    I'm sorry to hear you are having such a difficult time. Florida does recognize a form of spousal support in relatively short term marriages. It is referred to as "bridge-the-gap" alimony to assist a spouse in moving from married life to single life. This type of alimony is based on the need of one spouse, you, for financial support and the ability of the other spouse, Kent, to pay. Even if your husband doesn't have a job, the Court does have authority to impute income to him. This allows...

    I agree with the prior answer, this is very complicated and there are many areas to investigate to determine how this happened. A Duval County family law attorney can help you track this down or you could consult Jax Area Legal Aid (JALA at 356-8371), Three Rivers Legal Services at 394-7450 or the Florida Coastal School of Law Family Law Clinic at 680-7782. I would start with the child support enforcement office in the county in which you reside. Duval County Child Support Enforcement's...

  4. Can I force my ex husband to continue paying the car insurance according to the divorce settlement agreement

    You can request assistance from the Judge by filing a Motion to Enforce. The Motion should describe the terms of your prior Order, then describe your ex-husband's failure to follow those terms. You conclude with a request that the Court enforce the prior Order, requiring him to pay as ordered. File the Motion with the Court that issued the original Order (if you still live in that area) and be sure to send a copy to your ex-husband. Then call the Family Law section of the Court and ask how...

    I agree with the prior answers to use a certified mediator. But if there was one issue that I wish would become more widely known is even with attorneys representing the parties, mediation is still used and, in fact, required prior to trial in all family law cases. Just become a spouse hires an attorney does NOT mean it is a declaration of war and that everything will become nasty and contested. Most family law attorneys work cooperatively with their opposing counsel, zealously protecting...

    I'm sorry to hear of your difficulty in getting this information. There are administrative proceedings through the Dept of Revenue, Child Support Enforcement, etc., that may be conflicting with your court order. I agree with the prior posting, a consultation with an attorney who can help track these sources to find the problem would be your best bet. Good luck!

  7. Can a 18 year old take her biological parent to court for child support payments.

    Well, the answer is really "maybe", as there are circumstances where a child can pursue child support against a parent for up to 4 years AFTER that child reaches the age of majority - in FL, 18 years old. But the parent that supported the child may also have a share of that claim. This is far more complicated than it sounds so, as much as everyone hates to hear this and wants an easy answer, you should at least have a consultation with an experienced family law attorney to fully explore this...

    I agree, check your Final Judgment, but generally child support in Florida stops at 18 or high school graduation.

  9. My divorce was just final 2 weeks ago. But I settled for far less. I was trying to be nice. We were only married 22 months,

    Unfortunately, I agree with the prior posting. A bad deal is not a basis to set aside a settlement agreement. And with only 22 months of marriage, it is unlikely you would have received any significant alimony. Florida law states that any marriage of less than 8 years in duration raises the presumption that alimony is not available to the lower earning spouse. Maybe a Pre-Nuptial Agreement could have helped but still a short term marriage. I'm sorry I cannot offer better news either. Best...

    Regarding the child support order, if it was obtained through the Child Support Enforcement process in the State of Florida, timesharing with the children is not within their jurisdiction. You have to file a separate action in the circuit court where the child lives to obtain other relief such as shared parental responsibility, timesharing, etc. Judges is Duval County generally follow a standard timesharing schedule like the one mentioned in the previous posting, every other weekend and one...
