    Lots of people with criminal charges and injunctions, etc. get divorces so I don't see how that would prohibit you from finding representation in Florida for a divorce. You have a child here, so I would recommend contacting an attorney in your county to obtain a divorce. Florida can enter a child support order for your child, which you can then most easily enforce and modify as needed here. Gwen J.

    You can file a Petition for Dissolution or an Annulment. You will want to consult with an attorney regarding the differences and how to proceed so that you can obtain an Order giving you the relief you request, regardless of whether your husband responds or not.

    Sorry to hear your situation. A new attorney can simply file a substitution of counsel which is a lot easier and less confrontational than having to "dismiss" your attorney, which requires them to do a Motion and Order of Withdrawal. If you do not wish to continue with your current attorney's representation, I would suggest you contact them to find out clearly the status of your case, and then seek alternate counsel to finalize this for you. A new attorney may not charge you nearly as much as...

    They are trying to establish your earnings history and capability for the purposes of calculating child support. You are required to turn over recent checking and savings statements, and provide proof of your income for last year if you do not have your tax return completed. They also ask for health insurance coverage because you get a credit for that when calculating child support, and they also want to know if the child is or can be covered through health insurance available to you (...

    This sort of scenario happens quite frequently. A couple gets in a heated argument, someone calls 911, and things get out of the parties' own control once criminal charges are started. Make no mistake these laws are in place for a reason, but for some they are more than a situation calls for. The State of Florida is now prosecuting your fiancee, and may continue prosecution regardless of how you, the actual "victim" feels about it. You might try reaching out to his defense counsel, as they...

    There is no "legal separation" that can be filed with the Courts in Florida, though I have done Petitions for support (spousal and/or child support) unconnected with a Dissolution of Marriage. It is rarely done since if you are filing for such relief it usually means your marriage is broken so you would just file a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage (Divorce). Attorneys fees can vary from attorney to attorney, and depend upon what relief you are seeking. So I would suggest contacting an...

    Either spouse can file for a divorce in Florida if you have lived in the State for at least six months immediately prior to filing, and you believe your marriage is irretrievably broken. You do not need to establish desertion--it's more of a matter of whether you believe you can repair your marriage. If not, you can file for the divorce. And you can request in your Petition that you have the exclusive use and possession of your marital home.

    Alimony is a rather grey area of the law, subject to the considerations listed in the Statute referred to by my colleague. You do not have a short term marriage, there are children involved, and you have been dependant on someone who earns a pretty decent figure. At the very least, you should schedule a consultation with an attorney, such as myself or any of the other family lawyers you may find here, who can offer you some free, initial advice on how to proceed. Please be aware that given the...
