    Ignoring a legal problem/issue is never advised as it will not simply go away. As the other answer stated, you can contest paternity. If you are found to be the biological father, Florida Statutes will guide the court in setting a child support amount. In doing so, the Court will consider your income and allowable deductions. Contacting a competent attorney in cases like this is often helpful as these cases can be complex.

    A subpoena only requires your attendance. You always have the right to assert your Fifth Amendment rights. If you have a lawyer, which it sounds like you do, you should talk with him/her as soon as possible about this situation.

    You can file an action for partition of the property. Ultimately, unless a settlement is reached, the court can order the property sold and the proceeds divided. You should speak with an attorney who handles such matters.

    Most often the contract will control. However, there could be ways to avoid paying the commission or other defenses available. It really depends on a fuller explanation of the facts and a review of the contract. I would encourage you to meet with a local attorney to discuss your case.

    In short, yes. But, there are specific steps a landlord must take. If your landlord does not follow the proper procedure, your landlord might be prevented from evicting you. If you are concerned as to your rights, you should consult with a local attorney who can advise you appropriately.

  6. Can someone please state in simple terms what the four corners of a complaint is? Is it...

    As the other answer states, the "four corners" means the words written on the complaint as well as any exhibits attached thereto. The term "four corners" is often used in situations when a judge's review of an issue (like a Motion to Dismiss) in limited to only the allegations in the complaint, including any exhibits. That is, the judge is often precluded from considering anything (e.g., testimony or other evidence) aside from what is contained in the "four corners" of the Complaint....

    The written and recorded documents will be controlling here. The provision you quote is specific to a particular situation. It might make sense to have a real estate lawyer review the governing documents and render an opinion as to any areas that might prevent or cap the increases.

    Whether or not she can retain your property is going to depend heavily upon the specific facts of your situation. Depending upon the amount of money she is seeking, it may make sense to broker a deal with her rather than pursuing a court action. That said, if she refuses to return your property to you you may be able to pursue an action in court. You should seek out the advice of a local attorney who can better advise you after learning all the facts of your situation.

    Unless there is a court order, your boyfriend cannot legally restrict you from traveling with your son. (That is not to say he will not try.) Given the apparent friction between you and your son's father, you might want to consider speaking with an attorney who handles paternity actions.

    I agree with Mr. Davis. You cannot be forced to leave absent a court order. If you have a lease, the terms may be controlling. There are also statutory protections available to tenants. You may want to consider contacting a competent landlord/tenant attorney for assistance.
