  • Can my husband put me out the house and im pregnant with his twins, although we have a prenup

    he is abusive verbally and he said to get house his life. he is cheating

    Veronica’s Answer

    I agree with my colleagues. You need to consult with an attorney and have the prenup reviewed. You'll also be entitled to child support for the twins once they are born.

    Please feel free to contact my office for a free consultation at (305) 519-4983.

  • How is child support calculated in a default divorce

    I am married with two children and I filed for a default divorce since my wife refuses to cooperate. The court is asking for proof of her income to calculate child support but she refuses to submit any paperwork or show to the hearings. Can I stil...

    Veronica’s Answer

    I'm not sure what you mean by a default divorce, but child support is calculated the same in any type of divorce (contested v. uncontested). Have you or your attorney filed the appropriate motions and/or requests to try and get her to produce documents? If she refuses to submit any documents income can be imputed to her. Timesharing also impacts child support and needs to be addressed.

    If you wish to further discuss this issue, please contact my office at (305) 519-4983 or info@seminolaw.com. Good luck.

  • What are my rights if i get divorce?

    Im married to a police officer for 4 years and I have a son from a previous relationship.

    Veronica’s Answer

    I agree with Attorney Gutin. This is a very broad question. If the two of you do not have any children, then your divorce will be limited to equitable distribution (division of all marital assets & liabilities). However, you should contact a local attorney in your area to further discuss the specific facts of your case. Try to find an attorney that offers free consultations.

  • TPR, Custody, or Abandonment issue? How can I keep my daughter's mother away from her?

    My daughter's mother does not take good care of my daughter, and then stopped coming around or calling as of about 4 months ago. I still let the maternal grandmother keep my daughter overnight, and her mother will show up there unannounced and un...

    Veronica’s Answer

    If you and the child's mother are not married, then you technically do not have any parental rights. The mother could technically come and take the child from you at any time. It is highly recommended that you File a Petition to Establish Paternity, Timesharing, and Child Support immediately.

    If you wish to further discuss your particular case, please contact my office at (305) 519-4983.

  • Can my ex-Wife now say that the child support that I have been paying does not cover primary education tuition?

    Hi, My ex wife and I have a child together and I am paying $700 a month in child support that we agreed to with our lawyers as part of our divorce settlement. Nowhere in our agreement does it say that I am to pay tuition separately. She is now as...

    Veronica’s Answer

    I agree with Attorney Lewert's thorough response. The short answer as she stated is that If the MSA doesn't address private school tuition, then no, you are not required to pay it.

    If you wish to further discuss your MSA, please contact my office at (305) 519-4983 or at info@seminolaw.com.

  • Question .. if i file for dissolution of marriage on my own, can i later decide to seek legal assistance

    Marriage lasted 22 years, one minor child involved. I live in FL, he in IL. Marital home in IL which I am not interested in.

    Veronica’s Answer

    Yes, you can begin the process pro se and later seek legal counsel; however, if at all possible, I recommend that you try to seek legal counsel upfront. I've had several clients come to me after starting the process pro se and they fail to properly plead certain things and it costs them more money for me to have to go back and correct things. Good luck.

    What would be the purpose of suing her? Suing her just because? Get your divorce, stay away from her, and move on.

    • Selected as best answer

    Fire your attorneys. Either draft your own Marital Settlement Agreement and Parenting Plan and file it or hire an attorney to review it. With regard to the GAL, you and your wife can agree to get rid of him/her also and move forward with your settlement.

    Good luck.

  • What can I do to get correct and accurate family law advice?

    My ex and I have equal custody and no decreed child support. Each parent is responsible for the child "while she is in the care of said parent". However, when I divorced my 12 year old daughter opted to live with her father, she was disappointed...

    Veronica’s Answer

    I'm not sure what your question is... If your ex wants child support from you (which you will probably owe him since the child is residing with him), then he has to petition the court for it. Why would you initiate court action? If your ex wants child support, let HIM file something.
