I have a custody hearing coming up on Febuary 3rd. It is highly likely that the mother won't show up. She didn't respond to the initial supeona. Would it be in my favor to file a motion to default prior to the court date of Feb. 3rd? Remember, fil...
She would not need to be advised of the motion for default because the Clerk issues the default without a hearing. I would show up on February 3rd to prove your case, which means prove the allegations in your petition.See question
I am not contesting it but want to know if I make a list of demands how do I get that legalized
You need to sit down with a lawyer, possiby more than one lawyer, to answer this question. You have a 20 year marriage you are dissolving. This issues involved are too great to get an individualized response from an on-line forum.See question
I'm trying to help my mom transfer the house title into her name. My father has passed away. Both of my parents name was on the house. Just trying to determine the correct form to use to transfer ownership. There was no will and no other parties ...
Lawyers go to school for many years and then practice to get good at what they do. Do it yourself legal can cost you in the long run. If the house is already in both names, mom probably only needs to record a death certificate, affidavit of continuous marriage and affidavit of no florida estate tax due. If the house is only in his name she needs to do a probate. A paid off house is a valuable asset. It's worth hiring a lawyer to be sure it is done correctly.See question

If he won't leave on his own you are going to have to get a court order to get him out. You need to file an unlawful detainer action pursuant to Florida Statute 82, or you can offer him a sum of money to leave.See question

Unfortunately, what you are experiencing is not uncommon. Filing false reports is a crime. Try reporting it to the police or ask your attorney to contact the poice. It is my experience that if the poilce contact your ex and tell him to stop, that usually works.See question
I filed for divorce and served my husband with a copy. He answered within 20day period: "I currently am unable to admit or deny the allegations raised in the pettion, due to my job I am out of state for prolong time. I need more time to answer." T...
If the document your husband filed is titled "answer" I would ask the court to set the case for trial.See question
my wife has cancer and is dying we have 3 grown children her sister is trying to give a resusitation order what rights do we have on this
I am sorry you are dealing with this. Unless your wife's sister holds a health care power of attorney for her, I think you can probably ignore her sister, to the best of your ability. Health care providers look to next of kin to make these decisions, absent a health care power of attorney. You are next of kin. If you and your children are in agreement I do not foresee a problem.See question
I had power of attorney for the family's affairs and my son and I signed a lease for 5 years. Our father recently passed away. We have decided to sell the home to my son but there some doubts as to the legality of selling to my son Please advise.
When you had power of attorney you had the obligation to act in your father's best interest. Giving your son a 5 year lease raises eyebrows as to whether that was in your father's best interest. I do not know if you are personal representative or trustee now, but selling to your son also raises eyebrows. It is legal to sell to your son, at fair market value. I also believe a title company will require your siblings to sign quit claim deeds, so you need them on board. You should hire an attorney.See question
The mother of my stepson, who is deceased, was 21, died intestate with land which requires probate in Florida. She sold the motorcycle, kept the money and signed the deceased son's name. We have proof of this. She is trying to become administra...
I assume she filed a petition for administration and sent your husband formal notice, then he objected to her appointment and filed his own petition. I think your husband has a very good chance of being appointed given the facts you have presented.See question
she is threatning me and sent me to jail once before for no reason and the judge knew she was making it up so he dropped the last charges and she is going through everything and i wanted to know if that is legall
I think you should move out, get your own place, and put in a change of address with the post office. Then she can't go through your mail. If your mother is trying to have you charged with a crime such that you end up in front of a judge, it's time to move.See question
