I was married in 2015 and I just received divorce summons. We have non children together or properties. What do I do? Do I need to respond to the petition? Do I wait for the 20days? Please help!
Yes, you definitely have to respond to the Petition. You do not have to wait for the 20th day to respond; however, you do have to respond by the 20th day in order to avoid having a default entered against you. Your response will depend on what the Petition is alleging and other factors that are better discussed with an attorney.

I am a single mother. We currently live in FL and there is NO custody/visitation order in place. We do have a pending child support order but that is it. I would like to relocate to California for better job opportunities and I have more support f...
The answer to this question depends on what type of action the pending child support order is in. In a paternity action, where a timesharing schedule has been requested and is pending, the Florida relocation statute is applicable. If it's an administrative proceeding where the Department of Revenue is establishing child support, then there's no jurisdiction to establish timesharing and the Florida relocation statute is inapplicable.
I highly recommend that you consult with an attorney prior to relocating to determine whether you are required to comply with the Florida relocation statute. If you are required to comply with it and you fail to do so, you could be ordered to return the child.

I understand that you are specialized in statue of limitations law... My mother already Sandra R. Ribeiro already served her time, you represented my father Adrian Suazo case 562013CF001020B wich is still open in Saint Lucie County... He left o...
It appears that you are directing this question at a specific attorney (the one that represented your father), so you may want to contact him/her directly. You can find their information on The Florida Bar website. It's also not clear what your question is. You may want to contact an attorney in your area for a consultation regarding your family's situation. Good luck!See question
My husband has a repo on his credit reports which is the biggest issue.
You haven't provided sufficient information. Is he disputing that the information reported on his credit report related to the auto repossession is inaccurate or erroneous? If so, he can dispute the inaccurate or erroneous information with the credit reporting agencies. If the information is correct, the auto repossession can stay on his credit report for up to seven years after the original delinquency date.

I have already been deposed once and now they want to depose me again. I do not want to go. Can I file an objection.
As my fellow colleagues have already responded, the other party is entitled to take your deposition again. They may have not concluded your first deposition, in which case they are entitled to conclude it or there may be another reason they want to depose you again. Depending on the specific circumstances of your case, you may have a valid reason to support your objection, in which case you can file a motion for protective order; however, keep in mind that “I do not want to go.” is not going to be sufficient for the court to rule in your favor.

I filed for divorce (uncontested, my wife and I agreed on everything and going for a very smooth divorce) and I am waiting for the court ruling on the divorce. I am planning to remarry as soon as the divorce is finalized. Can I do the premarital ...
You mentioned that you are waiting on the "court ruling on the divorce." If you don't already have a pending final hearing date, make sure to contact the Judge's JA, so you can schedule the final hearing, otherwise the court won't know you are ready to have your Final Judgment entered.
You may also take the premartial course while you're waiting on entry of the Final Judgment.
As the other attorney mentioned, make sure you bring a certified copy of your Final Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage with you if you apply for the marriage license the same day or shortly thereafter, in the event its not reflected on the docket right away.

In the State of Florida, every child is entitled to receive support from both parents. Your 9-month old is no exception. If you want to establish child support for your baby, you can hire a private attorney to represent you (if you can afford to) or you can contact the Child Support Enforcement Division of the Miami-Dade County's State Attorney's Office (which may take a bit longer). With regard to appearing in court, you may be required to be present depending on the type of hearing,

he is abusive verbally and he said to get house his life. he is cheating
I agree with my colleagues. You need to consult with an attorney and have the prenup reviewed. You'll also be entitled to child support for the twins once they are born.

I am married with two children and I filed for a default divorce since my wife refuses to cooperate. The court is asking for proof of her income to calculate child support but she refuses to submit any paperwork or show to the hearings. Can I stil...
I'm not sure what you mean by a default divorce, but child support is calculated the same in any type of divorce (contested v. uncontested). Have you or your attorney filed the appropriate motions and/or requests to try and get her to produce documents? If she refuses to submit any documents income can be imputed to her. Timesharing also impacts child support and needs to be addressed.

Broward & Miami-Dade Family Law Attorney
Im married to a police officer for 4 years and I have a son from a previous relationship.
I agree with Attorney Gutin. This is a very broad question. If the two of you do not have any children, then your divorce will be limited to equitable distribution (division of all marital assets & liabilities). However, you should contact a local attorney in your area to further discuss the specific facts of your case. Try to find an attorney that offers free consultations.See question
