Possibly, if you filed a request for attorney's fees prior to the case being dismissed and you were otherwise entitled to fees under the statute or Rosen. There is a time limit, talk to your attorney.See question
My ex-wife has not let me see or talk the kids for over 1 year now. I have been paying her child support every month. Is there a way I can waive my rights to see the kids and not have to pay child support?
No, there is not. If you are divorced and have a time sharing plan in place you can move for contempt and to enforce that plan to see your children.See question

Hire a lawyer and file an unlawful detainer action. It's like an eviction, except it's Florida Statute 82. It's not a common thing, but I have done several of them. I recommend you hire an attorney who does evictioins and if he/she doesn't know what unlawful detainer is direct them to Florida Statute 82.See question
I'm turning 18 in two months, and I would like to take my senior year on flvs, but my father doesn't think it would be a good idea since I'm not much of a social butterfly. Am I able to withdraw from the high school I'm currently at, and enroll in...
As an 18 year old you can decide to do FLVS for your senior year. Also as an 18 year old your parents no longer owe you an obligation of support. If your parents require you go to high school, as opposed to taking classes inside their home using their computer you are going to have a decision to make. Are you speaking of supporting yourself once you turn 18 too?See question
n my Father's will he left his residence/Homestead exclusively to our sister, and 2 rental houses to the 3 of us to be divided equally as well as his personal property. The Probate is still not settled/closed but she is doing renovations to the ho...
I strongly recommend you hire your own attorney to proect your interests. Sometimees the homeowners insurance no longer insures the risk after the person died. Frequently the deductibles are higher than a television set, but using other money to improve property she is inheriting sounds fishy, hire your own attorney.See question
can a child 16 years old decided with which parent wants to leave
I agree with Attorney Feuerstein, legally the answer is no. From a practical standpoint I would hope that parents of a 16 year old could get together and agree as to what is in the best interests of their 16 year old because that child has very little time before he or she is out on their own and hopefully, functioning as an adult.See question
If I have Shared Parental responsibility and I get a passport with the other parents consent can I get in trouble. She doesn't know can she find out?
I don't even know how you will be able to do that because the last time I checked the Passport office requires either both parents' presence or an affidavit from the other parent along with a copy of that parent's driver's license.See question
I am in a probate with my dad's estate in Florida. His house is paid for but on the deed it state for example John smith and a married person. Due to the fact that my step moms name is not listed on the deed of the house but just my dad's does she...
You state that you are in probate with the house which leads me to believe you have a lawyer. You should speak with your lawyer. If this house was your father's homestead your step-mother has a constitutional right to a life estate. She may have other rights too. You have a lot of questions, you should sit down with your lawyer to get them all answered.See question
We were supposed to sell the house however she is renting it out without my knowledge. I don't know how much she received for move in fees or rent. She has no personal money yet she has taken 2 trips from Fl. to Ca. I had to pay all bills in Jan t...
I agree with both prior attorneys, you need to hire an attorney. If the house is still in an estate or trust you are entitled to an accounting. If it's titled in both your names you can consider a partition action. In matters regarding dollars the decision to hire an attorney to pursue your rights is a pure business decision, is the money you pay the attorney worth it in comparison to what you stand to receive? Don't let your sister steal your asset.See question
my husband and I have lived in Florida for one year we are getting divorced he wants to move to PA and he wants 50/50 custody I have a great job and can't imagine not having my son with me for six months. What will happen
I agree with both prior cousel and think you should strongly consider filing for divorce here in Florida soon because you want to stay here. I also do not know how 50/50 time sharing is going to be managed when your child goes to school.See question
