Q. What does the term, "gainful employment" mean when used in a divorce in Florida.
A: Generally, gainful employment simply means legitimate employment. For an exact interpretation you would have to return to court.
Q. What time does the court see as START and STOP times of time sharing if not specifically mentioned in parenting plan?
A: Unfortunately there is no default time. If you cannot agree with the other parent then you must return to court for clarification.
Q. Child support was never calculated at the final hearing of my divorce and scheduled for a later date.
A: Child support is a right of the child so it cannot be waived. However, neither one of you needs to pursue enforcement. Just be careful if you are the parent obligated to pay that you have a written agreement with the other party about how the support will be handled.
Q. mother of 16 month old the father wants to take me to court he wishes to have overnight stays can I refuse this ?
A: The father will be allowed to spend time with the child. It does not have to be overnight. The court will decide what is in the best interests of the child. You need to tell the court that the father does not have an appropriate living space for the child.
Q. My daughter had a child out of wedlock in NM. Her spouse is in jail and left her w/o support. She moved to FL w/me.
A: In Florida the mother has full rights to the child unless or until the father goes to court to prove paternity. If she is the mother she has custody so no need to "file" for it. As long as there is not a court order in NM about paternity then the father would have to file something in Florida where the mother and child live in order to pursue timesharing. He would also be obligated to pay child support.
Q. My ex lost his job 6 months ago and cut theCS by 75%. He is trying to get a modification, however the court is wating
A: You must go to the judge to set a deadline. Until the documents are provided the old child support number is what is owed.
Q. Supprt started 16 years ago along with arrears. Now im over paid by 3,000+. 3 yrs left to pay. Can i get credit?
A: You are entitled to credit for all payments made. You need to confirm and go through the court system if there is a dispute about the overpayment.
Q. In Florida, if a person only pays cash for child support instead of through the state/court will he have any consequencs
A: If you choose to pay cash you should get a receipt each time and keep meticulous records. If the payee challenges you years later the burden is on you, the payor, to prove that you made the payments.
Q. If our court agreement clearly states the county our child goes to school in while using a specific address for school
A: You must return to court on an enforcement action. It is up to the judge to determine what sanctions, if any, will be imposed.
