I've received a letter from the Clerk of Courts over a month ago stating arrears are paid in full. Therefore the case is closed with the Dept. if Revenue. I've looked up the case order online the case status is consent judgement not closed!
I was not informed of the proceedings in February, he was awarded sole custody by a majistrate, last week i was granted a retrial, does he maintain sole custody now or does it defer to the agreement signed by a judge on 8/20?
This depends on what the order for the retrial state. If the order was set aside, then the prior court order applies. If the retrial order did not set aside the last custody order, then you are still under that order.

He lives in Colorado, I live in Florida, our case jurisdiction falls in Colorado. He has decision making. But he wouldn’t be going with the kids. Him and his fiancé were kicked out so they sent our 2 kids and their 1 child to live with his parents in Kansas for the school year.
I'm pretty sure the courts in Colorado would not be ok with him sending the children to live with third parties over a parent. Unfortunately, you will have to get an attorney in COlorado to assist you since I'm assuming that is the home state of the children for the last six months.
An unwed Mother is the sole and natural guardian of children born outside of a marriage. Therefore as the Mother, only you have the authority to choose their school and their residence. Once you go to court though, that changes. You may want to try to work it out with the Father. Otherwise, you and...Read more »
Child lives with neither parent yet she seeks child support. Lost my job and I’m a injured vet whom served 7+yrs. original case from Illinois. Mother moved child from Chicago to Arizona without fathers (me) consent or knowledge
Your question is unclear. If you need someone to review the order of child support or modify it, since you lost your job, you will need to have someone where the order was initially entered, which from your question was not in Florida. You may want to repost your question in the Illinois section of...Read more »
Why are they still garnishing my disability check and took my stimulus money when I don't owe them nothing I sent a copy of the transaction history dating all the way back to 2012 showing balance due is zero I believe I'm intitlled to reimbursement from the date of case being closed til now
Sometimes, when a child support order is not clear when child support ends, you have to ask the court to end the child support. You may need to get a court order ending the support and addressing the issue of over payments.
Having a closed case is not the same as not having a responsibility to pay child support. It's unclear what you mean by closed case. If your child/children have all reached the age of majority (18) and graduated from high school, then you should be done paying. If money is still being taken...Read more »

The Mother is the legal guardian of the child if you and she were never married. Therefore, I would not remove the child from Florida without getting a court order of paternity allowing you to take the child with you.
When the General Magistrate renders a Report and Recommendation, the only way to correct it is by filing Exceptions to the Report. This must be filed within 15 days of the hearing. Otherwise, the judge will ratify his report and you will be unable to correct it.
Whose lawyer? Yours or the other side? Mandatory disclosure of financial documents is REQUIRED for both parties. The deadlines are within 30 days o the case starting. Therefore, it is very possible that these documents are overdue. Here's the form with the list of all documents required to be...Read more »
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 »
