    If your property is in Hillsborough County, the Clerk of Court Office may have an information package regarding unlawful detainer. It is very important in these situations to ensure you have your paperwork filed correctly and payments made to the court and HCSO, as one mistake could result in the case being dismissed and you will have to start over again. I reiterate Marshall's recommendation to seek advice from an attorney familiar with the law in this area if possible. The Clerk of Court...

    I think your question would get a better response in the "criminal defense" section. But, from back when I did practice criminal law, your friend would likely be eligible for the misdemeanor intervention program (MIP) or something to that effect. In which he would have to pay a fine, do some community service, etc. But, the benefit would be the State would drop the charge after he successfully completes the program. At least that is the way it was done in Tampa, a few years ago. Again, you...

    Polk County Clerk of Court has a good website for this information. Eviction forms are posted at – http://www.polkcountyclerk.net/subpage.aspx?id=536 and also you can see a listing of court fees (in the lower left side of the site). A word of caution in Florida evictions, landlord’s duty to provide notice to the tenant is strictly interpreted, you should consult with a local real estate attorney regarding this matter.

    I agree with the above attorneys’ analysis, but would like to add in a typical case depositions are taken under Florida Rule of Civil Procedure 1.310. This rule states, “After commencement of the action any party may take the testimony of any person, including a party, by deposition upon oral examination.” As these depositions are after “commencement of the action”, the lawsuit would have to have been filed before the taking of depositions. Of course I do not know the details of your...

  6. What are possible consequences for FL criminal practices act statute 772.11

    1 lawyer answer

    The Florida Civil Remedies for Criminal Practices Act has very few exemptions and it can be combined with other civil or criminal punishments, these facts combined with the ability for the award of attorney fees makes ignoring the demand a very dangerous proposition. I would strongly consider contacting an attorney who can review the details of this case with you before the expiration of the demand for payment. I have included a copy of 772.11 and a good article by Jeff Adelman regarding the...

    In your case generally, your mother’s estate has a duty of due care towards people who come into the house. If the estate failed to exercise reasonable care to prevent harm to you and you were legally on the property, the estate may be liable for any injury sustained due to your accident which occurred as a result of the estate’s negligence. The estate has a duty to use reasonable care in keeping and maintaining the premises in a reasonably safe condition and to warn of any concealed dangers...

    The driver's medical bills will likely be paid by PIP coverage (normally $10,000 limit) under your or his insurance policy. The physical damage to the car will be covered under the collision coverage of the policy. You should contact your insurance company and they can provide you with the details regarding the above types of coverage under your policy.
