    In general, move out or stay in, the mortgage has to be paid. The court usually does not allow one party not to make payments for household bills even when the court orders the party out of the marital residence, particularly if there are children.

    While laws vary state to state, in most states, there are no fault laws which allow either party to file for a divorce at will. The other party need not "sign" to agree to getting a divorce. In most states all you need to do if file a Complaint for divorce and have the spouse served in accordance with the state's court rules. You can't be forced to remain married. Find a lawyer to advise you about the court rules in your state, and file your complaint.

    Generally, the party filing first will have jurisdiction over the matter. Whether you should file in Florida or allow him to file in California may be a function of how the rules regarding equitable distribution affect you. You will need to consult an attorney to discuss the specific factors so that you can make a rational decision.

    When couples are married, the courts usually regard the marriage a partnership. This means that all assets and liabilities acquired during the course of the marriage are joint assets and joint liabilities. However, a strong argument can be made that your partnership broke up six years ago. You could not have thought that he was buying a house to benefit the partnership of which you were a part. You are entitled to child support and in most states, the amount of the child support is...

This is not an issue like child support which can come back before the court after the divorce is final. Pension is an equitable asset. Assets and...

    Custody is always based on what is in the best interest of the child. It is not likely that the court will change the child's living arrangements for a single month. More importantly, the court will only change custody where the situation warrants, and to determine whether the situtation is warranted requires and investigation and a hearing. Howecer, you are entitled to liberal visitation. You might ask your child's mother if she will permit the child to stay with you for the month in question.

    There are a lot of things going on here. Entrapment requires police involvement that is more than an undercover purchase., I am uncertain if you are saying that your boss made you sell to him on behalf of the police, or just that you were your boss' only source. The public defenders office is usually do a good job with drug cases because they handle so many of them. While you have provided some detail here, more is needed to provide you with competent legal advise.
