    What have you been waiting for. Just because he is on the birth certificate does not give him the right to kidnap your son. Until the court gives him rights, he has none. I suggest you take the birth certificate and your identification and print out of Florida Statute 744.3012(1) to the police dept and demand that they escort you to pick up your son. If the bio dad moved two hours away I would suggest you check the county court court records and see if he has filed for custody of this child....

  2. Does a high school graduation with a receipt of a "certificate of completion" (vs "standard deploma") end child support ?

    A certificate of completion is the same as high school dipolma - evidentially you son was classified as being mentally handicapped. If that is the case, then his child support will cease as the school gave him their highest honor for his catagory. I think it is admirable that he feels he can do the work and wants a regular diploma but be that as it may, he has finished high school

    First of all she can not sue you as she has no standing to do so. In other words, she is not on the lease. Secondly, you may have violated the lease when you sublet your room as the lease may be against that. You will need to have it reviewed. You are however responsible for the rent. I suggest you speak to the landlord and see if there is a possibility of breaking the lease. You will probably lose the deposit but it may be worth it for you.

    Alimony is based on need in a lot of cases. However, your marriage is considered a short term duration and you actually never depended on your husband for income from what you are saying. I suggest you file for divorce and ask for rehabilitative alimony. This would allow you to go to school and be trained for a career. I am not saying you will get it but certainly worth a try. Contact my office for an appointment.

    You must keep the money separate and apart from any money or assets of you and your husband. In other words , do no comingle those funds. Keep records of where the money came from.

    My colleagues are more than correct. In order to really work this out, you need to hire an attorney who can prepare an equitable distribution of the debts. I hope that you have assets that can be sold and divided otherwise you will have to depend on a decision by the court that if your ex wife to be is to be responsible that she will pay her half . Unfortunately it looks like you signed for the loan. I suggest you see if you can recall any of the debt if your child has not yet started...

  8. Filing for divorce, husband lost job, how do I calculate child support? I will have soul custody.

    The court will impute an amount or may use the income average for the past two years as a start point. As to sole custody, is that something that you agreed on. Today the court calls our child system "time sharing" - there is no longer a primary custody. There is a parenting plan on the florda family law self help page that you can review.

    It does not appear from your statement that she is stealing your mail - rather she is sending it to you. The fact that she opened it does not necessarily mean that she is violating any rule of law, it could be a mistake. I suggest you file another change of address notice and also contact those known to you that would be sending you mail.
