Moving was a big mistake, I was so stressed and upset and wanted to get a way, thinking about a fresh start. I regret it now.

Use this as an opportunity to find a place between or within the school zones of your kids elementary, middle, and soon, high schools. Within walking distance would be ideal.

While not King Co, it's still greater Seattle area. The courts are more liberal here than east of the Cascades. That translates into an uphill battle to get a more favorable outcome.

She'll hafta get her own medical insurance when divorce is finalized.
Meanwhile, for your kids, you'll want to orchestrate a 50/50 out-of-pocket split for all things related to medical: insurance premium; co-pays; unreimbursed; uninsured; etc.

Why not??
Was this a bona-fide judge?? Or was it something of a non-judge??.....like a commissioner or magistrate??

Vali wrote:This temporary order is reviewable after 90 days……Right now I can only visit with them a few hours 2 times a week.
A convicted felon living within commuting distance can get EOW and a mid-week dinner. I'd say it's time to get that "review."

Nothing will change until something changes.
You've gotta file pleadings to get the ball rolling. The sooner you do that, the better.
Also, living in the same school district allows you to "be there" for your kids.
If you move to the same school district, in terms of long-term strategy, you should be thinking ROFR.

Vali wrote:Will probably get a place by mid November. I can start having kids overnight then, if STBX will allow.
You should be keeping a well-written journal and a parenting time tracker. Document everything, including her parenting time refusals.

Vali wrote:She is trying everything she can to turn kids against me.
Stop blaming her. You’re the one that moved away from your kids.

Vali wrote:As a part of a family law I can not enter her residence.
Who told you that?? Charges were dismissed.
Does she have Exclusive Use and Occupancy of the marital residence??

Vali wrote:My wife has only worked part time…..Judge imputed her income at $16…..
I presume that’s $16/hr @ 40 hrs/wk, right??
BTW - The WA court expects able-bodied women to maintain full time employment.

Read The List. Learn from your mistakes. Then build a list of your own.

I feel your pain. I am going through the same thing in Whatcom County. Temp orders for 75% of my income. Not even enough left to pay the marital debt or basic needs for living.

I also do not get how judge could rule that I pay almost 80% of my disposable income as alimoni and child support.


When alimony payments were decided as part of TOs, did you present a realistic income and expenses balance sheet to the judge? In some places it's called a comprehensive financial statement.

Did you?
Whenever you think divorce is bad, remember there are worse things than divorce.

Nice area. It would be beneficial for you to start your own thread. You'll get more eyes and we can talk about your options.
If you can't be a good example, you'll just have to serve as a horrible warning.

Even if it impacts your taxes next year, one of the few options is to increase your deductions. Short term gain for some long term pain.
