Summary

I am a trial lawyer with a boutique practice that helps people. My Firm concentrates in family law – Divorce, Paternity, Custody, and Prenuptial Agreements – consumer bankruptcy and real estate law, Foreclosure Defense and other real estate litigation - we have a title agency, engage in short sale negotiations --- I have highly skilled attorneys in each area --- we work together as a team. We help our Clients navigate a difficult, challenging, often uncertain process and assist them in achieving the best possible results. What’s unique about my practice is that I can assist people in all aspects of their personal and financial troubles from aggressively pursuing a divorce, to defending a foreclosure, short selling a property, bankruptcy and assisting them in rebuilding their credit. Unlike most law firms, we offer all of these services under one roof.

Legal Answers
195 Questions Answered

Q. Can I file changes to my parenting plan here? My divorce was final in Washington state. Neither of us live in Washington
A: It depends where the child(ren) are domiciled. If the children are domiciled in Florida, Yes. You will need to domesticate the WA court order in the Florida court first. Then, you can go in to modify the parenting plan. If the child(ren) are domiciled in Canada, you will have to do the same thing, but in a Canadian court. I hope this helps, Good Luck!
Q. Hello, I live in Cape Canaveral and need a pro bono divorce lawyer, how do i go about it? It's urgent.
A: You should contact Legal Aid of Brevard County to assist you on a pro bono basis. Good luck.
Q. Can a mother with custody of a child prevent family any & all visitation/contact with cousins?
A: Unfortunately, it is allowed. Under the Florida Constitution, a parent has a right to privacy to raise his or her child as they see fit. That is, even if it were a grandparent, the parent can prevent a grandparent from seeing their grandchild. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news...Good luck.
Q. Hello i am currently married with my wife of 2 years. And i am in the military and undergoing a divorce.
A: The short answer to your question is yes, as Florida is an equitable distribution state, you get to keep the house as it is premarital. However, as attorney Lieber alluded to, your wife would be entitled to one-half of any appreciation that may have accrued during the two years of your marriage. I hope this helps. Good luck.
Q. Good evening, My wife left me one week after receiving her 10 years green card, and one month after coming to the US.
A: As Florida is a "No Fault" divorce state, you cannot stop her. With this in mind, don't fight it because the only people that will benefit from this are the lawyers. I'm sorry this has happened to you, good luck.
Q. It's been 3 months since my divorce trial. All was decided, but I have not heard anything from my attorney. What to do
A: You should probably hire a different attorney, a skilled and professional attorney, to pick-up the pieces. Do not look for an attorney based on price. Once you start price shopping, this is what happens. I believe Kurt Vonnegut said it best, “In this world, you get what you pay for.” Get yourself a good attorney to get this completed. The Florida court system is not that backed up where your attorney does not do his or her job. Good luck.
Q. My ex wife was ordered to return $4000 that she took from our joint savings in our divorce but never payed it back.
A: File a Motion for Contempt / Enforcement AND notice it for a hearing. Good luck!
Q. I have processed papers for a divorce but have not served wife. Can she still file and serve me?
A: She could, but it does not matter. It does not matter who files first. It is not a race to the courthouse. If it just so happens two cases are filed, the judge will most likely consolidate the two cases into one. Good luck.
Q. Is there a statue of limitations of time on a divorce decree? Ex owes me 40k, in the settlement, haven’t seen a penny.
A: You must contact an attorney in Georgia. Good luck.
