    It is common in Florida to include that a party maintain a life insurance policy in order to help secure the alimony or child support obligation. Therefore, if the party dies then the life insurance policy will pay in place of the child support or alimony.

    If neither party has an attorney it will be assigned to the Judge handling pro se (unrepresented) parties, which is very busy and handled by one Judge in Polk County. If either party has an attorney, it will depend a lot on which division your case is assigned. Each Judge maintains his /her calendar, so after your case is filed if that Judge has an opening for a short hearing, your attorney may be able to get you into court within one month. Generally, you are probably looking at a time...

    That really depends if you have decided that your marriage is definitely over. Have you considered marriage counseling, which I would suggest first before dissolving a 35 year marriage. Of course, you both have to be willing to attend counseling. If you have tried counseling or if it is not an option for other reasons I would suggest that you contact a family law attorney in your area. Although you do not have children, there are a lot of financial and property issues that could exist in a...

    It sounds like you are not sure if your gun is just missing or if it was stolen. If you believe that your gun was taken and sold without your permission then you should report it to your local law enforcement agency. However, you should understand that after law enforcement investigates they may charge your nephew with the theft of your gun if he did take your gun and pawn it without your permission. If you do not want your nephew charged with a crime, you may want to contact law enforcement,...

    I suggest that you consult with an attorney in your local area. In these tough economic times many attorneys are offering free consultations. Also, if you are not employed then you may qualify for the services of a Legal Aid organization in your area that provides either low cost or no cost legal assistance. If you contact the Dade County Bar Association or the Florida Bar Association they should be able to refer you to an attorney in your area.

  8. Should I seal my record?

    Based upon the information you provided you would answer "yes" to being charged. You would answer "no" if it asks if you were convicted since adjudication was withheld. If you have it sealed it may or may not show up depending upon who is running the background check. However, since you will be applying for a medical license with the State it will likely show up regardless of whether it is sealed. As you pointed out it is better not to come across dishonest.
