are the forms to file motion the same, where can I obtain them please???
No. You can have the time for a speedy trial expire (90 days for misdemeanor and 175 for felony) If that happens, the defendant can file a Notice of expiration of speedy trial. The court Must then have a hearing on the matter and set the case for trial all within 15 days. A demand for Speedy says that the defendant is ready for trial and the court then has a hearing and sets the matter for trial within 60 days. The demand can be filed prior to the speedy trial time noted above having expired.See question
i need a trial witin 60 days
You must file a Demand for Speedy Trial. This is a very technical area of the law. Filing the demand has other implications. Most importantly, it says that you are ready for trial. You should consult with an attorney before filing this motion.See question
I filed for divorce and my final hearing is on the 18th of july. I cannot go to the hearing on that date and would like to know what "Motion" form do I need to file to let them know or to ask them to move my final hearing to another date. Thank...
First try to coordinate with the other party. That way, your motion could be a joint motion, and the judge would be more likely to grant it.See question

Email notice is actually acceptable and will become a requirement in family law cases as of September first of this year. You can and should file a notice of unavailability and try to request a new date. Chances are that you wre served early in the case, and now the other attorney only needs to notify you in certain circumstances. This may be one of those times. However, the court time should always be coordinated. If it was not or no attempt to do so was made, you have a strong argument to get a new date. You can also call the other attorney to try to change the date.See question

Is it he same process as in a criminal trial ? is it done by jury or judge ? What happens ?
I agree with my coleagues. If this case stems from a criminal act, the state will seek restitution (ie ask you to pay damages to the other party.) If that happens, the other parties will not be allowed to collect twice.See question

She is entitled to everything you are entitled to. Florida does not place blame in a divorce case. The only exception is when one party is wasting marital assetts.See question

Most retainer agreements state that the initial retainer is not refundable. Take a look at your contract, first. The Florida Bar may be able to assist in contacting him, if your contract allows you to get a refund.See question
