  • How do I appeal a decision on Injunction placed on me with false allegations.

    Over a 13 yr period my granddaughter's mother has been fighting with me and my family off and on. Committing vandalism at times that can't be proven. Using my credit to purchase stuff without my knowledge. Recently I opened a DCF case from a physi...

    I will reiteratee what others have stated: you should be represented by a lawyer who does appeals and who has some experience with injunctions. The longer you try to delay that the bigger the hole you will probably be in and the more it will cost you and probably the worse the final result. I'd suggest ou speak to some lawyers immediiately and hire one promptly.

    Not my specialty but withholding wages because you were in an accident while working sounds suspect to me. If subpoenaed (and I would be surprised if you weren't if the matter is not settled) you will have to be a witness. You would benefit from having counsel in this matter.

  • What does "deny eot for no consultation" mean in an Appeals case, and what could happen next, will the case be dismissed?

    Will’s Answer

    I agree that it sounds like the request for more time was denied because the party asking for it did not ask the other side whether they opposed it. Extensions are routinely granted in appeals, so whether this is the end probably depends on what the other side does.

    • Selected as best answer

    Without seeing what you have already (you just call it the arbitrator's "typed form"), it is difficult to answer. It sounds like you need to file a motion asking the court to enter an order enforcing the award or order entered by the arbitrator, and if the court won't enter that without a hearing, get it set for hearing. It also sounds like you should try to keep your communications with the opposing lawyer in writing. You will probably benefit from having your own lawyer in this matter.

    There is a provision in the statutes that some interpret to say they can get minimum damage of $200. See FS 772.11 You may wish to have counsel in this matter, in particular because of the possibility of criminal liability.

  • Do i have to make a decision at mediation?

    Going to mediation in regards to time sharing plan, do I have to agree or disagree before mediation is over or can i review the agreement at home before signing it? Other party is represented by lawyer, I am pro se.

    Will’s Answer

    As stated, you don't have to agree ever. It is not uncommon for an attorney to pull all offers off the table at the close of mediation. That does not mean they would not actually agree if two days later you told them you would accept the settlement offer they made at mediation. But as stated, the best course is to be represented at the mediation and try to get a fair settlement there.
