My ex husband won't pay for special expenses for our daughter mandated by divorce decree. What is best way of making him do this.
The best way to make him do it is to file a Motion for Contempt. The Broward County Bar Association has a low cost legal program. I think it's $50 per hour. Good luck.See question

You need to go see an attorney(s) in person and hire one. She is entitled to equitable distribution. The starting point of equitable distribution is 50% of what was accumulated during the marriage. It is marital regardless of the fact it is titled only in your name, that includes the 401K and stock.See question
My father died without a will and his death benefit is not setup to pay to an individual. The death benefit is $10k and we are pretty sure he had more debt than assets (including the death benefit). We have no disagreement on what should happen wi...
I am so sorry for your loss of your father. The County option is cheaper. Regardless of whether your father had more debts than assets attorney's fees and costs, personal representative fees and reimbursement for funeral expenses up to $6,000 are the highest priority of claims and they get paid first. You do not need to worry that your father's other creditors will get the money before you get reimbursed. Hire an attorney, probate the estate.See question
I am listed on my mother's will, and I recently changed my name. However, the will still reflects my old name. How do I amend the will? Must I at all? A codicil? Those two witness... can they be anyone? I have access to both the will and a ...
I don't foresee this being a problem. When the time comes and you either petition to be the personal representative or you are a beneficiary, for clarity, I would refer to you as Mary Jones f/k/a (formerly known as) Mary Smith.See question
I am the executor on my fathers will who passed. My brother is a beneficiary. He is trying to take over the sale of the house. Is he able to do this, since I am the executor? Is a lawyer needed to execute the sale and if so what kind? Is going t...
I agree with both prior attorneys. Being the executor is meaningless without a court order giving you power. I have no idea how your brother is going to take over the sale of the house, unless he is petitioning for probate. You need to hire a lawyer to probate your father's estate to sell the house.See question
I have full custody of my son. He has not seen his mother in 3 years. It was recommended by the family therapist that he not have contact with her. I have always encouraged it on his terms, but she was abusive and he refuses. Now that he is 18 he ...
Yes, you can block her. You have no obligation to her.See question
My child doesn't have a father so how can I be sure he will go to my mother in case I should die
I agree with Attorney Feuerstein but would add, in your situation I specifically create a trust, because minors can't inherit very much money without a guardianship. A guardianship is expensive and cumbersome. You may not have very much money now, but it is possible, if you die tragically in an accident that was not your fault, your estate could be very valuable. I create the trust for that reason, so the money can be separated from the child, payable at the discretion of the trustee so the child is not financially desirable to the absent parent. Estate planning is very important though you always hope you never have to use your estate plan until your child is a senior citizen. Good luck.See question
I fIle a injunction befor it got a approve I drop the temapary and later down the road other inncedents happen and the keep denying me so what happen if I keep asking but he hasn't put his hand on me he just don't leave my home
I agree with Attorney Tischhauser but would add if you want to get him out of your house you either file an eviction (if he pays rent) or an unlawful detainer action (if he is a guest who has overstayed his welcome).See question
Im wondering what I can do to be able to discuss my daughters schooling since my ex hasnt listed me on any list with any schools..Therefore, they arent able to tell me anything. If I was to get a copy of her births certificate would that be enough...
Only if Emily's father has an Order Determining Paternity entered in his favor or was maried to Emily's mother at the time of her birth. The unmarried mother of a child has ALL the rights until an Order Determining Paternity is entered. If all you have is your name on a birth certicate, that is not enough. If you want rights, file a paternity action. Rights bring responsibilities.See question
I'm in a custody battle never married. He has a lawyer I do not. His lawyer has filed something I don't understand. No one is returning my emails or my calls to their office for clarification of the matter.
I believe it means the hearing has been cancelled. If he set it he has the right to cancel it. If you, or the court, set it he does not have the right to cancel it.See question
