  • Can I sell a house in Florida after an order of default?

    Defaulted mortgage is 300 but home value is 500 (miami beach condo) Realtor says I can sell and keep the difference even if there is an order of default.

    Christopher’s Answer

    You can sell it any time before it is sold at a foreclosure Auction. Even if there is a Default or a Default judgment entered. And you can keep all proceeds over and above what the pay off of the mortgage is- assuming there are no other liens to satisfy.

    Sit down with a local attorney to look at your judgment and sentence- you may have to pay him or her for that hour or so, but it will be worth it. There are many attorneys in Citrus- Hernando-Pasco that are capable. Feel free to call my office and set something up as well.

    Best of luck.

  • If a person is incarcerated for 11 months and is sentenced to 2 years will this count towards that. also if the state is

    offering 2 years in 2 years probation what would be a good counter

    Christopher’s Answer

    I agree that you probably wont get much advice on a counter offer in this forum without being able to look at your specific case- so ask your attorney. The time that has been spent in custody, if it was spent in on this particular case, should be applied to the total sentence as credit for time served, just make sure that is announced specifically on the record to be 100% sure.

  • My husband is accused of robbery but the day they said this robbery took place he was already in jail what to do

    What can I do to help him

    Christopher’s Answer

    Hire a criminal defense attorney to review the information you have to prove that he has an alibi.... that he was in Jail when the offense allegedly occurred. That attorney should take the necessary steps with the State Attorneys Office or the court to either have the charges dropped, dismissed, or not filed at all. If you c an not hire a private attorney you need to get the information to your husband's public defender, if appointed. Either way, communicate!

    Christopher’s Answer

    It may still be possible to stay in your home. It is also possible that the lawyer you saw had it right and you will eventually lose your home. There is just not enough info here to really give you a good analysis. You should see more attorneys and show them the documents filed in your lawsuit. If the right angles are taken you may be able to settle the case with a permanent modification through the courts, or even a chapter 13 bankruptcy. I do practice this in New Port Richey and offer free consultations. I wish you the best of luck.

    Christopher’s Answer

    Depending on the judge and the prosecutor, the maximum penalty appears to be 180 days in county jail. I do not think that you would actually be sentenced to that maximum, but it is possible, particularly depending on why you missed the meeting in the first place. If the probation officer actually violated you for this, then you could hire an attorney to negotiate with the state to try and achieve an early resolution with favorable terms for you. If you do not immediately hire an attorney, show up at the first court date and see what the state or judge is offering as your punishment at that time, if it is anything but a reinstatement, you probably want to plea not guilty, then obtain the services of an attorney. In either event, I would continue to make your probation payments for cost of supervision and court costs and fines, as well as continue to go to any court ordered classes. Try to finish all of the conditions of probation before you go to court for the violation. Most attorneys including my firm offer free consultations for these matters. It wouldn't hurt you to speak to one.
