We just got a contract from a Buyer interested in purchasing his home in Broward. He has homestead in this property. What are the chances that they will keep some of the Proceeds to cover that Judgment ($135k)
I agree generally with the prior answer. However, if the judgment is against the corporation AND the judgment hasn't been domesticated and recorded in Florida, there is virtually ZERO chance the judgment will encumber the proceeds of the sale of your client's homestead property.See question

"Interested Party" is a statutorily defined term. However, in order to receive notice (though you likely should have anyway) of proceedings, the safest method is to file an appearance (generally through counsel) in the proceeding.See question

There are no direct prohibitions on this type of activity. However, you will want to consult with your counsel (you do have counsel since all Florida PRs are required to have counsel if there are other beneficiaries involved) to avoid any appearance of self-dealing. Informing and receiving consent from the other beneficiaries is likely the absolute best avenue to take.See question
I've been contributing to a regular IRA account for many years but due to high medical bills I'm afraid I my lose all of my IRA savings. Can the state of Florida allow a hospital to take my IRA money to pay medical bills?
Your IRA is exempt from creditors' claims in the State of Florida under Fla. Stat. 121.131 and 222.21. You should consult a lawyer to discuss other creditor exemptions and how your assets may be protected from medical bills.See question

Undue influence litigation can be time consuming and last a long time. While it is difficult to assess whether your attorney is taking too long to bring this matter to resolution based on the information you've provided, there are options for bringing a case to final hearing. You should discuss a timeframe for bringing the matter to trial with your attorney. If he or she is unwilling to move the case to final trial, you may want to seek other counsel.See question

solely. My father passed away last year. He had a will leaving my mothers property to my sister and her child. Property had never been probated, but were trying to get it done asap. My sister is the executor over my fathers will. My mother had n...
The previous answer is incorrect. The mother's death in 2002 would've left the father a life estate with the remainder to the children. At father's death, his will would not apply to the homestead. Therefore, the mother's children would own the property in equal shares. A homestead determination needs to be entered for the mother's estate to place the home in her children's names.See question
If I work 28 days on , and 14 days off , how will the court or judge determine my child support amount ? Will the total premium due be based on a 4 week month , even though In not working 4 weeks every month ?
In a situtation such as yours, the Court should consider a rolling average for your income rather than a snapshot four week period. The best method is to annualize your income and then divide it by twelve months. You should consult with a family law attorney to ensure that your income is being properly calculated for support purposes.See question
