After a year of mutual separation we are finally ready to file for divorce. We are in a really great relationship at this point and time. We are both very involved with our children and financially we understand their needs. I understand some will...
If you have children under the age of 18, you can't get divorced in King County without a parenting plan and an order of child support. Having said that, you could agree to a rather vague and flexible parenting plan and you could even agree to a transfer payment of 0. I don't necessarily recommend this, but you could do it.See question
I was in an verbally and emotionally abusive relationship and without getting into the details, was pressured into signing a parenting plan that limits my time with my child if I work part time. More specifically, the plan has distinct schedules f...
First, it is common, and sensible, to build the residential schedule around the parties' work schedules. That way, when you are off work, you can be with your child.
However, such a schedule could, potentially, also be a mechanism of abuse and control. He may be putting you between a rock and a hard place. If you start working more, you can't see your kid. If you don't work, you are broke. To change this, you need to allege a substantial change of circumstances and file a petition to modify the parenting plan. You should consult with an attorney to determine whether you think there has been a substantial change of circumstances.
Please provide referrals. This is in king county superior court. This is post-divorce. Should crush my ex and her novice attorney. Is not afraid of any family court judge. They should fear you because of your reputation. Money is not a problem.
I always recommend that the potential client interview several lawyers before choosing one. My process begins with a free phone interview. If the potential client likes what they here, they then schedule an in-person office consultation.
Also, it is appropriate to litigate if the other side is being unreasonable and can't settle. It is usually counter-productive to litigate for reasons of revenge and anger. Your goal should be a reasonable parenting plan, property settlement or whatever. If the goal is inflicting damage on the other side, you are likely to be disappointed at the end of the day.
My ex and I live 22 miles apart. Currently I pick up my son twice a week and drop him off to her once. She drops him to me once a week. I now have to move 44 miles away, and she says she refuses to bring me my son that far, and that technically it...
Without a parenting plan, either side can, legally, do whatever they want. If you get a parenting plan, the most likely provision will be that transportation is split. Either both parents will meet halfway, or one parent drives one way and the other parent drives the other. I usually recommend against meeting halfway because that requires both parties to coordinate their schedules and there is always traffic. I almost always recommend that the receiving parent pick up and the delivering parent drive the child to school. That way, you are resp. for the child when you have him. She is responsible when she has him and neither of you have to deal with the other.See question

Absolutely. If you want a binding agreement, put it in the divorce decree.See question
The parenting plans states that the education funds are to be joint and that no party shall use funds without the consent of the other. One parent took out the funds for her personal use without the permission of the other parent. Is this allowed ...
It sounds like you and your ex have a joint fund that is supposed to be used for your child's education. Withdrawals are to by mutual agreement. However, the other side made a withdrawal without your agreement. if this is the case, then the other side is clearly in contempt. You should bring a contempt motion If you disagree with how the other side spent the funds. The fact that the child is over 18 is not relevant, based on the facts you have stated.See question
I have a court judment of child support from Quebec, Canada. I live in Quebec. I am an American and a Canadian citizen.My ex husband lives in seattle WA he stopped paying his child support to me for my daughter who in 21 YO since september 2016....
FOREIGN ORDER. First, register the Canadian order in WA state. Then, file a motion to enforce. This involves calculating all the back support, child-related expenses, and interest. Then, once you get a judgment, garnish his bank accounts.
Unfortunately, in WA, support usu. expires when the child turns 18 or graduates from high school, whatever happens last. I'm not sure whether WA would enforce a foreign order that applies after that time. I would have to do some research before I formed an opinion on that.
My son's ex girlfriend is to visit their son at our house per the attorney, do I keep them in site?
If your were formally appointed a visitation supervisor, you should have signed the supervisor's oath which spells out what to do. There should also be a court order, again, with provisions about where the visit can occur.
If such details are lacking, I would ask your attorney. If the attorney is working for the other side, then you have a bit of a problem because he/she is not supposed to be giving you legal advice.
My husband and I married and live in Washington state. We each have 2 adult children from prior marriages. We have kept our financial assets largely separate, but for each of us, community assets are blended with non-community assets. We each want...
You can give away what you own to whoever you want. Including your children. This is easily handled by your will.
By the same token, you, obviously, can't give away what you don't own. Unfortunately, determining what you own and what your spouse owns in a community property state may be difficult. To really nail this down, you and your spouse need to inventory all your assets (and debts) and agree on who owns what. These inventories would be attached to your wills. You can prob. write these inventories in such a way that they automatically update. For example, "everything in the upstairs study," automatically updates itself.
Your will can have a provision that allows you to update your respective lists without formally amending / replacing your wills.

Provide the CPS report to the court. If the report says "unfounded," you are prob. o.k. However, if the report says "founded," you of course have a problem. Many years ago, CPS also had the option of "inconclusive." More recent reports don't have that option.
Any court and/or Guardian ad litem will take allegations of sex abuse, even if old, seriously, so I really hope you hire an atty.
