    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...

    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...

    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....

  9. I am trying to get supervised visits for my daughter. Her father has skitzophrenia, and was baker acted 4 times in 3 months.

    You should call or email your lawyer and ask him or her what is going on. From what you have stated, if the father said all of those things under oath at a deposition, it would sound as if you have more than enough to justify supervised contact for him with your daughter, and that it would probably be best if this took place at a facility where people are trained to adequately supervise potentially high-risk situations, as opposed to occuring in someone's home. Regardless, you definitely need...

    From what you have stated, it sounds as if you may potentially have grounds to file for a modification of whatever timesharing or custodial arrangement that is currently court ordered. "Abandonment" would not play a factor though, only whatever is in the minor child's best interest. However, much more information would need to be known in order to fully answer your questions and advise you as to your potential rights, options and/or likely outcomes. You should consult with an attorney in order...
