In a civil suit in Florida how many motions to dismiss can I file?

Asked over 2 years ago - Hollywood, FL

I have been served with a forclosure complaint. There is lack of validation, lack of acceleration, the plantiff is not the entitly which granted the loan and a request for legal fees which is contrary to various sections of the mortgage and note. Can I file a motion to dismiss on one of these items at a time and if not victorious on one continue to file the others one at a time. If the Judge gives me 20 days to answer the complaint after lossing a motion to dismiss can I still file another motion to dismiss?

    Answered . I would raise all meritorious grounds for dismissal in one motion. If judge orders you to answer I would answer.

    Answered . A motion to dismiss usually arises from whatever defects are apparent from the four corners of the complaint and its exhibits. Lack of Standing. Statute of Limitations. Failure to attach the agreement. Lack of subject matter jurisdiction in the chosen court. There are many, many other potential reasons a court might be required to (or have discretion to) dismiss a particular case.

    Use all of 'em you have, or lose 'em.
