    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...

    From what you have stated, it sounds as if you may have legitimate grounds for a modification of the currently ordered timesharing. Make sure you save all voicemails and emails / text messages, as they are admissible in court and may be necessary in order to prove your case. You should consult with an attorney immediately in order to best protect your fiancée's rights and her child's safety.

    You can open whatever accounts you want or need to in order to be able to help take care of yourself. You should consult with an attorney immediately, as from what you have stated, it sounds as if you are in a very abusive and controlling relationship. You can also seek help from a local women's shelter if necessary.

    Sounds like what you have done is filed a motion for something. Just filing a motion doesn't do anything. Judge's don't "answer" motions. They make rulings on motions after hearing argument from both sides at a scheduled Hearing date and time. You need to call the judge's judicial assistant (you should be able to get the phone number by calling the Family Law Clerk of Court) and see when the judge has available hearing times, making sure you allow enough time for your matter to be heard....

    Normally, you wouldn't be responsible for paying her the balance of a loan that has been satisfied. However, it depends on the wording of the settlement agreement. You should have your agreement and final judgment reviewed by an attorney before agreeing to anything or taking further action.

    I understand that it is an inconvenience and very annoying to you to have to do this, and yes, if you took it to court a judge probably would not agree to his choice of exchange locations; however, without more, it really would be a waste of your money to try file an enforcement action over something that is this relatively minor (as compared to some issues that others deal with). My suggestion at this point would be to just deal with it until and unless there are other issues that also need to...

    In Florida, child support ends at either 18 or when the child graduates high school if they've already turned 18, but in no event past 19 years of age. There is no obligation in Florida to continue to pay child support once the child emancipates, even if they are attending college (unless there was an agreement or court order entered previously which provided for this).

    A lot depends on the language in whatever order was entered that gave your ex exclusive temporary custody. The best thing for you to do is to consult with an attorney or have an attorney review the existing order so that they can properly advise you on your potential rights and options.

    You shouldn't sign a quit claim deed as long as your name is still on the mortgage. Otherwise, you will still be financially responsible for the mortgage, but have no legal interest in the property itself. You should consult with an attorney before you sign anything or agree to anything in order to best protect yourself and your interests.
