    Let me understand your situation: 1) your landlord collected your rent and then posted what would be a fraudulent 3 day notice? 2) your landlord did not give you the proper 3 day notice (meaning, providing you three full days notice - not including weekends? If so, you surely have rights and should speak with a Fort Lauderdale eviction attorney ASAP. You will surely have a defense to the eviction, and it is likely that your landlord will have to pay your attorney's fees. I had the same...

    You will need to file by publication in a paper as the previous attorney stated. It is not complicated. A family attorney will be able to do this for you.

    I agree with Sabina. It will not be easy to change from 50/50 (which is what court's prefer) to 60/40 unless there is a change in circumstances that was not anticipated before.

    I suggest you first contact the Judge assigned to you case by telephone and in writing. I then suggest you hire an attorney. I do not know any of the facts of your case; however, alimony is not automatic in Florida and is based on several factors, one of which is the length of your marriage. Many attorneys offer free consultations. Attached is a link to the Broward County Family Court Judges in case you don't have your judge's telephone number handy.

    I agree. Contact the police right away and ask that they prosecute. I am sure you have his name right? Then, take that report to your insurance company. You may also want to contact the credit bureaus and place fraud alerts. I think that if you contact one and issue fraud alerts since he stole your DL, SSN, credit cards, etc., that the other will also issue fraud alerts and then make sure to monitor your credit.

    I am not an education attorney, however, Florida Law (Florida Statute Section 1003.21) states that all children who are either six years of age, who will be six years old by February 1 of any school year, or who are older than six years of age but who have not attained the age of 16 years, must attend school regularly during the entire school term. A student who attains the age of 16 years during the school year is not subject to compulsory attendance beyond the date of which the student...

    Your attorney cannot settle a case without your consent. If it is your wish to not accept a settlement offer and go to trial, that is your decision. Your attorney should keep you informed of all settlement offers during your case. I agree, there is never a sure thing when it comes to trial. Many cases are settled at mediation - If you haven't gone yet to mediation, in Florida, you will have to. You will learn a great deal about the strength of your case and the defendant's case as well during...

  8. Can I change what I initially requested in my motion at the hearing for appointment of a psychologist for my child?

    I agree. You need to speak with an attorney to go over your options and so a plan can be developed so you may see your son. An attorney representing you would likely ask for the court to grant temporary relief so that you may have time-sharing prior to a final hearing, which may be a long time away.

    I agree, your nephew needs to speak to an attorney where he lives. I am not sure if he lives in Florida or out-of-state. Each state's divorce laws are different. In Florida, there is a process to follow regarding service via publication.

    I agree with the others. I recommend that you have an experienced attorney attend the hearing with you so he may cross examine your husband, rather than you, which may be very uncomfortable with you. You should look into also hiring a family law attorney to litigate your divorce, if you are also thinking about a divorce. That family law attorney will also be able to assist you with the restraining order.
