I am engaged to get married later this year. My fiance pays child support for children from a previous relationship. Would his child support be amended to include my income?
I generally agree with the two previous answers. Hopefully, my answers are more succinct.
If you remain married, your income is supposed to be reported the next time your spouse modifies the child support. However, the court prob. won't take it into account. If you get divorced, your income will have no effect on the child support and you will have no child support obligation. While married, DCS, or your spouses ex spouse, can take your community property to pay off any child support debt.

Contact your father. Ask him to file a motion to allow you to see him. If you have a parenting plan, then his motion would probably be to enforce the plan. If you don't have a parenting plan, he needs to file a petition for residential schedule.
This is complicated, so your father will prob. need an attorney in Japan and in Washington. Good luck.

if you have a parenting plan, you need to enforce it by bringing a motion for contempt / to enforce.
if you don't have a parenting plan, you need to get one soon so that the other side can't do this to you.
I came home and my spouse had packed her bag & left, that was 8 years ago and I haven't heard from her since
1. make a sincere effort to find your spouse. this includes calling all your mutual friends, her family, etc.
2. document these efforts in a declaration in support of motion to allow service by publication
3. file the declaration and motion in court. Bring the decl, motion, and a proposed order allowing publication by mail to the ex parte dept
4. get the court to sign your proposed order
5. prep. file the summons and petition
6. publish the summons in the correct paper (Daily Journal of Commerce, if King County)
7. prep / file the declaration of publication
8 wait 90 days
9 prep / file motion for default, order of default, decree of disso, findings
10 bring motion for default, prop. and prop. orders to ex parte
11. Commissioner will sign.
p.s. this will only work if she doesn't respond.
My ex and I are in the middle of a divorce/custody battle. She is custodial parent and I am noncustodial parent, I have the kids every weekend. I talk to the kids every night when they are at their moms and now she is shutting all the phones off s...
If you have a temporary parenting plan and it has a provision regarding phone contact, then you need to enforce it. You do that by bringing a motion for contempt / enforcement.
If you don't have a temporary parenting plan, you need to get one. You do that by filing a motion for temporary orders. Make sure your proposed parenting plan has the provision you want regarding phone contact.
Also make sure that the final proposed parenting plan has the provision you want regarding phone contact.
It is standard practice to allow reasonable phone contact between the children and the parent with whom they are not residing. If the issue is contentious, then "reasonable" should be spelled out e.g. "every day at 7:00 p.m."
We have a PP in place where i have to have a "lay" supervisor for visits, however the mother will not agree on anyone so we have to go through state supervisors. The supervisor does not have anyone available for Christmas. I have contacted the mot...
In King County, the rules require you to provide the other party with 14 days notice of a hearing on the family law motions calendar. Thus, you have already missed the deadline. You have two possible options to get around this rule: 1) Ex parte order, & 2) motion to shorten time. I don't think either option will work. Ex parte is only for emergencies, where there is imminent risk of physical harm. A motion to shorten time is really for the trial judge. You don't have a trial judge because you already have a final order.
in the future, you need to plan ahead. Also, if the other side won't agreee to a lay supervisor, have declarations from a number professional supervisors saying they are available. FYI, the court would be sympathetic to a Xmas visit if your motion was timely.
I was looking over my child support worksheet and support order and I'm confused about something. In the support order it states that the child support covers all expensive except medical. But on the worksheet daycare was never entered as a cost f...
Looks like there is an error. If the daycare costs are fixed, they should be part of the child support worksheet. If, on the other hand, they vary, then he should pay his proportional share and that should be required in the order of child support.
You should file a petition to modify the order of child support.

Father sounds like a real jerk. Any decent parent would facilitate their child's participation in an activity like that. If the father really won't allow her to attend the theater production, you need to get an order suspending his visit for that weekend, and then file a petition to modify the parenting plan so that she can go to her activities regardless of which parent has her for the weekend. In the alternative, if she doesn't like going to his house anymore, file a petition to eliminate or reduce his time.See question

If you have an actual judgment, either in your decree or filed separately, and the real property is in the same county as the judgment, then the judgment is supposed to be automatically recorded in the county recorder's office. However, it doesn't sound like you have a judgment. A judgment includes a sum certain. Nothing in your question indicates a specific amount of money. Of course, if you wish to find out if your ex has a lien (or anyone has a lien), the best way is to look it up. In King County, you can use the King County Parcel Viewer online. The specifics might vary with the county. I don't know.See question
We have a parenting plan but the other parent stopped using visitation years ago and then moved far away, so they haven't seen each other and on top of that they never had a good relationship from the get go. Now, they are saying they might mov...
The Court is supposed to enforce the parenting plan until it is changed. Therefore, if you think visits are detrimental, you need to file a petition to modify the parenting plan. The standard for modifying the parenting plan is "substantial change of circumstances in the household of the non-moving party." Failure to exercise visitation for several years is almost definitely a subst. change of circumstances.
If you can afford it, I would hire an atty to file the petition now, before he shows up and causes trouble. If you can't afford it, you should try to do it yourself.
