    You will have to send a copy of the Income Deduction Order to her new employer and send it certified mail/return receipt requested so that you have proof that it was received. You also mentioned that she is to pay for health insurance, half of the medical expenses and half of the daycare expense. I assume this is in your marital settlement agreement and/or final judgment that she is to do so. If she is not doing this, your only option is to proceed with a motion to enforce the final judgment...

    Was the requirement for him to sign a Quit Claim Deed for these properties included in your Final Judgment? If so, you can file a Motion to Enforce the provision, unless your Final Judgment contains special language conveying the properties to you automatically, and if so, then the Final Judgment would have to be filed in Official Records in the file tor each of those properties.

    In order to get your child support back on track the proper pleadings must be filed with the court and a hearing needs to be scheduled asap. At that point, all arrearages owed may be collected and if he has steady income, then an income deduction order can be ordered so that this doesn't happen again.

    The answer to the question is that it depends. First, you need to know that there is civil domestic violence and there is criminal domestic violence and these are treated differently, so the answer would depend on which it is in your case. If there is evidence of civil domestic violence or child abuse or there is an injunction for protection against domestic violence determined in a civil court, then this may be considered by the court as detrimental to the child. It is one of the factors...

    I agree with Eric. You cannot just terminate your parental rights to avoid paying child support. If the father is married and his wife wants to adopt your child, in short you can consent and thereafter a Final Judgment will be entered. If you have an order to pay child support prior to the Final Judgment being entered and you have an arrearage on the child support payments, then you will still be responsible for that arrearage. After the Final Judgment is entered you will no longer be...

    I agree with the answer provided by Mr. Lampert. As to serving the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage, If you do not know where your wife is presently living, then a diligent search is required in the state where her last known address is located. If she can be located, then she would have to be served personally with the Petition by process server. If not, then an Affidavit of Diligent search must be filed with the Court. It would be best to hire an attorney to help you with all aspects...

    This question is difficult to answer without actually seeing the language in your Final Judgment (FJ) and Marital Settlement Agreement (MSA). You write, "Our settlement states that he has exclusive rights to sell, he must maintain the property, pay taxes, utilities and insurance." We would need to know if there is a time frame for the sale or whether this issue is open-ended allowing him to sell at any time. Furthermore, we would need to know if you are entitled to equity at the time of the...

    In a divorce, one of the more difficult areas for divorce attorneys may be determining the distribution of the parties' assets. First it must be determined what assets are non-marital. Normally, if an asset is purchased prior to the marriage then it would be considered premarital property and the party who purchased it prior to the marriage will receive it, except as stated in Fla. Statute § 61.075 (6)(a)1.b.: "The enhancement in value and appreciation of non-marital assets resulting either...

    If the father has hired an attorney then you can expect to be personally served (by process server) after your child is born with a Petition to Determine Paternity and Related Relief. You will then have 20 days to respond. If you would like, contact our office for a free initial consultation to discuss your situation and we can inform you then of your options as to timesharing and child support if a Petition is filed. I wish you the best! Lynette

    If you qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you will be able to fully discharge this debt. You may or may not qualify for a Chapter 7 and depending on your situation, you may want to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Even if you qualify for a Chapter 7, the value of your assets is also a consideration as to whether you want to file. I agree that the Lack of Prosecution Notice is probably because the creditor failed to proceed with their case within a certain amount of time. You would not...
