    It seems from your question that you have been served with a Request to Produce - in which your Husband is asking you to provide copies of certain documents. This is standard in most divorce cases. If you do not produce the requested documents, your husband can file a Motion to Compel, where a judge will order you to produce those items and may even make you pay your husbands attorneys fees for having to file it. If you do not produce the documents after the Court has ordered it, your husband...

    In Florida we have open discovery laws. Which means any evidence you intend to introduce at trial, the prosecutor is entitled to see. Likewise, what ever evidence they are going to present must be disclosed as well. The decision to take the case to trial or to take a deferred prosecution offer is personal and you must do what is in your best interest. If you take the case to trial, six jurors will base their decsion on the evidence. Many times, it is hard to predict what the jury will find (...

    In order for your fiance to adopt your daughter, you will need to marry your fiance and either have the father voluntarily terminate his rights and consent to the adoption or have the father's parental rights terminated. Having the state terminate his rights is not easy. However, if you can show the Court that the father is incarcerated in a state or county correctional facility and the period of time he has been or is expected to be incarcerated will constitute a significant portion of...

    You have not provided nearly enough information to fully advise you on which parenting plan you should submit. I would highly recomend setting an office conference with an attorney to fully discuss your case so that you can have a better understanding of which one is best for you to file.

    It is possible the judge could modify the child support amount at the final hearing. The only way for the judge to modify it, would be that the amount of support agreed on is more or less than what the child support guidelines say child support should be. Florida courts must use the child support guidelines to calculate the child support each parent must provide. Although Florida's family law judges can deviate from the guideline amounts, judges must provide written justification for any...

  7. Can I use my ex-husband's previous conviction on a Domestic Violence charge as a defense in a modification of time-sharing case?

    To fully answer your queston, you would need to provide more information. Specifically when was he arrested and convicted of Domestic Violence? Was it before or after the divorce. If it was before the Final Judgment. If they were prior to the Final Judgment, then it is probably not relevant, as the legal standard for a modifcation of timesharing is a showing of a substantial change of circumstances since the entry of the Final Judgement.

  8. A stipulation was signed for me to pay child support through Tallahassee, however, no case is set up yet, what do i do?

    I am guessing that the order adopting the stipulation has not been signed by the judge yet. If you pay your ex directly, you may not get credit for they payment. I would hold on to the money and send all payments (including the past due ones) directly to Tallahassee as soon as the case is set up.

    Depending on the wording of your Right of First Refusal and the number of hours it is for, you may need to file a Motion to Enforce Final Judgment. I would speak to an experienced family law attorney to review your Final Judgment before filing.

    This would be a contract law question and a question for an attorney in Georgia, which is the state's whose law would apply. You would need to get an attorney up there to answer this question.
