In our parenting plan it states that we are each entitled to 14 days of vacation time with our son outside of the normal residential schedule. The only stipulation is that we must give the other parent 30 days notice and provide all relevant cont...
The vacation language is ambiguous. The intent of the vacation with parents is to spend time with the parent. On the other hand, the primary custodial parent does not have the right to micro-manage or veto what the non-custodial parent does during visitation.
Having said that, I don't think the facts are all that ambiguous. I think six years old is too young to send a child as, here is the phrase the airlines use, "an unaccompanied minor in the custody of the airline." If the child has a very close relationship with his aunt, and has done that flight many times before, then, perhaps, he is old enough. Otherwise, I don't think he is. Even beyond the unaccompanied minor issue, I'm not sure the six year old should spend 7 days alone with the Aunt, again, unless he knows her very well, has bonded with her, and spent considerable time with her.See question
we divorced, leave in separate states. I do not know where he is or how to contact him. I receive NO child support and I am taking care of my children everyday. I want to renew passports but need permission how do i get around this i live in Seatt...
If you are divorced, at least if you got the divorce in Washington, then you must have a parenting plan. If he has not followed the parenting plan for 6 years, then you do have a basis to modify it. However, there doesn't appear to be any immediate need to modify it, so I'm not sure you should spend your energy there.
The real issue is your passport. The US State Department will grant an exigent circumstances exception to the requirement that both parents sign the passport. There is a particular form you need to fill out. File that form, if they still won't issue a passport, inquire about what they need you to do, then do it. It may require a court order, but I doubt itSee question

The step-father has no legal rights to the child whatsoever. The parent's rights/responsibilities are set forth in the parenting plan. If the parenting plan does not put any restrictions on the father's right to attend son's ball games, concerts, etc, and the mother is allowing the step father to interfere, then she is in contempt and you should file a contempt motion.
However, contempt is an extraordinary remedy, and you really should consult and attorney before invoking it.
Obviously, any violence between father and step-father would be extremely detrimental to everyone, including the son.

You need to discuss your situation with a bankruptcy attorney.
Since you were never married, there is no community property per se. However, if you were co-habitating, and held yourself out to the community as a couple, for a sufficient period of time, then you may have a meretricious relationship and whatever debts and assets you acquired as a couple could be before the court for allocation.
The bankruptcy process will, essentially, freeze any domestic relations process until completed. So you will prob. go through that process firstSee question

1st issue is whether you are the legal father. If the mother identified you at birth as the father, or if you were present at the birth, then you should be on the birth certificate.
the next issue is whether you have a parent plan. My guess is you don't. If that is true, you need to file a petition for parenting plan / residential schedule and order of child support. Attach the affidavit of paternity to this petition. Under that cause number, you would then file a motion for temp orders: parenting plan & child support. In support of the parenting plan, you would file a decl from yourself stating the history and why you think the child's best interest is better served with you as the primary custodial parent.
You would also want corroborating declarations from 3rd parties, e.g. the child's Sunday school teacher, your neighbor, your mother, etc.
In addition, you will need to re-arrange your life so you can, in fact, be primary e.g. the child would need his/her own bedroom, daycare when you are at work, actitivies such as scouts, soccer, whatever.See question
We both live in the state of Washington. We do not have a defined custodial agreement so it is "shared" custody. He was recently released from jail for a sex crime and I have not let him see our daughter. He said he will only sign the paperwork...
The best course of action would be to file the petition for residential schedule immediately. Under that cause number, file a motion for temp. orders requiring him to sign the passport application and a release saying your daughter can travel abroad. If he then refuses to comply w/the order, file a contempt motionSee question
his exwife is taking him back to to court. will my income be taken into consideration for an increase in child support?
income of a new spouse / domestic partner is a discretionary consideration. Most commissioners / judges will not consider it.
The mandatory considerations are the income of the two legal parents (bio or adopted)See question

If you feel threatened by him, esp. if he has been violent, you can get at Domestic violence protection order requiring him to leave and stay away.
Another option is to go through the eviction process.
I don't think trespassing is the best choice. He has some claim to live there and you have tolerated it, perhaps since he turned 18. A trespass claim would, in theory, get you damages, but it wouldn't necessarily get him removed.See question

the form you need to begin the process is a petition to modify child support. If he won't sign the joinder, you will also need a summons.
Beyond that, the forms you need will really depend on what happens.
You will need to file the petition based on the deadline in your current order of child support. The most common language is: "until the child turns 18 or graduates from high school, whichever is last."See question
custody was awaded in ny 16 m ago but children were sent to ny 14 m ago is ny order still valid?
In Washington, the temp. order would be valid until superseded by a new order, final or temporary. The exception to this would be if there were an automatic sunset clause. For example, the order shall expire when the child turns 15, or whatever.
I would need more info to give you a more complete answer.See question
