My sons mother works on the weekends and I sometimes but now that were no longer together she feels that its my obligation to get my son every weekend, keep in mind he's in daycare through the week and I or her mother picks him up from daycare unt...
Good afternoon. However, for purposes of this posting the answer if technically "NO," but I caution you on doing so. It appears you are not court ordered to pay chid support and in addition have no court ordered visitation. Therefore, you have no obligation to do anything. The mother has 100% rights to the child until you establish them in a court (which does not have to be adversarial and can be done rather quickly). In the interim, I would exercise timesharing as often as you both can agree. This not only develops a strong relationship with your son, but it also sets the status-quo in the event a formal agreement needs to be finalized by the court. Bottom line, even if everyone is playing somewhat nice, you, as the father, have no rights legally until you petition for them. Hope this helps.See question
Hi I'm in Jacksonville Florida I recently received al letter from JHA that I will be responsible for my rent come January 2017. I requested for a hearing with Jacksonville housing authority hearing officer and he terminated me off the program afte...
I am sorry to hear about your situation. Section 8 vouchers are administrative in nature, and I believe you can appeal the termination of your voucher. It is separate from a standard landlord/tenant situation. I advise going to Jacksonville Area Legal Aid for assistance.See question
My ex was given supervised visitation, and I was awarded sole parental responsibility, until he completes parenting plan, which that was years ago, and he hasn't done any of it. When applying for a passport, it states that I don't need his appro...
Yes, this is referring to sole parental responsibility, which it appears you have.See question
We reached an agreement during mediation however we have not been to court yet to get it signed off on by the judge and my ex is already not complying with mediation agreements what can I do
Thank you for posing this question. A mediation agreement is a binding contract, and absent fraud or duress, it will likely be entered by the Court as a Consent Final Judgment. It is extremely difficult to set aside a voluntarily executed mediation agreement.See question
My ex boyfriend and I are co-signers on each others car. However he has failed to keep up with payments on his car which is affecting my credit and now I cant refinance my car because his car is bringing down my credit. Also his license is now sus...
Unfortunately you would need to refinance the car in your name, or in the same of you and another party, in order to remove his name off of the debt.

You may have cause to terminate the lease and demand compensation, however, an attorney would need to sit down with you and adequately review the lease and fact scenario.
She is calling thirty times a day, sitting outside my place in her car for hours, and then knocking on my door. Rent is three weeks late. I have not been served with any eviction papers. Can I call the police and say I am being harassed?
In addition, it sounds like your landlord needs to be placed on notice of her practices. Here is the caveat, you are 3 weeks behind in rent, so I'd almost bet that an eviction will be forthcoming.
We are both working employees in construction corporation and after being confronted with missing funds he is trying to fire me. We have no by laws or other contracts. What are my options?
Are you likewise an owner (shareholder) in the company? If not, then you can be hired and fired at will, unless it falls under state and federal protected classes (race, creed, sex, age, etc).
I had mediation and came to an agree with about visitation for my child which my attorney was present. However he has not been doing a great job and I recently found out he doesnt really practice in family law. The other party has filed a contempt...
Think of the mediated agreement as a binding contract between the parties. Generally speaking, it is hard to get the mediated agreement thrown out (Motion to Set Aside Mediated Agreement), absent fraud, duress, etc., and then go straight to a final hearing.
If you are following the agreement, then you should not be in contempt.
I would speak to an attorney as soon as possible. It sounds like the agreement needs to be incorporated into a Final Judgment first, and then everyone can go back and battle out contempt motions later.
I am a single parent with 2 kids living with me. I have 2 other kids I just found out I have. Will the court ignore the fact I have 2 kids in considering how much I pay?
Child support is determined by your income and the number of children you have with the other parent. Does not matter if you have other children from another relationship.
