My husband's whereabouts are unknown. He has nothing to do with us financially.
Or, you can do a diligent search for your husband. That means checking with the post office for forwarding address from his last known addresses, checking with relatives, former employers, etc. Then you do an affidavit showing all the ways you've looked for him, submit it to the judge. Once you get approval for service by publication, you post a notice in the local newspaper for 4 weeks. He has another 4 weeks to respond.
So the answer is the divorce takes about 90 days. Good luck.
I sign a contract for installation of shutters to my house, i deposited $2,350. this was in June 2015 as of September 2015 they are not installed. the contract states 3 weeks for installation. the company will not return my phone calls.
By Florida statute, a contractor who receives a deposit more than 10 percent of the contract or final price for work to a residence must apply for necessary permits within 30 days, and start the work within 90 days after receiving the permit. Of course, it's not a good sign the contractor isn't returning your calls. You can call contractor licensing and enforcement at (786) 315-2561 to see if there are any complaints against the contractor and if the contractor is licensed. Or, you can file a complaint with them. Another option is to file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. Either may get their attention. Good luck.See question
my lawyer is lousy and i want a new one...i have paid his firm huge fees and paid everything, i do not owe him any money and I still have funds left in his trust... I sent him a letter saying I am terminating his representation over 2 weeks ago, a...
You as the client always have the right to discharge or terminate your attorney's representation. You need
to go ahead and get a new attorney, and that new attorney will take care of the other attorney's withdrawal.
Usually, the previous attorney agrees to sign a stipulation, because that way the previous attorney avoids going to a hearing on his motion to withdraw. Your previous attorney is probably just waiting for that.
As to the trust funds, the attorney will have to return that to you, minus any costs such as court reporter fees. You are not stuck with him, you just need to get another attorney as soon as possible. My firm does
complex marital, and we do a very good job. If you can afford an attorney, you should avoid ever appearing before the judge pro se, or without a lawyer representing you. You don't want to attend a hearing on a motion to withdraw of your previous attorney, and be surprised by an order to respond to discovery very quickly, or a sudden trial date. Good luck.
I have an idea of who the person is by the messages that were exchanged with some of my contacts. That person took a previous private conversation I had with another person where I talked bad about (who I believe to be) the suspected hacker and se...
That is called cyberstalking. You can go down to your local satellite courthouse domestic violence division and file a restraining order for cyberstalking. You would have to have some credible fact showing that you know the person who is responsible. The law of this state where you reside applies. The person from the other state has to respond in the court proceeding, or the injunction will get entered against him. The clerk at the domestic violence division can answer any questions.See question
The final hearing was on July 14, 2015
Yes, but you really should do a Motion for Rehearing to preserve your issues for appeal, prior to appealing. You only have 15 days to do this Motion, meaning you only have 2 more days before it is do, so you need to consult with an attorney immediately. You also will need to order the transcript of the trial. In fact, divorce cases are better to appeal than other kinds of cases, as they tend to get reversed at a higher percentage..See question
x girlfriend (who has our baby) had her request for injunction denied. After trial, it was denied again. She filed an Appeal in appeal court. It is outrageously expensive. Can attorney fees be awarded in Appellant Court? I know in the lower co...
No, per appellate rule, a motion for appellate fees must be supported by a particular contractual, statutory, or other substantive basis. This means if you don't get fees in the lower court, you generally can't get them in the appellate court. As you already know, although you can get fees pursuant to statute for family law cases, you cannot get fees for domestic violence injunction cases. Notwithstanding, there is a very limited exception for attorney's fees awarded as a sanction, or for a frivolous proceeding, but these situations are quite unusual.See question
when does the district court of appeal make a decision on a Petition for Writ of Certiorari if the other party does not serve or file a response?
The other party has nothing to do with it. The District Court of Appeal generally has discretionary review of a Writ of Certiorari, which means that it can decide whether or not to hear the issue. If it
decides to look at your Writ, it will issue an order for the other side to respond within so many days. That doesn't mean you win, simply that it will look at both sides of the issue. Or, the Court can dismiss or deny the Petition outright, without ordering a response from the other side. Usually the Court will decide either way within a week or several weeks.
No one can answer that question without more details. How long is the marriage? How old are each
of you? Do you have any children? Have you contributed in any way to her career or more generally to your lifestyle? Did you put her through school before she obtained her current position? Are you on a degree/career track with your studies? And today, now that courts split the assets/liabilities and pensions 50/50, alimony is a little less likely to be awarded than before.
As he was sole practitioner & thus his P.A. is no longer in business.
If you were represented by the P.A., you must sue the P.A., not him personally. Just make sure before you do so that you don't have other remedies available which should be tried first. These include an appeal (which must be done within 30 days of a final judgment), or Motion to Vacate based on mistake or fraud, etc. (which is normally done within 1 year).See question
I HAVE APPEALED DECISION IN 11TH CIRCUIT WITH THIRD DISTRICT---IN THE MEANTIME I HAVE FILED A SPECIAL SET HEARING REQUESTING ALL LEGAL INVOICES FROM PLAINTIFF SO I CAN VERIFY JUDGMENT AMOUNT----PLAINTIFF STATES I HAVE NO JURISDICTION WITH LOWER CO...
Generally, if you are appealing a final order, the trial court loses jurisdiction and has no power to hold a hearing. That goes both ways, and applies to the Plaintiff also. However, the judgment should already be specific as to amount, otherwise it is not a final order. If you appealed a non-final order determining
liability but non-specific as to amount, the trial court retains jurisdiction to enter a final order.
