    Obviously, you guys have a communication problem rather than a caring problem. He seems to want good things for his child like you do but the two of you have differing views as to how to define that. Its time to explore what is really going on between you and the courtroom is not the best place to do that. You need a really good family therapist or to get into a really good family group program. Many times when we think we are protecting our child we are pushing a different agenda about...

    You have gotten good advice from all of the lawyers answering, One additional thing to keep in mind in regard to your decision to litigate this issue: truth has no real impact on a decision made by the Court in family matters but the " perception of truth" is everything. That is to say, the two most important words in our practice are " prove it". Simply knowing what you believe to be true will get you nowhere unless your witnesses testimony can establish an appearance of the truth. Be sure...

    Sadly, the law requires you to disclose that you are pregnant before you get your final judgment. Since you are married, you will need to name both your husband and your child's father in your divorce action. It's a mess and you will need a good lawyer.

    First your case is rather typical and our family law judges see them all of the time.Do not be overly concerned by the threats. They are common. Child support is always subject to modification based upon a substantial change in circumstances not contemplated at the time of the last support order. The assumption here is that the last support order was based upon a sworn financial affidavit that was used with yours, to work the legislative guidelines to formulate the support amount. It is true...

    A lot of nasty things you would want to avoid. Child endangerment, molestation, battery, etc. Your defense attorney will be arguing that you lacked the intent to commit a crime based upon the fraudulent information which was provided to you. Hopefully a grand jury will see that early on but that depends on what the State Attorney is willing to share with them. Be sure your criminal defense lawyer requests that happens. Child crimes can be statutory in nature so the fact that you were unaware...

    Yes, sadly that is legal. Florida, like the other states in which I am licensed to practice, GA and AL are all "Employee At Will" states. What that means to you as an employee is that without a written contract of employment, you can be fired for good cause, bad cause or no cause at all. Given how hard it is to get a job in this economy, you can see how devasting this can be for an employee. For this reason unions have become popular in that their members work under a union contract. Many...

    Welcome to the crazy world of dependency. Best advice, get a good lawyer and one that is not afraid to ask the tough questions and challenge the judge if necessary. Judges can be very helpful but they are conditioned here to support the DCF and it takes a great judge ( and there are a precious few) who will actually listen to the facts and hold DCF accountable. These are expensive cases that never end so be prepared for that as well. I have fought these cases for years and they are frustrating.

    Your ( and her) obligation to the Condo Assoc. is a civil debt that you both will continue to owe individually regardless of your divorce settlement or the final judgment of dissolution of marriage. You can allocate the obligation in the dissolution agreement and enforce it in the family court but that still does not relieve the civil debt or obligation to pay the Condo Assoc.

    You are absolutely right! Welcome to the world of personal injury litigation. You need an attorney as its obvious that you are going to have a fight on your hands. Call me and I can help you with this. You obviously see that you are not going to be able to handle this alone. The good news is that most of us who handle these personal injury cases do so on a contingency basis and that contingent rate is set by the State. That means you will owe nothing for attorney fees if you don't recover for...

    You are correct, the driver is liable to you for his negligence. The owner may be liable to you as well under a theory of agency. There may even be liability to you from the owner of the boat which was being transported if he employed an inadequate company to move his boat.
