Ex was served on 5th with consent papers for my spouse to adopt my kids, we've had no response and don't expect too. Just wondering how long the process will take in this situation?
Generally it shouldn't take long if the other parent was properly served, but hopefully you are using an attorney and, if so, then you should direct your questions to them as they are familiar with any idiosyncrasies of your particular case that would affect the time frame you are looking at.
At this point, we don't know what your 'consent papers' consist of, whether consent is even required, or what kind of notices you have also served on your ex.See question
My son just graduated , I live in AR , He is 19 and not starting collage , what is the process to stop payment to his mother?
There is an affidavit process that you can use, but especially if your support is paid by income withholding it is often better to have the Court enter an order stating that your obligation to pay support has terminated and that you do not suffer any arrears.
If the other parent is cooperative, you and they can sign an Agreed Order and submit it to the Court.See question

You can be granted a divorce on the grounds of continuous separation, if you can't locate her you will need to file an Affidavit setting out the diligent efforts you've made to find her and then have a warning order published.
If she does not file a response within 30 days after the publication of the warning order, you can contact the Court to have a hearing scheduled (or some Judges will allow you to submit affidavits in uncontested divorces). You will also need a witness that can corroborate your residency and separation.See question

If you think she is in danger of abuse, you can encourage her to speak to someone such as a school counselor, etc.
You can also make a report to the Florida Child Abuse Hotline so that they can check into it:
My soon to be ex husband is saying he don't want my new partner of one year to say at weekends, I have two children 16 and 18. I pay all the bills including the mortgage, can he stop me having my new partner staying at weekends?
The Court can certainly order that you not have any partners spend the night while the children are there and, since you are not yet divorced, if you expose your children to your adulterous relationship against you in any custody proceedings even if there isn't a court order prohibiting it.
Being in a romantic relationship before you divorce your husband can cause you other problems as well so, in short, hold off on being involved with anyone else until after you are divorced.See question
I have been told that if my ex-husband is claimed as a dependent that I would not be getting his taxes. I see this as a loop hole to keep him from having to pay the child support
He will continue to owe the $61,000.00 in child support, plus any additional arrears that accrue, regardless of his tax situation -- and in fact with that much he is in serious risk of being incarcerated for his failure to pay support.
Of course if he doesn't receive an income tax refund there isn't a refund to intercept, but if he qualifies for his mother to claim him as dependent he probably won't receive a refund regardless of whether or not someone else claims him as a dependent.
You can pursue him, either by hiring an attorney or by going through the Office of Child Support Enforcement, for the child support. Sometimes going to jail helps people figure out where they can get some money to start paying their support obligations.See question
My cousin parents are both deceased now. My uncle had property in Arkansas and his daughter does not want it. My uncle had no wills at all. His daughter has been paying the property tax since his death. Now she does not want the property anymore,...
While she could technically just quit claim any interest she has in the property over to you, that would likely just cause problems and confusion for you later on down the road.
It would be better to go ahead and spend a little money now by hiring an attorney in the County in which the property is located to file the paperwork to ensure there is a clean chain of title than potentially get into a much more expensive situation years down the road.See question
My child was taken from the mother and placed into a group home I am wanting to get full custody and move her here with me. She has multiple child endangerment charges and I have none
You should consult with an attorney in the state in which the proceedings (appears to probably be a dependency-neglect type case) are being heard. You'll need to be entered as a party to that case, and will need an attorney that is not only familiar with the law of that state but is also licensed to practice in that State's courts.See question
A year ago I had major depression and as well as alcoholism. At that time, I had asked my parents for help with my teenage daughter. For insurance purposes, my parents asked for "temporary" guardianship. I had refused several time, even forced ...
You should file a petition with the Court to terminate the guardianship, and may also want to file a Revocation of Consent if the guardianship order indicates that the appointment of guardian was based on your consent.
What you need to show the Court in order to have the guardianship terminated depends on whether the appointment was based on your consent or because the Court found you to be an unfit parent. If it was based upon your consent, then there is a presumption in your favor as the natural parent, but if it was based upon a finding of unfitness then things will be more difficult.
Best to have an attorney review the guardianship order and any pleadings that were filed in that case so they can better advise you on your next steps.See question

There really isn't a way to answer your questions over an Internet posting, they are just too fact specific (and you really wouldn't want to get into them in a forum open to the public, anyway).
You mentioned that you had an attorney, at least previously. That attorney is going to have more familiarity with your circumstances and so I would suggest that you go back to them to address your questions.See question
