I recently was allowed to relocate back to my home state with my children. In the orders during visitation time I'm required to pay a certain percentage of the flights (which is fair) however when this was decided the fathers court order child sup...
I would file a contempt as to father not paying all of his child support to you and then file for a modification of the order on the transportation expenses, I would have you request that until father can become current on all of his child support obligations, that he not only pay for his pro rata share of the transportation but your as well. He could use your portion towards any past due support but that would not require you to pay any funds out of your pocket which might affect your financial stability. If you do not request such modification with the court then you must follow the court order as he could hold you in contempt not only for not paying the transportation costs but if he does not get the parenting time as well as a result, then you are in violation of the parenting plan too. If the court finds you in violation of the parenting plan on two occasions, then they can consider a change in custody. You want to make sure that you follow the orders and that is why you should not only seek the contempt but modifcation of the trransportation provision.See question
I filed for divorce on 05/19/2016 in King County, WA. I have since relocated myself and my 18 year old son, he is in his senior year of high school, to Texas. The last hearing date was 9/12/2016. I was denied a telephonic hearing, but my spouse ...
You have a long marriage and therefore there is no defined end date. The court can order support for a longer period of time than what husband is asking for at trail but It will depend on how much you earn and how much husband earns and the division of the assets. Normally as a rule of thumb the court will grant 1 year for every 4-5 years of marriage but in a long marriage as yours it can be longer than the 4-6 years he is proposing. Since I dont know the incomes of either of you it is hard to determine a length but I would at least make sure that you dont agree to less than 6 with maybe a review after that time or a step down in the amount over next few years. For instance if you want 10 yrs, then each year after 6, you decrease the amount he would owe you each year. Say he is to pay 1000.00 each month but on the 7th year he pays 800.00 a month and so forth. You have to remember that support is determined not just on the length of marriage but on your need for such support and husband's abilitiy to pay. You each must be able to meet your basic needs such as rent, food and utilities. Any support to you that husband pays is income to you and is taxable and any income he pays you is deductable. That income is includable in the child support worksheet for the purpose of determining child support as well. I suggest that you meet with an attorney about the dates you missed so that you are not sanctioned and you can get your case back on the schedule.See question
My X husband was vindictive in doing this, he is $23,000 in arrears of support and only get kids when he wants them not scheduled visitation. He says he intends to make my life a living hell and that he is doing. I have no permiscuous past and I...
Well I do think X is being vindictive but since I dont practice in your state I do not know what the courts will do with his allegations. I would make sure that the person in question is clear with no record, has a good job, etc. I dont know if X has ever had the children with other spending the night but you might want to find out. I would also look to your final papers and see if there is anything contained in them that excludes you from having 3rd parties at your home with the chidlren overnight. I would also keep a log of his visitations with the children. Keep a calendar of all of his visits, this can show the court how much he is truly involved with the chidlren.
I would also seek the advice of a local attorney to review your final documents.See question
Father does pay child support. They where never married. he is not on birth cirtifacte
First of all your girlfriend must read her court papers very carefully to determine if she must give notice to father of moving at any time. If father has visits, then it would be my impression that she would have to go to court before moving with the child from the state. The reasons would be for the court to set up a new schedule for dad if the court allowed the move and to ensure that the move was for the interest of the child. The important issues here is that the child continue to have a relationship with both parents. I dont know what type of relations the child has with her father and that would be important for the court to know as well. If mom was to move with getting court approval, then dad could file a motion with the court and order that the child be returned to the state until the matter court be resolved.See question
My wife and I both walked out of orientation prior to seeing a mediator over custody of our daughter. We agreed to handle it ourselves but then she went to the later court date behind my back and got custody. I found this out and told her I was fi...
I not sure what type of case was filed, since your talk about your wife, I will assume it was a divorce. If you have been served with a reqeuest to enter default, they you will need to file a response to the petition that she severed you when this matter first began. If you do not file a response, then the court will grant her default and can can everything she requested in her petition.
I would suggest that you check the court file to find out the progress, obtain the necessary documetns that you may need to file and contact an attorney as soon as possible.
My sons father and I had our custody hearing today and I do not know how to get the Minute Order , so I can get the FINDINGS ORDER AFTER HEARING FORM ??
Normally, you can go to the clerk of the court and requet a copy of the clerks mintues or minute order from the hearing that you want and you can get a copy. There is normally a charge and I am not sure what it is but I will guess it is less than a couple of dollars. the findings Order After Hearing Form is normally prepared by the parties or their attorney after the hearing and submitted to the judge for signature.
Thank youSee question
His visitation is "reasonable" even though he never visits nor tries.
You must look to your orders very carefully as to see if there are any restrictions on you leaving the state with the minor child. Even though you have full legal and pyysical custody of your son, the courts have givine him reasonsable visits. If you are unsure, the best course of action would be to get a concsultation with an attorney in your area to review your documents, this should not take any longer than 1/2 to deteremine if there are any restrainsts. If there are restraints, then the you will need to petition the court and request that you be able to move. You will need to proivde the court with whtere you are moving, why and provide them informaiton on why that is in the best interest of the child. Thank youSee question
My ex-wife took a job in California (We were both living in Washington at the time.) last May and has been living there ever since. In June, she handed over custody of our 12 year old son to me. Up to that point she was the primary care-giver fo...
You neee to seek a modification of the parenting plan under the Revised Rules of Washington. Even though the child is currently in your case and control, the current parenting plan is still the order of the court. You can seek a modification based on a change of circumstances, wife has left child with you and moved to California and the child has been intergrated into your home. I would suggest that you file you Summons and Petition to modify as soon as possible. I also suggest that you seek the advice of an attorney in your area.See question
It is extremely difficult to find any information on this subject, because how is it possible for a custodial parent to be in contempt of a support order? In my case we share certain expenses along with a shared custody. There is a pending conte...
First of all I not sure whay you would be modifying in the future, the support order or the parenting plan. you must understand that one has nothing to do with the other as they are separate issues and we look to them that way. if we are stickly talking about money issues, and mother not reimbursing father for covered costs, then the court could order that father would be able to deduct those costs from the child support after giving mother notice and opportunity to object to the costs that he has proposed are hers. It certainly is not helpful for her to not pay the exepenses of the chidlren that have been ordered by the court.See question
