    Yes, you can potentially receive alimony with a 7 year marriage, especially if you have physical conditions that have arisen during the marriage that make it impossible for you to work. You need to consult with an experienced attorney in order to best determine your potential rights and options. In the meantime, detailed answers to many frequently asked questions regarding divorce, custody, visitation, child support, alimony, paternity and other Family Law matters are located on my website...

    If your "Husband" was still legally married at the time of your marriage, then your marriage is null and void in all States. You need to apply for an annulment to get an order annulling your marriage. Or, alternatively, he can finalize his divorce that I assume is pending and then you can get re-married.

    Typically, it is always much easier to get a divorce than an annulment. You can only get an annulment if there was some sort of major fraud or deception involved. A divorce can be filed simply because you no longer want to be married. Check with your local courthouse to see if they have a self help department that sells divorce forms. Otherwise, you may want to consult with an attorney to assist you in properly finalizing things.

    You need to file legal action immediately. I presume that because she is your ex, you have some sort of court order that pertains to parental responsibility and visitation or timesharing. If so, she is required to comply with the relocation statute, give you notice of her intent to relocate (in writing) and obtain either your consent or prior court approval PRIOR to moving. If she failed to do so, then you need to act immediately. The likelihood of your success depends on how long ago she left....

    I would strongly advise against signing these papers, as once he agrees to only every other weekend, he will not be entitled to anything else. Verbal agreements are not enforceable. Additionally, these types of negotiations are inappropriate. He should consult with and retain an attorney to assist him in this process.

    That is just downright foolish and bordering on insanity. Why on earth would he even go through with the ceremony?? He does not "have" to go through with the ceremony, and it is advisable that he does not. Why would he even pretend to marry someone who is threatening him? Absolutely ridiculous.

    Whether or not you have to pay her alimony depends on many factors, and you haven't given enough information to answer this question (and probably wouldn't be able to in this forum anyway). As for dividing everything else, anything that was acquired during the marriage, whether a debt or asset, is most likely considered "marital" and subject to division between you two. You should consult with an attorney in order to best determine your potential rights and options, especially with it being...

    No, he won't automatically get "custody or visitation". He would have to file a separate legal action in order to obtain that. All CSE establishes is paternity and child support.

    Based on the facts you have stated, it would appear that you most likely have an entitlement to some sort of alimony or spousal support. You also would be entitled to child support, half of any retirement accumulated during the marriage, and half of any and all other assets, regardless of whose name they are in. And yes, it is strongly suggested that you consult with and retain an attorney to assist you in this matter and properly determine your potential rights and options under Florida law....
