i got served papers from my local court becuase my sons grandma is trying to get custody. Once i write my response can i mail it to the court or do i have to take it there?
I agree with my colleague. You certainly may mail the answer to the Clerk of Court. Be mindful, however, that whatever you file with the Clerk must be provided to the other party, as well., so be sure that you not only make a copy of what you file for yourself, but also a copy for the other party.See question
My girlfriend and I got into a argument and her 12 year old son call 911. There was no physical contact between us. The DA dismissed the domestic violence. Is the no contact also dismissed?
The answer to your question is dependent on whether there was a separate Domestic Violence Injunction entered. If that type of Injunction was not entered and the no contact order was solely the result of the criminal case, which has now been dismissed, then the no contact order was also dismissed.See question
I want to have sole custody of my children. Right now it's shared with child support oders. His family keeps filling cps cases against me and they are finding nothing wrong with how i am with the children.
You are not entitled to a public defender in a custody suit between the two parents. If you are unable to afford an attorney and you meet the criteria, then you may be able to obtain legal assistance from either Bay Area Legal Services or Gulf Coast Legal Services, which have offices in Hillsborough County.See question
I have the papers from my 40lk provider and my dissolution of marriage. Just needing the QDRO wrote up to submit to the judge to sign.
There are local attorneys who prepare QDROs, as well as other providers that advertise. This is not an appropriate venue for a specific referral. You also might try the Florida Bar website or the Polk County Bar Association Lawyer referral.
Many attorneys who respond to questions on this site, offer free initial consultations. You can certainly inquire before scheduling an appointment as to the attorney's experience in the area.See question

While the facts that you recite are not that clear, it would appear that if your spouse paid off marital bills with his separate inheritance, he may be the one that would stand to lose in the sense that he will not be able to claim the same as being nonmarital once he has co-mingled the funds with the marital asset.

An essential fact needed to answer your question is the state in which the two of you last lived together as husband and wife. If that state was Florida, then you are fine to proceed here. If it was Ohio or some other state, then you can have your marriage dissolved here, but you will likely not be able to address issues of division of property and debts. Consult with an attorney here and in the state where you last lived together.See question
It was a temporary relief hearing
You may purchase a copy of the transcript from the court reporter. If you are the first to order the transcript, you will have to pay the "original" rate. If the attorney who hired the court reporter order a copy, then you would only have to pay the copy rate, which is less expensive.See question

In order to be successful, you will need to be success in providing specific evidence regarding the factors in Section 61.13 of the Florida Statutes. It will not be sufficient to give the judge an opinion, you will need facts. Lawyers are trained to find the needed facts and figure out how to present the facts to the judge. I suggest that you search out attorneys in your area and find an experienced family law attorney who can help you in this case.See question
