I agree with the previous response. The answer is no. However, the e-mail and the check or payment can be introduced as evidence that the payment was made upon her request and satisfies the amount you were required to pay her.
Seek a consultation with an attorney. You will want to respond to the order and be prepared to appear at the hearing.
Your wife will need to show that you committed an act of domestic violence by assaulting her, threatening to assault her, or committing an act that made her feel imminent harm. On the other hand, you have the very difficult job of showing there was no act of domestic violence or threat. The police report may be helpful if there is a claim of assault but no evidence.
You may seek contempt if your ex is violating an order of the court by not providing your portion of the income tax refund. If your ex is found in contempt, you will also be awarded the attorney fees for having to bring and argue the contempt motion. Furthermore, you should request through discovery (if not already provided) a copy of all the bank account information from marriage and separation. The funds in those accounts that he took are community as well.
Property purchased during marriage is community. However, if one party signs a quitclaim deed, that is evidence the property may have been intended as separate. The court has significant latitude when dividing property in a "fair and equitable" manner. There are other factors the court will consider like marital/equitable liens for improvements.
Social Security Disability and Settlements depend on whether they were for past lost income or compensation. Also, whether the money was comingled....
Your "question" is confusing. It is unlcear whether this is truly a no contact order or a domestic violence protection order. Regardless, violating either is very serious. I suggest you contact an attorney for a consultation.
You live in Centralia, therefore you can seek free legal advice from the Lewis County Bar Legal Aid in Chehalis if you cannot afford an attorney.
You can petition the court and request the prosecuting attorney remove the NCO in a criminal case. That does not mean the court or the prosecuting attorney will remove the NCO. The prosecuting attorney may not need you to testify to find the Defendant guilty of Assault 4- DV. However, prosecuting attorney's generally prefer the victim to testify and may subpoena you.
You may want to speak to the prosecuting attorney or the Defendant's attorney (whether appointed or retained.)
Each party can propose the distribution of assets and debts. If the parties don't agree, the judge will make the final decision regarding responsibility. The test is whether it is a fair and equitable distribution based on length of marriage, age, ability, income, etc.
Your response could be that he is responsible for any and all of his debts before marriage and after separation and all debts solely in his name acquired from 1998-2000. Or, ask him to provide a credit report showing all...
I agree with the previous answer. The state may not need the victim to testify if there are other witnesses. The State may proceed with charges if there is probable cause; however, this does not mean they will be able to prove the assault at trial. I advise you to contact an attorney to discuss this case.
I agree with the previous answer. You should seek counsel to assist you with establishing a Residential Schedule. Absent some limitation to your visitation schedule, you have the right to visit with your child that are enforceable in court. You will want to file a Petition for a Residential Schedule, Parenting Plan, and other pleadings to set your schedule and child support.
