Q. Marital home question and privacy.
A: As long as she is an owner she has a legal right to access.
Q. Our parenting plan states that I have 50/50 custody of my kids but since finding out that my ex-wife was in an abusive
A: You must file a Supplemental Petition for Modification with the court to change your parenting plan based on the current arrangements.
Q. What is the the right way to amend a answer to the petition? Both party have to agree to it or you just ask the court?
A: You file a Motion to Amend with the Amended Petition attached. State in the Motion that the other party agrees with the amendment. If they do not agree then you must get a hearing with the judge.
Q. I'm the non-custodial parent. Do I have to pay child support in a month when minor child is with me?
A: Yes. Child support is calculated based on the whole year and already includes credit for overnights with each parent.
Q. I have custody every other weekend. Mother's day took presidency over my weekend. Should I get them this weekend?
A: You need to read your parenting plan. If it is silent on this issue then you do not get the following weekend. The theory is that over the course of the year it will even out. It is possible that father's day will fall on her weekend, for example. Holidays take precedence over the regular schedule.
Q. child support. I am making all i can at the moment, can they take my basic needs?
A: There is a maximum that they can take from you, depending on your earnings and the size of your family.
Q. If I am a legal resident of FL can I sue my spouse that is a resident in another state
A: If you are asking specifically about divorce, if you have lived in Florida longer than six months and made it your permanent home then you can file for divorce in Florida, even if your spouse lives in another state.
Q. Is it possible to have a payout for child support less than amount owed if child is 23 and both parents agree to amount
A: As long as the Department of Revenue is not involved you can agree to a lesser amount and close the matter. If DOR is involved then you must get their permission.
Q. In florida, can a minor child age 10, refuse to visit non custodial parent. We were never married &have no custody order
A: If there is no court order on timesharing then the mother has complete control. If he goes to court he will have to start paying child support. Regarding timesharing the court will consider how long the father has been absent from the child's life. If timesharing is ordered it will be slow so that they can get to know each other. It will also probably involve a mental health professional who understands reunification. The main concern of the court is what is in the best interest of the child, not what is best for dad.
