Holiday timesharing is in addition to regular timesharing, not a replacement. So if his regular overnight is from Friday to Saturday and the parenting plan says that 4th of July is from the 4th at 11am to the 5th at 11am, then he is entitled to both days.
My ex filed false charges against me and I still haven't met my daughter because of it. After the court case is over, I'll be verifying who's child it is with a paternity test. If that comes back and I'm the father, I'm not quite sure how I'd be able to file for full... Read more »
Custody, parental responsibility, and a timesharing schedule can only be done in the state the child resides in. Therefore you need to file in New York and ask for a long distance plan or ask for the child to be allowed to relocate with you in Florida.
The short answer is never. The long answer is that children are usually not considered mature enough to be able to make adult decisions. One of the factors for determining the timesharing is: The reasonable preference of the child, if the court deems the child to be of sufficient intelligence,...Read more »
Also, wife is a green card holder. She's currently unemployed and can not afford it. Does husband of one (1) year, have right to refuse his obligation to get her pregnant against her will? Can she file a complaint and get her husband to provide contraception?
Your question is confusing. I would encourage her to reach out to the many local organizations that can assist with free or low cost birth control if this is something that she is seeking. There is nowhere to file a "complaint" against a husband who is not being a "good"...Read more »
I got my ex girlfriend pregnant, she moved to Florida for less than a year to be with me, left when we broke up(months) back to Rhode Island and was pregnant. Can I build a case so she would have to move to Florida so i can be in my kids life? I am not on birth certificate
Although you cannot make mom return, you can ask the court to order for the child to move here and for you to be the majority timesharing parent. This is not as easy as it sounds, but it is your best bet when compared to trying to get mom to move here. Unfortunately, you will need to seek this...Read more »
& acting Father. We were never separated. The Kids are now 4 & 5 with no involvement from the other man who said from day 1 he wanted nothing to do with them (we live in Fl, he lives in San Antonio Texas). Can he now come back & file a petition for paternity?
Under the current caselaw, the legal father is your husband. Therefore, he would be unable to come in and disestablish your husband as the father if your husband has been the acting as a father to the children and the biological father has been uninvolved.
My parents made me the youngest of 3 children their guardian and estate executor of all their assets. This was done to make sure all matters go well, and as they wish when they both pass away, Mom has passed and dad is currently in a memory care at 87 years old. I am now being approached by my...

You are not required to share those documents with your brother or any other person until you need to go to court to execute their estate plans. I would not share them as they are private documents that your parents entrusted to you until they are needed.
Unfortunately yes, he can move while the paternity action is pending. He will be required to show financials, even if claiming that his income is zero. Paternity matters can be difficult to do on your own and I'd encourage you to obtain a local family attorney to assist if you don't...Read more »

My ex moved out of state to NJ during this outbreak of covid-19. We have two children together and I have primary residency here in the state of Florida. He has not notified the courts in anyway about his moving out of state. After a week of being moved he tells me over the phone that he was faxing... Read more »
He's in violation of the relocation statute here in Florida which requires that a parent with a timesharing order request a relocation from the courts. The courts are not accepting any "faxes". They are also not accepting or hearing evidentiary matters that are not deemed true...Read more »
You should definitely get an attorney to help you collect on the money that you are owed. The court can order the father to get a job "on the books", they can order sanctions and contempt, they can order incarceration if he does not pay. Simply allowing him to get away with it,...Read more »
We have a three year son whom I filed shared legal and physical custody of in October. She finally replied and wants sole custody but only filed a parental plan and financial affidavit. Can I file for default since she didn't file all required documents and mail them to me?

Mother only allowed supervised visitation before where I was responsible for transportation, food and entertainment for her and her 4 children. Mother wants 70/30. She filed parenting plan and...

You must file a motion to compel or for her to show why she should not be held in contempt of court for her not complying with prior court orders. You must also ask the court for a final hearing or trial in order to have the court determine the final parenting plan.
The prenuptial agreement can have any terms that both sides can agree to, even 70/30. Most of these agreements state if only one states' laws will apply. This would mean that despite you moving somewhere else, the laws of the state where you choose would be applied.
He has made several attempts to visit him. (Mother denying) Just recently she finally agreed to a visit and the day of we find out she left the state. When he contacts her she tells him shes on vacation and they can set something up for visits when they come back. That was over a month ago! We have... Read more »
If he has not established paternity through the courts, he needs to immediately start the process. Otherwise, he has no legal rights to timesharing with the child. He then needs to search for her in the new state through social media, questioning family members, or other methods. Worst case, he...Read more »

Child support can always be modified if there has been a substantial change in financial circumstances. There really isn't much you can do, other than document when you have the child in a journal in order to use that as evidence if you should ever have to go back to court.
I had representation until recently and my evidence is on lien and I have to regather my evidence as I just found out that prior counsel did not prepare or turn in my evidence needed for the judge in time for my hearing. Now I have nothing for my hearing and have missed a deadline I was not aware... Read more »
The way retirement, pension, and TSP distribution looks like is based on the amount of time the person was employed prior to marriage and the amount of time married. For example, a person employed for 10 years and married 8, the marital portion is 80% of the value at the time of the divorce. This...Read more »
The divorce process started during the pregnancy. We filled all the paperwork out together and agreed on everything. We could not finalize the divorce due to the unborn child. Child has arrived and I decided to give the baby a hyphenated last name. I will be going back to one of my ex husbands... Read more »
If you and dad did not agree to the child's name, then yes, this could be an issue that may delay your divorce. Basically the court would need to decide between the names that each parent wants based on what is in the child's best interest. It doesn't stop the divorce, but...Read more »
