I am recently divorced and my ex husband and I have 5

I am recently divorced and my ex husband and I have 5 children, 3 still under the age of 18. In our divorce we have joint custody and share the kids almost equally. We are both given up to 21 days of vacation time each year. My ex husband just informed me that next month, he will be taking all of the kids to Nigeria for 2 weeks (he was born there), and he asked for my help with passports. This trip will cost him thousands of dollars, however he owes over $20,000 in child support arrears, hasn't paid his spousal support in 4 months, and never finished paying the money owed to me per our MSA for the home buyout we agreed to.He needs my signature for passports for the 3 youngest children, but I have told him that I hesitate to because how can he incur so much new debt when his past debt to me and the children is still outstanding. Can I get in trouble legally for refusing to help with passports. Is that a form of extortion or blackmail?

My son was kidnaped by sheriff's and CWS in Tulare county. The first two months in their care, he somehow suffered severe lead pisioning, and was in the hospital 3 days. Then they gave him 4 immunization shots he already had, and changed his immunization records to do it! Went to the ER two more times, once having seizures. I am now being charged with bogus charges and I am assuming to shut me up. What can I do???? Help me please

I have a friend who is a refugee from Nepal. Her husband left

I have a friend who is a refugee from Nepal. Her husband left her when her daughter was born because he didn't want a girl. Later he kidnapped the child and tried to sell her. When she came here as a refugee 5 years ago World Relief aided in her resettlement. She had a caseworker (who no longer works at World Relief) who helped her sign up for assistance. She received cash assistance for a short period of time, but has been working 4 years now and receives only some foodstamp benefits. She thought they told her that she was legally divorced in King County. I took her to Olympia on Thursday. They found no record of a divorce, even after doing a 10 year search using different names it could have been under. She went to World Relief and they find no record of a divorce. We went to DSHS and they had no divorce decree in their files. She wants to apply for US Citizenship. She believes she must have the marriage issue resolved in order to do this. I don't know if that is the case or not. If it is, does she need to get a divorce. How does she do this? What does it cost? (She lives in Washington State).

My common area wooden fence was broken down by a person

My common area wooden fence was broken down by a person trying to take a short-cut. He had done this many times before without breaking the fence. One time he fell and missed hitting his head on a medium size tree. I said please don't do that again as I didn't want to see anyone get hurt or break the fence. He did it again (? how many times) and finally broke the fence which the condo association repaired. He was coming back the next day to walk through the opening and fled through the neighbors yard when he saw me. I went to the neighborhood behind me to see if they had seen which way he had come from. They said they had seen him cut through their yards when my condo neighbors saw him. One of the people that live behind my condos held my car door shut and when I finally got out he pushed me and said not to come back before listening to my question, that the other neighbors answered in a friendly and concerned matter. Do I have a case against him for assault and/or kidnapping or false imprisonment for holding my car door shut?
