Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&ASocial Media

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
188 Questions Answered

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.
Q. Divorced for 3 years. Wife moved back in with me. What are my rights if I want her to move out again.She is not on lease
A: As she is not your wife, it's as if she is a roommate. She cannot take any of your things. However, if you want her to leave and she refuses, you will have to file a lawsuit to evict her using a process called Unlawful Detainer. Good luck.
Q. getting divorced wife is buying a property and wants me to sign some papers pertaining to her mortage what should i do
A: You may not want to sign ANYTHING until after your divorce. I strongly suggest you contact a divorce lawyer ASAP. Good luck!
Q. I'm paying my NJ alimony through garnishments of my disability check.
A: You should go back into court in NJ and file a Motion to Modify Alimony Downward based on a substantial change in circumstance. This should have been done 10 years ago. Good luck.
Q. I’m I obligated to pay more in child support then that is originally ordered?
A: Based on your narrative, you are only legally responsible to pay $135 bi-weekly child support. It is extremely unlikely you will be arrested for failure to pay child support. It would take a court order, signed by a judge, to do that and a very long and drawn out contempt process to end up in jail. Good luck.
Q. What legal rights do I have if my soon to be ex-wife refuses to send back my son, We live in Florida she lives in Texas?
A: You should immediately file an Emergency Motion for a Pick-up Order in the divorce case. Good luck!
Q. After living together for seven years or more in Florida are we consider marry.
A: No, Florida does not recognize common law marriage. Good luck!
Q. How do one go about getting their name removed from a shared mortgage? 5 years ago the judge awarded the marital home
A: File a motion to enforce the court order. Good luck!
