  • Emergency temporary custody

    On july 12, 2013 I was granted emergency temporary custody of my 4 year old daughter. A year later I have not heard or seen my daughter's mother. She has made no contact what so ever. I was wondering how long will it take for me to get full cus...

    Alec’s Answer

    The court will not automatically grant you full custody of your daughter following a temporary custody order. The temporary custody order will remain in effect until you return to court for modification of it.

    Given that your daughter's mother has not been seen for the past year, you have a strong case for full custody, especially if there was a strong basis for the emergency temporary custody.

    I suggest you contact a local family law attorney. Many offer free consultations, myself included. Best of luck to you.

  • What do I do if I lost a motion to contest the suspension of my driver's license for child support, but need it to get work.

    I've worked in medical sales for 20 years but lost my job. I've had a hard time getting work and fell behind on support. My ex requested it be suspended because she doesn't believe I'm not working and doesn't get that all companies do a backgrou...

    Alec’s Answer

    Sorry to hear about your situation. You need an attorney to assist you in filing the proper court documents and preparing for hearing on your request to reinstate your driver's license. I understand you believe you do not have the means to hire an attorney, but not taking an attorney to that hearing in the first place has landed you with a suspended license. Don't make the same mistake again.

    I would seek consultation with a family law attorney. Many offer free consultations, myself included. Many offer payments plans. An attorney may not be as costly as you believe.

    Best of luck to you.

  • Child support contempt hearing

    Ex was found in contempt for unpaid child support.. He is currently $20,000 behind and the amount just keeps going up. There is a pending court date for the unpaid support and I was told that I needed to attend. What happens at this hearing? What ...

    Alec’s Answer

    $20,000.00 is a large amount of money to be owed. Does he have any assets? You might want to speak with a family law attorney about having his child support order reduced to a civil judgment subject to execution (seizure of his personal property).

    As for the contempt hearing, it will be up to the hearing officer to determine whether his failure to pay is willful or unwillful. He can be ordered to pay a purge amount and placed in jail if he fails to do so. A lot can happen at these hearings.

    I suggest you contact a family law attorney to discuss your matter with. Many offer free consultations, .myself included.

    Best of luck to you.

  • My daughter's father is paying 400 of the 580 that is court ordered and he now owes over 1700 in past due! What can i do?

    He was court ordered to pay $580 but he decided that he was only going to pay $400. It sucks but that $180 that I'm not getting is hurting me. I am pretty much doing payday loans to keep things up to date, but still not able to pay for everything....

    Alec’s Answer

    Your ex has been ordered to pay $580.00 and is failing to do so. A motion for contempt (failure to obey) a court order is one of your remedies. You can also seek attorney's fees for having to bring the contempt motion.

  • My x is telling our 9 yr old daughter things that should be between us only .. and wont follow custody plan

    I have primary custody of our daughter my x doesent show when he should and vise versa also need to have support 're done he pays the minimum and we are both employed . Im lost I have no idea what to do or where to begin I cant afford a attorney .

    Alec’s Answer

    Unfortunately, this type of situation is not uncommon. You need to review your court orders and see what provisions he is not following. Once you figure out all of the violations your ex is committing, you need to file a a motion for contempt with the court that entered your order.

    Have you consulted an attorney to determine if you truly can't afford one? Many offer free consultations as well as payment plans.

    Best of luck to you.

  • DI I AS THE DEFENDANT HAVE TO APPEAR IN COURT FOR A COURT CALL FROM THE PLAINTIFF WHICH IS ONLY 15 MIN IN MY FORECLOSURE CASE?

    IT IS SAYING GOVERN YOURSELF ACCCORDINGLY DOES THAT MEAN I HAVE TO GO?

    Alec’s Answer

    If you do not have counsel representing you, and you get a notice to appear at a court hearing, then yes you must appear. To not appear runs you the possibility of losing your case and having a judgement entered against you, as well as the loss of the property.

    Bring the notice of hearing to a attorney for consultation. They can take a look at it, take a look at the court docketing system, and tell you where your case is at and your possible outcomes that way you have no surprises.

    Many attorneys offer free consultations, myself included.

    Best of luck to you!

  • My son is in the burn unit with burns on 40% of body while working in the jail can we seek help for future rehab or any needs

    He will need alot of care to walk and use arms

    Alec’s Answer

    Were the burns 2nd or 3rd degree burns?

    The route you will need to take will depend on whether your son was an inmate doing work, or whether your son was an employee of the jail/corrections department.

    If your son is an employee then you would need to seek consultation with a worker's compensation attorney.

    If your son is an inmate, then you would need to seek consultation with a personal injury attorney. The personal injury attorney would evaluate your son's claim based on the circumstances surrounding how your son got the burns to determine if your son has a claim.

    Most personal injury and worker's compensation attorneys offer free consultations, my firm included. It will cost your son nothing to consult with an attorney so he has nothing to lose.

    Best of luck to him and a speedy recovery.

  • I noticed that I am not getting my ordered amount of alimony. What do I have to do to get the amount I was ordered to get?

    I am from florida

    Alec’s Answer

    You would need to file a motion for contempt with the court and allege you are supposed to be paid the full amount of alimony and you are not. You need to serve it upon your ex. You would then need to call the judge's judicial assistant for a hearing on the motion for contempt and the court will ask him why he isn't making the full alimony payments.

    You may want to consult with a family law attorney. Many offer free consultations, myself included.
