I am sorry to hear all this. You have three options here:
1) Simply stop paying. Chances are that if they are under a state investigation, they have little time/resources/care to pursue a small matter like yours. If they do make a demand for continuous payment, then, or, in the alternative:
2) You may file a a COMPLAINT FOR DECLARATORY JUDGMENT
lawsuit asking the Court to sort this matter out between you and the company, and also possibly include a cause of action of FRAUD as well under the complaint. While this complaint (suit) is pending, you may file a Motion to Stay
(stay = pause) asking the Court to order that the payments be stopped until this matter is cleared up/decided.
An attorney is recommended for this. May I recommend the WA Bar referral program - here
. The attorneys are vetted and qualified. You should be able to find an attorney you are confident with and whom you can trust, and who is available ASAP. Some financial-based help is also available via this link.
Also, I can recommend three resources if finances are an issue. First, here is a list of all pro bono work in the state...http://www.abanet.org/legalservices/probono/directory/washington.html
…and another list:http://www.lawhelp.org
Finally, you may call your local law school and see if they have a legal clinic place available. The legal clinic is a free service the school(s) provide to the community. While they are often overbooked, they have openings sometimes. Here is the list law schools in your state:http://www.hg.org/law-schools-washington.asp
I hope this helps and clarifies. Good luck.
