In the divorce decree, it says my wife is entitled to half of my pension. I have no memory of my wife getting any of my pension, or a payout from this pension, at the time of my divorce when I was working. I'm about to retire next year. Next ye...
If it is in the decree she is entitled to it. For her to access it there needs to be a qualified domestic relations order that directs the pension to pay her.See question

Married 47 years. Family home. I need to protect myself. What options do I have if I do not agree to sell?
I agree with Mr. Nelsen. An attorney should review with you all your property, debts and assets, income, etc. It all is included and relevant to final property distribution. This forum is not conducive to giving direct advise.See question

4.2 Major decisions says 'joint'
No, it does not. The time allotted each parent designates who is the primary parent. Usually the primary parent is then designated as the custodial parent but that clause does not have much bearing on the reality of parenting plans. Joint decision making means just that, the parties have equal say in major decisions regarding the child and if in conflict that cannot be resolved often the dispute resolution clause is invoked to settle the issue.See question

You can not stop him from filing for a dissolution. From what you say it is not agreed...so if he serves you with a filed petition you need to respond to the petition within 20 days. Do not sign anything you do not 100% understand. Perhaps you should seek a consult with a family law attorney in your area, most give free consults.See question
My ex-husband does not follow the parenting plan. What should I do?
You can follow the dispute resolution process outlined in your Parenting Plan or move to enforce the parenting plan. You could bring a motion for contempt but those require personal service. The advantage is if he is found in contempt more than twice there are serious consequences, including possibly losing visitation all together.
I advise seeking a consult with an experienced family law attorney. Most give free consults.
If my boyfriend and I are co-borrowers on a mortgage loan together, and I put 20% of my own money down (that I had before we met), if we were to split up and have to sell the house, would we by law split any gains 50/50? We are each planning to pa...
You might consider having an agreement drafting the defines how you agree to apply and designate the funds. You may call a pre-marital agreement or something else. It is a contract. I strongly urge you to have an attorney draft it that practicing in community property law so you can carefully construct the language as it pertains to WA state community property and marriage.See question
Clark County, Washington... We have a 5 year old... There is currently a no contact order in place (he isn't allowed to contact me or my mother, domestic violence) that he violated almost 6 months ago so it's been extended... I tried to divorce hi...
I recommend filing for divorce and getting immediate temporary orders with a pp in line with the order of protection. Thee earliest you can be finalized is on the 91st day after filing, worse case scenario is trial. But if you want to be divorced and have orders in place you need to file.See question
