    A paternity action is when a Father who never married a Mother establishes his rights and responsibilities to his child. This type of action establishes things like time sharing schedule with the child, child support, and holidays, to name a few things. If there is no court order determining him the Father, he has no rights when he picks up the child from school. The Mother can ask the court for a pickup order as she has a superior right to the child. Good luck, Vanessa Vasquez de Lara, Esq.

    Unless the private settlement agreement was ratified by the court, you can't be held in contempt as there is no violation of a court order. It sounds like you need to hire an attorney to handle this for you as you do not seem able to manage it on your own. The best protection from these kinds of situations is trying to document everything that happens when it happens by keeping a journal as it happens. He will need to prove his allegations in court. Simply because he makes accusations does not...

    If there is a court order mandating your ex to do something, and she fails to comply your only recourse is a motion for civil contempt. You shouldn't wait as your claim is strongest close to the court violation. You should absolutely go to court and get court orders that detail his rights and responsibilities. A mediator is a great tool for resolving issues. With regards to the income tax dependency, only the parent whom the child resides with the majority of the time is entitled to the...

    Your friend needs to speak to his public defender to find out what the status of any item filed and of his case. It seems like your friend asked for something (pro se means self represented) and the court may have dealt with his request at the hearing today. Its hard to say with such limited information. Good luck, Vanessa Vasquez de Lara, Esq.

    Child support in Florida is retroactive two years from the date of filing. Therefore if you do not accurately represent the necessary information for the things you paid on your ex's behalf to the judge, you may be on the hook for back child support. I would strenuously urge you to get an attorney to help you deal with this situation as it looks like you may be subject to an expensive lesson in trust if you continue hoping for the best from the other side.

  7. Can the wife receive alimony after a 26 year marriage even though she worked if the husband was the main provider.

    In Florida, alimony is based on one spouse's financial need and the other spouse's ability to pay. Since you've been married for 26 years, your marriage is considered long term and you qualify for permanent alimony. Alimony is a tricky issue though, since your spouse would probably not pay it voluntarily. This means your divorce would probably be contested and you should be prepared for the fight. You should make sure to consult and hire an experienced family attorney. Good luck, Vanessa...

    Besides contacting DCF, your only other choice is for your son to file a Petition for Paternity and to have the Mother drug tested in court. This is not a short process, but if the child is in danger, your son can seek expedited relief. You should definitely consult with an attorney prior to moving forward.

  9. How will the judge determine who will have to pay for the psychological evaluations in Dade County?

    If the GAL is requesting a psychological, the court will likely order one. Through Family Court Services in Miami-Dade, the psychologicals are reasonably priced. The court may also order one party to pay for it, but that the allocation for entitlement of a reimbursement to be determined at a later time. The judge may also order that it be done at a reduced cost. Who is paying for the GAL's services? It sounds like there is some protracted litigation going on here and the court may find that the...

    You need to file your taxes claiming her for this year and for last year. The IRS will then investigate why the child was claimed by both parents separately. Unless he can demonstrate that he had physical custody of her for more than 50% of the year, he is ineligible to claim her without a court order awarding him the dependency. Therefore it may delay your refund, but ultimately you'll be able to get the dependency, not only for this year, but for last year as well. You may want to consult an...
