  • Can I request for his financial affidavit and ask for some sort of support for our son despite the agreement of no support?

    My ex husband and I reached an agreement during mediation, 50/50 custody/ time sharing with both our children and neither one of us pay support to the other. But he hasn't been spending any time with our one year old, he's with me a 100% of the ti...

    Omar’s Answer

    If there has been a final judgement, have an attorney review and if there have been substantial changes, file a petition to modify the parenting plan and child support. If there is no final judgment, file a motion to set aside the mediation agreement; and do it fast. Your best move right now it to meet with a family attorney as soon as possible to have your documents reviewed. Good luck.

    Omar’s Answer

    Your questions is missing a lot of information. If there was not prenuptial agreement, the fact that there was not joint cars or joint accounts does not make the property non-marital. Generally speaking, she is entitled to half of the assets and half of the liabilities. Invest in yourself and talk to a family lawyer as soon as possible. Good Luck.

  • Am I able to attend / enroll into college or university even without my residency card or do I need to have my green card

    I have a temporary / conditional green card, but I lost it... I was advised to replace it but somebody told me that since I Will be applying for my permanent residency card on february, I should just wait and not to replace it anymore.

    Omar’s Answer

    You must check with the College or University you want to attend. They are the one that can answer your questions as to what do you need to register. You will be applying for permanent residency in February, this does not mean you are going to get your card right away. This process could take months. In the mind time, you do not have any identification not to mention that you will not be able to travel outside of the USA.

    Omar’s Answer

    Deadbeat parents don’t learn their lesson until you go after them. Do you have a final judgment for child support from a judge or from ASUME? Who was awarded the tax exemptions?

    The answers of the two questions will give you the solution (avenue) you are looking for. Call the IRS and put a fraud claim on your son security number. If the Court awarded you the tax exemption, file a motion for contempt. ASUME deals with interstate child support but like every state agency, it takes time. You have to help them out. Good Luck.

  • How can we get this divorce done and what can we do if the wife contests and asks for money? How long will it take?

    My partner and I have been together for over seven years. We have a 6 year old and 8 month old together. He has been separated from his wife for around 15 years. We tried to get an uncontested divorce several years ago but she contested saying she...

    Omar’s Answer

    I agree with my colleagues. He needs to move on and put this behind him. Since your Partner has resided in FL for over three years, he can file for Divorce here and get on with his life. It will take longer to server her by publication, but I can be done. To get it done, I strongly suggest he gets an attorney to accomplish the divorce. Good Luck.

  • Can we get custody without hiring an attorney

    My husband found out he has a 3yr old daughter, however the mother signed over temporary custody to her parents. The Birth mother is willing to put him on the birth certificate, if we get him on his daughters birth certificate can he get the concu...

    Omar’s Answer

    You need to consult with a family attorney right away. As Mr. Feuerstein stated, being in the birth certificate does not grant the father any legal rights. The more he waits the more contested the case will be. He needs to file an action for Paternity and claim his rights. The mother signed over temporary custody to her parents; this custody is temporary. He must file his petition before the grandparents file an adoption petition. If he wants to be part of his daughter, time is of the essence. He needs to consult with an attorney and get moving fast. Good Luck.

  • I live outside of the United States in Puerto Rico. My husband has filed a lawsuit, assuming for a divorce, in Puerto Rico.

    However, the papers have not been served. What are my options. He left our family to live in Florida almost two years ago and has not been regularly paying any support for our child who is ten years old. I would rather we work this out amicably ...

    Omar’s Answer

    If he filed in the FL and the children have never been in FL, the jurisdiction is over the children is in PR. Also, everything related to assets and debts located in PR can only be heard by a judge in PR. I completely agree with Mr. Coutere. Do not waste time and forget the whole thing about working these issues as a family. He will be asking for whatever is in his best interest, not yours. Whatever you agree now cannot be changed later unless substantial changes occurred later. Remember that child support in PR is until the children reach the age of 21 and they will use the income of his household (him and his future wife) for child support calculation. The children are under PR jurisdiction and he has been out of the PR for two years. The odd are in your favor in PR. Do yourself a huge favor and file for divorce in PR ASAP. Good Luck
