If you fail to appear at a court hearing on any pending criminal charge, the court will issue a warrant for your arrest. That warrant will be renewed every 3-6 years for an indefinite period of time. If you choose to return to Washington State during the period that the warrant is outstanding you would be subject to arrest.See question

I got caught switching a tag from $7 to $3 at the goodwill and a law firm sent me a letter asking for $300. I wasn't arrested, so I don't think I have a criminal case against me. I was told that I could possibly negotiate this. How do I go about t...
In my experience, Goodwill refers case of theft to law-enforcement and a criminal charge then follows. You will likely receive a summons in the mail to appear in court at some point in the near future.
As for negotiating the civil penalty, there is no need to negotiate payment unless there is a pending criminal charge of theft and Goodwill is willing to agree to a Compromise of Misdemeanor pursuant to RCW 10.22.
I would advise you to contact local counsel to discuss your options in greater detail.See question

Your best course of action would be to retain an experienced attorney to assist you in responding the allegations made in the petition for a restraining order. Failure to do so will almost certainly result in the issuance of a restraining order for a period of 1 year.
If, after a hearing on the merits of the allegations, a judge were to issue a restraining order you could file an appeal of that decision.See question

Before spending additional funds on a new attorney you might wish to discuss with prior counsel why the first time offender waiver was not sought at sentencing.
That being said, it appears from your question that your husband might need to make a motion for withdrawal of his plea of quilt y. Under CrR 4.2 the court shall allow a defendant to withdraw the defendant's plea of guilty whenever it appears that the withdrawal is necessary to correct a manifest injustice. If the defendant pleads guilty pursuant to a plea agreement and the court determines under RCW 9.94A.431 that the agreement is not consistent with (1) the interests of justice or (2) the prosecuting standards set forth in RCW 9.94A.401-.411, the court shall inform the defendant that the guilty plea may be withdrawn and a plea of not guilty entered. If the motion for withdrawal is made after judgment, it shall be governed by CrR 7.8.
CrR 7.8 requires that motion for withdrawal of guilty plea must be brought within 1 year of sentencing.See question
