courts will recognize what is going on and may offer you some relief. I am an attorney in Fresno if you would like to discuss this matter.
