Legal Answers
210 Questions Answered

Q. My husband made a sheriff report against me and the statement that he wrote was unturn. Please advise on how to handle
A: From a criminal perspective, if you were not arrested, then there's nothing for you to do. From a civil perspective, he may be gearing up to file a Petition for Injunction for Protection Against Domestic Violence. If he is successful in convincing a judge that he is in imminent fear for his life, a judge will issue a Temporary Order for Injunction for Protection Against Domestic Violence and you will have to leave your home and stay away from him until you have a chance to defend yourself in front of the judge, usually within 15 days. It would then be up to him to prove he is in fear for his life. I wish you good luck.
Q. How do I file for divorce and who has to come up with the money, the person filing? What does it cost to file?
A: Aside from hiring a lawyer, you could go to the courthouse and purchase a Dissolution of Marriage filing kit. It will have all of the documents needed along with instructions on how to file for divorce. As for the filing fee, the person who files the petition will be charged the filing fee which is approximately $409.00. There is also a Summons fee of $10.00 and a fee for service of process. If you qualify, you may have the fee waived as being indigent. I hope this helps. Good luck!
Q. Myself and my spouse are filing for divorce. Are we qualified for a Simplified Dissolution of Marriage in Marion County?
A: The process for filing a simplified dissolution of marriage can be relatively simple and quick. However, the following criteria must be met in order to be eligible for a simplified divorce filing: No minor children together and the wife is not pregnant The couple has agreed on how assets, debt and property will be divided No alimony being sought by either spouse You both are willing to give up your right to a trial and an appeal That said, the issue is not whether you have shared marital debt, but that you have both AGREED (emphasis added) on how the debt will be divided. With this in mind, I believe you qualify for a simplified dissolution of marriage. I hope this helps. Good luck.
Q. I live Florida. How long does it take to file divorce petition and get served?
A: Most dedicated attorneys can file a petition for dissolution of marriage and get it served thew same day. Good luck!
Q. Can a voluntary dismissal of a divorce petition be granted if my spouse filed an answer with the court?
A: A dismissal is not granted or denied. You just file a Notice of Voluntary Dismissal and the case will close so long as a counterpetition was not filed. If a counterpetition was filed, that should be dismissed in the same way. I hope this helps. Good luck.
Q. Filing for divorce, me and husband separated for 4 years. Newborn isn’t his. Can i ask for Zero child support?
A: The answer to your question is not so simple, you have a complex situation. What you will need to do is disestablish paternity with your husband and establish paternity with the child’s biological father. Once you establish paternity with the biological father, then you can avoid completing the child support guidelines. Without going through this process, a judge will not allow the divorce to go through. Good luck
Q. If married but home and property are only in my name does my wife have rights to it after I ask her to leave my home
A: Generally, any property, real or personal, that was acquired during the marriage is subject to equitable distribution. With this in mind, if you bought the home and property during the marriage, your spouse has an equitable claim to it. Generally, 50%. The fact that your wife was cheating on you is not relevant as Florida is a no-fault divorce state. I hope this helps. Good luck.
Q. If my ex is behind in His Alimony payments can he be forced to sell items to keep me from becoming homeless.
A: You should file a Motion for Contempt/Enforcement AND notice it for a hearing. The judge has many options to get you your money, one of which is for him to liquidate assets. I hope this helps. Good luck!
Q. I can’t afford to pay my alimony payment!
A: You should immediately file a Motion to Modify Alimony AND set it for a hearing. You will have to prove to the court's satisfaction that there has been a substantial change in circumstances, which in this case, is the fact that your sales and income have been cut in half. I believe you should hire a highly skilled attorney to assist you. Good luck.
