I am in a child custody case in klamath county buy feel I should change counties to stand a chance
Probably not going to happen if the case is in the proper venue now. Once a court has jurisdiction they usually hang on to the case. About the only reason to move the case is if the child has moved to another county. You don't get to move a case around just to shop for a different judge. If you want to figure out whether the case is currently in the proper venue, make an appointment to talk to an attorney.See question

This is easy to fix. You and your husband should make an appointment with an estate planning lawyer. As part of your estate plan you should get a durable power of attorney and in the body of the durable power of attorney there should be a statement as to your preference who should be appointed as a guardian or conservator for you children should you and your husband die or become incapacitated.
The Oregon courts will honor your nominations for guardian and/or conservator that you put in writing. Typically this can be included in a durable power of attorney, but it can be done by another written document as well.
You will also want to discuss whether setting up some type of trust would also be advisable. If your financial plans include having life insurance, you may also want to set up a trust that the insurance is paid into and you get to designate who will be in charge of these funds. You may or may not want to have the same person that is raising your children handling their money. A trust will give you options and keep the money out of the hands of your mother and sister.See question

Avvo is not a legal service that represents you. It is just a listing of many attorneys who answer questions posted here on Avvo but they don't work for Avvo nor do they get paid. You need to peruse the Attorneys you find listed here on Avvo or otherwise look for an attorney near where you live and ask them to help you with your documents.
Generally speaking you can create a stipulated Judgment that will modify spousal support and you can send it to your Ex where ever he might be and if he agrees to stipulate, he can have it signed and notarized and return it to you for filing. An attorney should be able to help you create this document at a relatively low cost. If your Ex won't agree to a stipulation, then you may need to file for a modification. You can have your Ex served the papers for the modification in the country where he currently resides. The US court would still have jurisdiction to modify an order it previously made.
For some reason you put child support as the category but your concern only mentions spousal support so I will change the category to alimony.See question

Unfortunately I have been hearing stories of people being dropped for simply making claims even though the accidents weren't their fault. This seems to be a new trend with some companies. Some companies offer policies that guarantee you won't be canceled or give you some type of assurance. You should probably shop around for a new policy with a new company where this won't happen. I don't know if there is any thing that the Oregon Insurance Commissioner can do to help, but it's worth calling them to report this and ask them if there are some new policies being planned to deal with this.

Based on your long history of caring for this child you are in a perfect position to petition the court to be awarded custody under Oregon's psychological parent statute. Oregon really doesn't have a legal doctrine of abandonment of children. They are either in their parent's care, in the care of someone like you (you are a glorified baby sitter at the moment), or in the care of the State of Oregon. If the State of Oregon get's involved, the biological parents can have their rights terminated so that the child can be placed in an adoptive home. You can't bring a termination of parental rights proceeding, that has to be done by the State. However you can do something very similar by filing for custody as a psychological parent.
You should contact a lawyer to discuss this proceeding in more detail. There is more to it then can be discussed here on Avvo. You can read the text of the law here: https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/109.119See question

We do not live together but still married. He has out standing medical bills and a paper was served to him for the bills with my name on them too. I have no out standing medical bills. Can they granish my wages? What about his disablity SSI?
You will need to consult with an attorney and show them the paperwork to see why your name was included. Normally a spouse is not responsible for the bills of their spouse however there are two ways that they may be responsible. One is if they signed documents when the spouse was admitted for treatment that made them financially responsible for the bills. The other is an infrequently used Oregon Statute that makes a spouse responsible for bills incurred by family members under very limited circumstances. Show the paperwork to a lawyer to find out if you are improperly included and if so, figure out how to get yourself dismissed.
As for your husband, SSI cannot be garnished for debts as long as it is money traceable to SSI. He should be careful depositing his SSI into a joint account or an account with funds from another source. As long as only SSI is in his bank account and he can prove that it is only SSI, no creditor can touch it. (PS Sometimes creditors will garnish a bank account and neither the creditor nor the bank will know that the money is exempt SSI that is in the account. The debtor is sent paperwork to fill out and file with the court to contest the garnishment and this is where a person can assert the money is SSI and can't be garnished. Eventually it gets sorted out.)See question
On December 19th I was struck by a car as I crossed the road. I was not in a cross walk. I was standing in the turning lane as the lights changed and I stopped to let traffic pass and the lights change again. With out me seeing or hearing anything...
Since the car that hit you had insurance that is sufficient financial incentive for an attorney to take your case on a contingency basis if they think they will have a likelihood of prevailing. Attorneys will be concerned as to whether your decision to cross the street outside a cross walk was patently unsafe and if you would be considered to have had some negligence that contributed to this accident taking place should the case end up in front of a jury. But you can call attorneys and disccus your case to see if they feel that your case is strong enough for them to take your case. Attorneys that take cases on a contingency which is pretty much all personal injury attorneys will talk to you and screen your case at no charge, so you have nothing to lose. Pick up the phone. Just be prepared to answer a lot of questions and understand that an attorney may be risking many hours of their professional time and money out of their pocket if they take your case so they have good reason to screen the cases they take carefully.See question
