I am going through a bitter divorce and want to represent myself pro-se. I have extensive knowledge about the foundations of law from a 10 year inquiry to Halacha, in addition to having read Blackstone, Locke, Holmes Jr., Jefferson, articles published by Cato Institute, and more. It has been my legal arguments that have resulted in several wins at the court, however my counsel has undermined my efforts in trying to give my wife our business. She has resigned due to conflicts of interests and I have retained counsel for the business matters. That said, they cannot represent me in family court and I still have a lot of problems to address. On thursday, an order was ruled on with presentation set for Tuesday. Court rules give 10 days to request a revision, this is time sensitive.
I am seeking a qualified legal professional to help draft documents for me to present pro-se to the courts. The current motion I am working on is a motion to revise court commissioners ruling. It will go before a bonified judge. Please be willing to validate assertions with references to statutes and prevailing precedents.
In this case our marriage was on the rocks, I owned a home prior to marriage and the mortgages have always been in my name. We have two boys ages 10 and 6, I have been a work from home parent for a better part of the relationship. The court is likely going to see her as economically disadvantaged because I have an income available from a business owned prior to marriage, as separate property (and in a community property state). She has been involved in the day to day activities of the business and has been awarded temporary control of the "day to day" activities. THey will be awarding child support and possibly alimony on Tuesday. THe parenting plan that was ruled on, submitted by her counsel, and will be entered into the record on Tuesday provides that my visitation is limited to every other weekend and one midweek visitation on off weeks. A statement from our live in nanny states I was the one that worked with the children on education related tasks, to help them with dinner, and the one to show loving affection. My wife has admitted, on record, to having depression and she suffer from cognitive distortions that result in the distortion of facts to supplement and support her extreme emotional reactions to normal actions. She has been ordered to a full psychological evaluation. I have agreed to provide reciprocal access to a Domestic Violence Assessment that found I did not need any treatment.
The DV assessment stemmed from a false accusation of "cyber-stalking" which results in a temporary DVPO that forced me from my home for over a month, from access to my business that I am 100% shareholder and manager of (she has claim under community property but operating agreement states that in case of divorce or community property, if I have to transfer interest, her shares become nonvoting shares). It also prevented me from seeing or speaking with our children for over 6 weeks and has resulted in $22,000 in legal fees and emergency lodging expenses.
I was exonerated from the DV charges, my wife admitted I never hit her, never threatened to hit her, and no evidence supporting "mens rea" was asserted her attorney, even when
There have been no substantiated and legitimate claims or evidence entered into the record that prove that I have committed any act of misconduct, or to support any action abridging my right to equal parenting as guaranteed under RCW 26.16.125. To prematurely award custody without equitable access to the care, custody, and control of our children in the absence of such evidence is a violation of my right to substantive due process. Per Federal law, a parent has a fundamental due process right to parent a child. Troxel, 530 U.S. at 65; seel also Meyer, 262 U.S at 39, Pierce, 268 U.S. at 534-35, Yoder, 406 at 232-33. "the interest of a parent in the care, custody, and control of their children is perhaps the oldest of the fundamental liberty interests recognized by this Court" Troxel, 530 U.S. at 65. RCW 26.16.125:"The rights and responsibilities of the parents in the absence of misconduct shall be equal, and one parent shall be as fully entitled to the custody, control and earnings of the children as the other parent"
Celia has not asserted any substantiated claims of misconduct and I was exonerated of all charges of domestic violence for allegedly "logging into her email". I have been substantially involved in the children's lives, being a work at home father. I have converted one of our living rooms into a learning lab and have a better aptitude for education. I would like the court to consider these arguments and adjust the parenting plan to include after school visitation from 330pm to 530 pm, for the benefit of the children and to provide Celia with opportunity to work 8 hours shifts at our market.
