Ex had drawn up so court papers because she was leaving the state. These papers were signed by the ex and her Notary Public friend on 2/5/1993. These papers stated that Keith and her will share JLC, while she has SPC. She wanted Child support upped to $500/mo. There’s a few more stipulations, but it’s visitation we’re concentrating on.
As far as visitation goes, the ex was agreeable to the following:
“a. Winter vacation defined as the period starting in December from the children’s last day of school immediately preceding Christmas through and returned the first Saturday immediately preceding the first day school commences in January the following year.
b. Spring vacation as defined as that period referred to as “spring break” or “Spring” by the children’s respective schools. Visitation beginning after the last day of school before “Spring Break” and must be returned the first Saturday immediately preceding the next school attendance day.
c. Summer vacation as defined as any four week period between academic years. Children are able to visit at any agreed upon four week period after the last day of any academic year and must be returned prior to the Saturday of the next academic year.
The previous three vacations are the only agreed upon visitation periods. All air travel, bus travel and care travel are to be divided 50/50. Furthermore, it is agreed that the preferred mode of transportation is airline.
Both parties agree that Respondent is to give Petitioner a five week notice as to when children are to deport on winter and spring vacations. Petitioner is to notify Respondent as to the exact reservations made for the children’s departure and return, and at that time to inform Respondent as to his expense for travel. Respondent is then to dispurse immediately funds for his half of the expenses to Petitioner.
Both parties agree that Petitioner and children’s place or residence is the State of Washington and that Respondent’s place of residence is the State of California. The children are not to vacation outside of the state of California without expressed written consent from the Petitioner. The children are not to reside outside of the state of Washington without the expressed written consent of the respondent.”
There is a “FINALITY OF AGREEMENT” clause that states that “this agreement contains the entire agreement of the parties and otherwise supersedes any previous agreement or agreements between the parties. No other agreement, statement, or promise made by or to the other party or the agent or representative of either of the parties, shall be binding on the parties unless it is in writing and signed by both of them subsequent to the day of the execution of this agreement. “
Under “GENERAL PROVISIONS” it’s written that “THIS AGREEMENT BECOMES EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY AS OF THE DAY AND YEAR FIRST WRITTEN ABOVE, FEBRUARY 4, 1993.”
Well, Keith DID NOT agree with the children being moved out of state so he did not sign this drawn up Stipulation Amending Custody, Visitation and Support of Minor Children.
The ex packed bag, baggage and their two kids up and moved anyway, within a week.
