    The order should state specifically what she is not allowed to do. This usually includes contacting the victim indirectly through relatives/third parties. You should hire a lawyer to bring this to the court's attention since criminal penalties may be imposed if she violates the no contact order.

    You may be able to file a motion to terminate child support for the 2 children who are no longer minors while a final hearing is pending on your motion. However, you generally cannot temporarily decrease child support for remaining minor children until the final hearing. This type of motion usually requires a special set hearing, and the time it takes to schedule one depends on the judge's calendar. This is not an easy process, so I encourage you to at least meet with a lawyer with whom you are...

  3. My son is 19 and in collage. I'm still paying my ex wife child support. How do I notify her that I no longer have to pay?

    The answer depends on whether or not you have a settlement agreement or order in place regarding child support and what it says about child support ending. If it says it ends when your son is 18 and no income deduction order is in place, you should stop making payments to your ex. If there is an income deduction order in place and your pay is being garnished, you need to file a motion to terminate the order right away. You likely will not get back the money you overpaid, so the sooner you file...

    Without seeing the child support calculation, it is difficult to say why it is low, but the amount of time each parent spends with a child is a factor in determining child support. If your financial circumstances have changed and/or the 50/50 time-sharing is not being exercised anymore, you may need to file a petition to modify your parenting plan/child support.

    The terms of the order apply until they are modified by further court order, or in some cases, by written agreement of you and your ex. So, the person who was awarded exclusive use and possession of the home, legally is entitled to remain in the home pursuant to the order. The other party may face an eviction action in the future if the party entitled to remain in the house wishes to have the other party leave. On the custody issue, again, the order controls, but the non-custodial parent...

    When you say you received custody, if this was by court order, it depends on what the order says. If no order was entered or the order is silent about support obligations, your husband likely has no obligation to provide financial support for the children since he is not their legal father. Consult with a lawyer in-person with whom you are comfortable to go over your options for finding and pursuing the legal father of the children for support, if any.

    Not necessarily. If your ex refuses to participate, the Department of Revenue can obtain his income records from the Department of Labor. His bank/employment records can also be subpoenaed on your behalf if you have information about where he works and the banks with which he holds accounts.

    If the statement was made under oath in a document, this may amount to perjury. It is up to the State to pursue criminal charges. You should meet with a lawyer with whom you are comfortable for more specific guidance.

    I agree with Attorney Golub. There is no definite answer to this question, as it depends on the weight the court gives to these issues in determining custody. One of the factors the court can consider in creating a visitation schedule under Florida Statute 61.13 is the mental health of either parent. This does not necessarily mean a parent will not have time-sharing with a child, it just means the court can consider it in determining what is in the best interest of the child. An in-person...
