Can I stop my spouse from changing my child’s religion?

My ex husband and I were both raised as Baptists, and we got married in the Baptist church. Our 16 year old daughter was baptized in the same faith and my husband and I both agreed she would stay in that faith and attend church until she was an adult and could decide for herself. My ex has now remarried and his wife is catholic. He wants to convert to Catholicism and says my daughter wants to as well I am adamantly opposed to him trying to change my daughter’s religion and I think she’s only saying she’s interested in the catholic faith because her dad is pressuring her to join him. When we divorced, he and I were granted joint decision making authority over her. Can I use the joint child custody to stop him from trying to convert her to the catholic religion?

Will a judge require my ex to pay child support for college?

Our son is highly gifted and wants to attend Cornish College of the Arts here in Seattle. He isn’t qualifying for as much financial aid as he needs because his father makes too much money. I make a lot less and can only contribute so much to my son’s expenses. My ex can definitely afford to send our son to Cornish, but refuses to pay because he doesn’t want our son to go to an arts school. Is there anything I can do to get a court to order him to pay for some or all of our son’s college?
