    THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE AS I AM NOT LICENSED IN YOUR JURISDICTION It would seem that you have some defense to this. Look for a local attorney experienced in these matters to further explore your options. Best of luck!

    Seek the advice of a Florida attorney who should be able to help you with this matter. I am not licensed in Florida, but have enough experience with Florida attorneys to know the laws of that state are often far from the majority rule in a lot of circumstances which is why it would be imperative to find local counsel. That said if you have been sued, cite the affirmative defense of the statute of limitations and go from there.

    Depending on the terms of the lease you should be able to sue them, so long as you can find the address in Wisconsin in which to serve them properly. The jurisdiction would either be the county in which you reside or the county the property is located in (if they're different). If the damages are under $7000, Small Claims Court would be your best option.

    1) I changed this from it being marked as Child Support to Criminal Defense. 2) Call around to local criminal defense attorneys to see if any would be willing to set up such a payment plan. There are also finance companies who can help you come up with the money needed if necessary. 3) If affording an attorney is a problem for your friend, based on the seriousness of the charges he should be able to get a court appointed attorney. Best of luck.

    You would be facing a driver's license suspension and $50 fine. Even if that seems trivial, you'd be best advised to find a criminal defense attorney to attempt to mitigate any damages.

    First the judge would need to grant the temporary order for it to go into effect. As for advising you on this matter, you provided no facts in which to really work with. That said, by the tone of the proposed temporary order your soon to be ex means business and you would be well advised to find a Family Law attorney to assist you in this matter. Best of luck!

    Do you have joint legal custody of the child? If yes, then the two of you must agree about the important life decisions regarding the child, if he is unreasonably refusing to do so then you could file a Complaint for Modification in the Family Court of jurisdiction citing a material change in circumstances that communications have broken down between the two of you and that it would be in the best interest of the child.
