Do I now have full custody again: Hi I have a daughter. My parents have partial custody due to my health at the time. I have since got married this year and have been told that when I got married and changed my last name the order was now null and void I want to know if this is true

Peter’s answer: This is not true. Your name may change, but you do not change and the order does not change.

At what age can kids in Washington state decide who they want to live with more for custody? : My child is 8 and we may need to re-arrange our 50/50 custody agreement given her dad's as she gets older. Her dad has Asperger's and while he's a great dad, their days are already getting more challenging and she is very stressed out.

Peter’s answer: Children do not decide custody, either the parents agree or the court decides. You may have a basis to file for modification, but i suggest you share the facts with an attorney who can properly advise you of the standard under RCW 26.09.260.

Does the court have jurisdiction still?: Child 18 yesterday. Yeah!! Child support order terminated yet there are arrears. This arrears issue needs to be addressed in court.

Asked 8 months ago in Child Support

Peter’s answer: Support becomes a judgement each month it is due and not paid, and accrues interest. There is a statute of limitation, but yest, the court does retain jurisdiction to enforce its judgement.
