Actually, if the case is pending in the New Jersey court, even if you were to establish Florida Residency, the Florida courts would not have jurisdiction. See the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act,
Florida Statute 61.501 et seq. That uniform act is the law in almost...Read more »
I filed summary administration and homestead exemption. One of the witnesses to the will checked both boxes - one for personally knows the decedent and one for presenting license. The judge threw it out. As it turns out, there is not enough money in the estate to need probate. I was told by the JA... Read more »
It looks like it was the notary, not a witness who checked both boxes. If I were the judge I would not have "thrown out" the will under those circumstances (the notary knew the decedent AND saw an ID; that makes sense to me). But in any event, if the petition was dismissed and...Read more »

The title company has stated that, because FL doesn't recognize marital separation, the spouse must sign the title at closing. I'm wondering if the following is a loophole around her being legally required to sign the title: 1. I'm using cash from an inheritance for the down payment... Read more »
You should at the very least consult with an attorney who practices family law. For example, it is not clear what you mean by your wife signing "the title". Is this actually some sort of a "separation", or are you getting a divorce (called a dissolution in Florida)?

You have failed to indicate whether the child support order was entered by a Florida court, or by a court in some other place. Is the amount being garnished for past-due child support or is it currently owing; because normally (assuming it's a Florida order) child support ends when the child...Read more »

A sports league such as this is for entertainment of the players and their parents. Courts will not intervene in decisions such as this on the part of coaches and other volunteers. If you don't like it, find another team or league for your son to play with.
My partner is trying to move out at the age 18, but is trying to do it quickly and needs help since the parents in question won't be willing. Would I and my friends get in trouble for helping them move out? Is it concidered tresspassing and the parents have legal reasons to harm us?
18 years of age is the age of majority in Florida and almost all other states. So your "partner" can move. If that person lives there, she or he can invite you to his or her place of residence. If the parents accuse you of trespassing, call the police and advise them if the situation;...Read more »
