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.
My daughter is a Junior in High School and almost 17 years old. Her father lives over an hour away from where she goes to school, works and participates in school activities. She has been elected the Run Crew Head for a play that happens during h...
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.
I have been living with a woman for slightly over one year and am about to receive my pension in a lump sum.
Your question is really about whether or not the court would find that you have a committed intimate relationship, and, if so, whether it might give part of your separate property to her upon dissolution of the CIR. First, the Court is very unlikely to find a CIR after only living together for a year. 2) However, even if the court found a CIR, it would not award her any of your separate property. That is the difference between a CIR and a marriage.
To keep your lump-sum payment from your pension separate, put it in a separate bank account and do not deposit any other money into it. That way, you will never run the risk of co-mingling community and separate assets.
Their divorce was done 7 years ago and it came along with a child custody order. The problem is that the ex-wife filed these in a State none of them ever lived in. It is my understanding that since both parents and the children never lived in that...

As part of our 2016 divorce a QDRO was finalized awarding my ex-wife a portion of my pension. My ex wanted me to buy out her interest in my pension, we agreed and she signed a document to that effect, I then gave her the agreed-upon amount of mon...
Interesting question. I have never had this come up before in my practice. Having said that, I can't think of a reason why you couldn't reverse it. If the pension is already in pay status, then you and your wife would need to agree on what to do about the payments already made. If it isn't in pay status, then enter an agreed order vacating QDRO and restoring the status quo ante. Be sure to speak to the plan administrator first to make sure you get the exact language you need. You want to have the order pre-approved by the plan administrator before you send it to the judgeSee question
My wife and I may unfortunately end up divorcing. At the moment we're still living in the same house (in separate rooms), and for the short-medium term I want to keep it this way so that our kids have continuity and do not suffer. She says she doe...
HOUSE. If your wife alleges domestic violence / immediate risk of irreparable harm, she can get an ex parte restraining order and get you kicked out immediately. On the return hearing, she may be able to make that order permanent. If your wife does get an ex parte TRO, she can bring a motion for temp. orders and prob. get you kicked out in a matter of weeks. During the dissolution process, either the parties will agree who gets ownership of the house or the court will decide. (The agreement or court order could be to sell the house instead.)
RELOCATION. Right now, it doesn't appear as if there is a court order, so either party can take the children to whatever state the please. Having said that, the Court will not look kindly on taking the children out of school and preventing contact with the other parent. Once you get a custody order in place, neither party will be allowed to relocate with the children without compliance with the Relocation Act.
