    Typically in the agreement it states to pay a percentage of co pays. You may have a defense if the agreement has a clause that she needs to exchange those with you within thirty days from the time they are incurred. Law office of Kathy C.

    You need to file with the court for paternity and seek a time sharing schedule. The longer time goes on the longer and more difficult it will be for you to get more time sharing with the children. If she is endangering the children, the courts need to know about this ASAP.

    You definately need a divorce lawyer. Be aware the since you filed the affidavit of support in the immigration proceeding, he could use that against you and prevail in federal court to get support. Its a good thing that he is well off and that is what will need to be proven. It does not matter if he is local, you can still get the divorce here provided you have been a resident of florida for 6 months. Kathy C.

    It depends on what letter you received. If there is an option to pay you should do so immediately. From your information, it may be a question of whether your mother is collecting state aid for your child. If she is getting any benefits, she may not be able to waive the support obligations.

    Did the Father move out of the state or is it just vacation. If you have a court order that specified no out of state travel, then he can be held in contempt. You should consult an attorney on this matter. Kathy C.

    Pursuant to Florida Statue 61.075 - assets acquired during the marriage will be divided 50/50; Be careful to note, that if you had an asset prior to the marriage, it may still be non-marital if it was not commingled or placed into joint names.

    It is best if you file a Motion for temporary modification of the child support. You need to get this done ASAP since the Motion is retroactive to the date of filing. That is you can get a reduction of support from the date you file the motion if the hearing is schedule for sometime in the future. Kathy C.

    Well, its pretty much like the other lawyers said. You need to file the Motion to establish a timesharing schedule. Further since the law changed in 2008 you will need a parenting plan. The form for the parenting plan can be located online at www.flcourts.org under the family law forms section. This is what you need in place since the mother is unwilling to cooperate with you. You will need to serve her with the Motion, so you need to know where she works to have her served. Kathy C....

    Well, depending on how many times she has done this to you the penalties will increase. The Court could hold her in contempt of court and fine her with your attorney's fees and costs associated with the botched visitation. You would want to make sure that you have documented that you designated the dates you were coming to florida and if she actually consents ( not sure if you get this from your question) and then renegs on the agreement. That woudl be ideal for court. You have a long road...
