Q. No notice-Is a motion to strike and/or Motion to Dismiss the same as a notice of trial in Family law custody in florida
A: As you are currently represented by counsel, I cannot offer you any legal advice. However, I can distinguish a Motion to Strike and a Motion to Dismiss from a Notice for Trial. A Motion to Strike requests the court to remove certain portions of the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage because they are irrelevant, scandalous, embarrassing, etc. A Motion to Dismiss asks the judge to essentially throw the case out of court for a variety of procedural or substantive reasons. A Notice for Trial, on the other hand, simply lets the parties know when a trial on the unresolved issues is to take place. Family law trials are more like hearings than the trials most people normally see. A Motion to Continue is an option, but it is in the court's discretion whether to grant it. I suggest you speak to your attorney immediately about the issues you raised in this question.

Q. Is not bathing a child properly a form of abuse; to which that child constantly has bad skin rashes
A: The Florida Statutes state: "'Neglect' occurs when a child is deprived of, or is allowed to be deprived of, necessary food, clothing, shelter, or medical treatment or a child is permitted to live in an environment when such deprivation or environment causes a child's physical, mental, or emotional health to be significantly impaired or to be in danger of being significantly impaired." Furthermore, "abuse" is defined as, "any willful act or threatened act that results in any physical, mental, or sexual injury or harm that causes or is likely to cause the child¿s physical, mental, or emotional health to be significantly impaired. Abuse of a child includes acts or omissions." Depriving a child of proper hygiene, whether willful or negligent, to the point that the child's health is compromised is child abuse under § 39.01 Fla. Stat. Legal disclaimer: The information provided should not be taken as a substitute for legal advice from retained counsel.

Q. Can the mother of my baby take my son to a other state with out permission of the father
A: Children are protected by an interstate compact called the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Enforcement Act (UCCJEA), which allows the state to which a child is taken to return that child to his or her home state. The home state of a child is where the child resided for the previous six months. If you and the child's mother have a parenting plan, that document should include a provision dealing with the child's removal from the state. If you do not have a parenting plan, I strongly suggest you speak with a family law attorney to begin that process, as it will protect you and your child in the future. Best of luck to you.

Q. I just received a letter with a Final Judgemnet
A: As Mr. Boyer stated, the Final Judgment is the last of several documents filed in your case. It sounds like you returned a car to to Ford that you could no longer afford, and now the company is seeking the balance of the contract from you. If you were never provided with notice of this lawsuit, i.e. you were never served process, you may be able to get the judgment set aside. I f you were served process but did not respond to the lawsuit, depending upon your personal and financial situations, you may qualify for a garnishment exemption, as Ford will surely attempt to garnish your wages or bank account to satisfy its judgment against you. If you do not qualify for a garnishment exemption and have the ability to pay, you may want to speak with someone at either Ford or Ford's attorney's office about a settlement. Most companies will take something over nothing. And if none of these options work for you, the judgment is substantial, and you have other debts you are struggling to pay, you may want to consider a bankruptcy. I hope this has been helpful to you, and I wish you the best. Legal disclaimer: Legal disclaimer: The information provided should not be taken as a substitute for legal advice from retained counsel.

Q. My parents want to quitclaim 2 houses to me,later plan to do a bR.what should i do.i have VA and houses are being rented
A: Be very careful in this situation. If your parents plan to quitclaim these properties to you to avoid creditors, the transaction can be viewed as a fraudulent transfer, and may be rescinded. Also, when they file bankruptcy, the houses will have to be surrendered, as they are not either of your parents' homestead. The bank will retake possession once their discharges are final.
