What is the Procedure to File a Motion for Temporary Orders in WA Seattle Attorney Eric Engel

What is the procedure to file a motion for temporary orders in Keene County? Hi. I’m Eric Engel, a Seattle divorce lawyer with the Engel Law Group here in Seattle, Washington. If you’re getting ready to file a motion for temporary orders you need to make sure that you do it correctly. There are few things to keep in mind. First, you need to take a copy of your motion and supporting declaration (usually called an “affidavitâ€�) and any proposed orders that you want and you have to serve it on the opposing party and file a working copy with the court. You’re also going to have to make sure that you file a copy with clerk’s office. Once you do that, you need to make sure that you give the other.

Side 2 weeks notice before the actual hearing. Now their response will be due 4 court days before the actual hearing date. You’ll get a chance to do what’s called a “strict replyâ€� 2 court days before the hearing date. There’s a couple of things to keep in mind. Once you get the response, you have a very short window to turn around and issue a strict reply – that’s 48 hours. Now that copy has to be filed not just with the court but a working copy with the judge and also you got to deliver a copy to the opposing party before the noon deadline. Finally, one other thing you want to make sure you do is don’t forget to confirm your hearing. So many people forget to make the mistake of failing to confirm.

A motion for temporary orders. If you forget to confirm your hearing, you’re going to have to renote the hearing for a later date. Which means that if there was anything that was pressing – like maybe you needed money – you’re going to have to wait another couple weeks before you can actually get it. Why am I telling you this? I’m telling you this because you’re getting ready to file a motion for temporary orders and you’re curious what the timelines are and what you need to do to be ready for it. These are the types of issues that we deal with on a daily basis. If you have questions, give us a call. I’m Eric Engel. Thank you for watching my tutorial.

What is a Motion for Modification of Child Support Seattle Family Law Attorney Eric Engel Discusses

What is a motion for modification of child support? Hi. I’m Eric Engel, a Seattle divorce lawyer with the Engel Law Group here in Seattle, Washington. A motion to modify child support is a formal request by one party, usually to get more money or to get more child support from you. Now in Washington state, you have 3 different ways you can file for a modification for child support. In other words, you can increase your child support or decrease your child support. Those 3 ways are by motion for modification, a petition for modification, and by agreement of the parties. All 3 are fundamentally different. A petition is a formal action in which you’re allowed to conduct discovery – in other words, you’re allowed.

To find out what your opposing party is making. A motion is more limiting. You already know what the other party is making and you’re just making the court to make a determination of what the new child support should be. And then there’s by agreement, which is relatively simple because the parties agree. So it’s relatively easy to get the court to enter in a new child support order. Why am I telling you this? I’m telling you this because you’re either thinking about increasing your child support or you’re thinking about trying to pay less child support. These are the sort of problems with deal with every day here at the Engel Law Group. If you find yourself in this situation, pick up the phone and give.
