    You would need to file a Supplemental Petition for Modification. You will have to show the court a substantial change in circumstances and that the modification is in the child's best interests. Contact a local experienced family law attorney to discuss your case.

    Joseph’s Answer

    There are a lot of issues raised in you question. The first is jurisdiction. If you were divorced in Florida, you may have jurisdiction here. If not, jurisdiction may lie in Georgia or some other state (depending on where you were divorced). Contact an experienced local family law attorney to discuss your case. More facts re needed to advise you how to proceed.

  • My soon to be ex husband left, and out of state. Am I awarded full custody with this happening?

    Soon to be ex husband left back to Ny, I have a almost three year old boy. I want full custody what are my chances of me getting it?

    Joseph’s Answer

    Florida does not use the term "custody" anymore. I assume that you would like your son to remain in Florida with you. Your question is impossible to answer in a forum like this, and with the limited facts in your question. Consult with a local experienced family law attorney.

  • Is being in solitary in prison a reason to appeal a default?

    My ex did not respond to a petition for divorce with a child and he claims he defaulted because he was wrongly put in 'the hole' and therefore could not answer. Does that make any sense?

    Joseph’s Answer

    As my colleagues have said, a default is pretty easy to set aside, especially in a family law case. Even in a default case, the other side may still be heard, and the best interests of the children are the most important issue. Good luck.
