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
152 Questions Answered

Q. How do I finalize a divorce if everything is complete and my ex wife will not sign the financial affidavit?
A: First of all, Florida does not recognize legal separation; you are either married or you're not. Next, file a Motion to Compel Wife to File her Financial Affidavit and set it for a UMC hearing ASAP. Good luck.
Q. I bought a condo in Florida before I was married. Once married, I placed his name on the deed.
A: You generously gave your spouse a very nice gift. As a result, the home is considered part of the marital estate subject equitable distribution. Meaning, (s)he would be entitled to half the value of the home.
Q. My wife has left with our 3 children, 4 times w/o notice or answering phone for weeks, this time she left state. Legal?
A: I do not agree. You should go into court and file an Emergency Motion for Pick Order to bring the children back. You should talk to a lawyer. Good luck.
Q. i have been seperated since oct 2017. We were married in ga in 2009. I now live in Fl. Looking to file divorce.
A: You should consult with a Florida attorney. As you and your children have been in Florida for at least 6 months, Florida has jurisdiction over both you and your children, therefore, more likely than not, the divorce must be filed in Florida. Good luck.
Q. Ex & I currently have 50/50 custody. Children ages 6 & 9 don't want to live with him due to verbal abuse. Options?
A: You may want to consider filing an emergency / urgent motion to suspend time-sharing. Please consult an attorney ASAP. Good luck.
Q. Does Florida Statute 787.03 (Interference with Custody) apply to marital situations?
A: File an Emergency Motion for Pick-up Order.
Q. We've agreed for an uncontested divorce, however she lives in a foreign country. How does she get served the notice?
A: You should prepare and have her sign, as part of the divorce paperwork, a Waiver of Service. That would satisfy the service requirement. Good luck.
Q. Is there a temp order that can be filed for time sharing untik the actual divorce. My wife keeps my child from me and it
A: Yes, you should file a Motion for a temporary timesharing order. Don't forget to notice it for a hearing. Simply filing the motion will get you nothing. Good luck.
Q. I was divorced in 2010 in the state of MN. I now live in Florida and have a post divorce issue. What state law do I use
A: As you were divorced in MN, MN law will govern the MN court order whether in a Florida or MN court.
