Biography

I was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, where I practiced law from 1977. I was a municipal attorney for the first part of my legal career, and then switched to private practice. I conducted a general private law practice, with emphasis in civil litigation and bankruptcy. I also taught several college-level courses relating to various aspects of the law. In 2004, my family and I moved to Florida and have been here ever since. From 2011 to 2015 I worked for another lawyer in Walton County, assisting him in his office, especially with scheduling of attendance at real estate foreclosure hearings in behalf of secured creditors. I was admitted to the Florida bar in 2016.

Q. re my exwife. Permanent restraining order in place. Court order she gets money sends mine. late can i text?
A: No. If the restraining order prohibits you from communicating with her, don't text her at all. If you are trying to indicate that she is to send you some money and you haven't received it, send something about that, in writing, to the court.
Q. If a home is recorded as life interest one person and 5 other people have remaining life interest. Who has control?
A: In general, the person who has the life estate has the right to exclusive possession and control of the property. If other people have some sort of remainder interests (no right to possession until after the life tenant dies), they may only object if their remainder interest is being "wasted" by the life tenant. If other people have "moved in", it is unclear what rights they may have. Did they agree to pay rent?
Q. Can a person who has been sentenced to prison start a family after they're released? Domestic partners.
A: Yes, of course a convicted felon can start a family. But after reading your post several times, it appears that you are married, thinking about divorce, and are considering forming a live-in relationship with another man (the convicted felon, presumably). No, it is very unlikely that the other man could be awarded "partial custodial rights"; he would have to adopt the child first.
