we are unmarried
She ended this 5 year relationship and I moved to WI 2 years ago.
WI is better but as a tactic is WA possible.
This woman has lots of money and is seeking to break me financially. But she will be wary of law costs so I wonder if I can gain some advantage by doing this is WA.
The deal was made there. The event was the discussion where she said she wanted it in WI and I agreed BUT... the work is actually owned by my irrevocable trust administered by my son and daughter. They are (were) located in Seattle.
Lawyers here have reminded me that I really have/had no power to enter into an agreement BUT I really didn't think about this as it is fluid. All my art is owned by the trust for years.
I also would like to know if there are costs involved and/or damage to work can I sue her in WA for those expenses?
thanks very much
