    While I do not have the details of your parenting plan, it is likely that you will be allowed to move. Generally speaking there is a presumption that the primary custodial parent will be allowed to move. You will be required to give proper notice to your ex-husband and your parenting plan should have a summary of those provisions. Because it is your ex-husband's personality to fight everything, I would advise meeting with an attorney beforehand to review your parenting plan with you, discuss...

    It is unclear from your post why he is alleging you are in contempt or exactly what advice you are seeking. However, it sounds like he might be trying to have unsupervised visitation and is alleging you are in contempt for not allowing him to do this. If the parenting plan requires him to complete treatment before he can have unsupervised visitation with the children, then you can point out to the court that the reason you have not agreed to unsupervised visits is because he has not complied...

    I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing this and it sounds like a difficult situation for you and your boys. You will need to hire an attorney to help you. It is not clear to me why the GAL was appointed, but you will need to have an attorney and perhaps an expert of your own to respond and present your side to the Judge.

    It sounds like you have a family matter and a criminal matter pending. It is difficult to provide an answer to your questions because I do not know all of the facts about your case. It is also unclear from your post what documents you are trying to give to your former spouse. If the advocate you are talking about is with the prosecutor's office you should talk to your criminal defense attorney before having any contact with someone in the prosecutor's office. You also may need to...

    In Washington, the state's UIFSA (Uniform Interstate Family Support Act) statute applies to situations where there are competing child support orders issued by two different states. You say that there was a child support motion filed in 2011 in WA, but it is unclear whether the court in WA actually issued an order of child support. The first step will be to figure out if there are two court orders (one from a court in Washington and one from a court in Georgia) addressing child support or...

    It will depend on the specific facts of your case; paternity matters can be complex. However, challenging paternity is generally started by asking the court (by filing a legal action) to adjudicate parentage pursuant to Washington's Uniform Parentage Act.
