    You are bound by the court order in place regarding custody until a new order is issued amending the current custody order. When you say you were "given primary guardian" of your son, it sounds like you mean the court granted you full custody/time-sharing of your son. If this is true, depending on what other terms are in the original order, you are likely allowed to move out of the home you share with your ex, keeping in mind that pursuant to Florida law, you cannot relocate 50 miles or more...

    If your son was removed from your custody by DCF, there should have been a hearing soon after the removal at which you would have been assigned an attorney if you could not afford your own. If that happened, you need to contact the attorney assigned to you. If there is no attorney assigned, you need to immediately set an appointment with an attorney in your area to go over what happened in your case. That attorney should be able to guide you on the next steps in contacting DCF and attempting to...

    It sounds like you need to file for a correction of the maiden name in the final judgment. Self-help may be able to assist you with filling out the motion for this, but it may be worth it to hire a lawyer to handle this matter for you. Since it is a seemingly uncomplicated matter, you may be able to find a lawyer to handle it on a fixed rate for you.

    It depends on facts not shared in your inquiry. Child support is calculated based on the time-sharing schedule, the incomes of the parents, amounts paid for daycare, etc. If a stipend is being received, this may be considered in the calculation, but it does not automatically mean that child support will be eliminated.

    If you plan to visit that is one thing, but if you plan to move that is another. Absent good cause shown to deny an out of state visit, courts typically allow parents to travel with children during their time-sharing within the US freely as long as the travelling parent gives the other a detailed itinerary and notice. Sometimes, the court may add a restriction that travel cannot occur without the written consent of the other parent or a court order, with the caveat the consent may not be...

    Typically, the spouses should maintain the status quo until there is a court order permitting otherwise. This means, insurance policies should remain intact, household bills should continue to be paid as usual, etc. Your sister-in-law should schedule a consultation with a lawyer with whom she is comfortable to get specific guidance on how to proceed. She may be eligible for spousal support from her husband even without a divorce case pending.

    This is a very difficult situation and one that unfortunately presents itself quite often in divorce cases. She will certainly argue that the ring, and thus the stone, was a gift in order to be able to keep it. This is a very fact specific situation and your son should speak with a family law attorney about it.
