Me and my ex gf have 50/50 child custody. She moved to her parents after we split up. 2 years later she moves to a new place and won't tell me who she rents the house with. As a Father I am concerned about my son's safety. What can I do?
You do not have a specific right to know the names of the people that she lives with. You do have a right to know that your son is in a safe environment. You always have the option of going to court if you can offer specific allegations regarding the safety of the child.
There is no form; however, if the two of you are in agreement then you should put the agreement in writing and both of you should sign it. As an additional measure, you can file the written agreement with the court.
This is not a simple yes or no answer. Father was responsible for providing health insurance but there is normally also a provision for how "uncovered" medical expenses are paid. It is possible that the father could be liable for the portion that would have been covered by insurance due...Read more »
As an unmarried father you must file with the court to establish your rights to the child. There is no default meaning that it does not happen automatically. Mother has all rights until you go to court.
I would like to know if she can do that without my knowledge if we were to separate as she was trying to do that when we talked about it. We have been living in it two years then bought a house and we rent it out along with another one
If she does a quit claim deed while you are married there will be a cloud on the title (a problem). Any person who is married must have their spouse sign off on a property transfer to convey a clean title. She may be able to do it but she will be creating problems for the future.
My kids and I used to live in NJ but have been living in FL for 3yrs now. My ex husband lives in New York. My child support case has been active in NJ for many years...how can I transfer my child support to our home state of FL to request a modification?
You can file the modification in the jurisdiction where you currently live in Florida. You will need to include a copy of the NJ order on child support that you are asking to modify. A local family lawyer can help you with this.
Our divorce is just finalized and my husband's interest in our home is being transferred to me. We are both on the Mortgage. I know I need to refi to remove him from the debt, but how do we go about the quitclaim deed? Is that done before mortgage refi, at time of refi, or after the refi?... Read more »
The best way is to get the quit claim deed executed now. You will then hold the deed until you refinance at which time it will be filed by whoever handles your closing. This way you do not need to chase down your ex in the future when you need the deed.
If you were never married, the mother has full timesharing (custody) rights to the child until the father goes to court on a paternity action. An administrative order that determined paternity and established child support does not automatically address timesharing (custody). The father's name...Read more »

You need to file something with the court asking for what you want. If you want to increase child support or reduce timesharing then it is a modification. If you want to enforce something then it is a motion for enforcement.
No modification can be effective before a motion is filed with the court. Generally, a wage earner is expected to continue to earn at the same level as they have historically, even if they lose their job. If you are the payor and her income decreases it could actually mean that you pay less, not...Read more »
I have a Florida child support order that says my ex is to pay $1200/month. However, he only pays around $400/month. There is an income deduction order, but for whatever reason the support is not being deducted from his paycheck. He moved to NJ & is working out there. Should I register the... Read more »
You do not need to involve the NJ court. Your local Florida child support enforcement entity can help you. Contact the court where you live and notify them of his new employment. They will make sure that NJ receives the IDO.
Court ordered payments through child support office , but no money since February. I called DOR and was informed that they were told payor told them that they are sending money directly to me, no proof ever given.
No call made to me and I was told to file a motion is this legal?
You need to file a motion saying that you are not receiving the child support. Once in court it will be payors burden to prove that direct payments were made. If the court order says payments through state disbursement unit then that is where payor should be sending payments, not directly to you.

His dad came and picked him up 2 days ago. I didn't want to fight with them(abuse in relationship, scared).... Read more »
If you cannot reach a resolution with the father then your only remedy is to go to court. It is unlikely in the divorce that the court would split up three children. However, you will both have a timesharing schedule defining when the children are with each of you. If he filed for divorce and then...Read more »
That is a loaded question depending on what the issues are in your case. Even if you and your spouse agree on almost everything you should definitely have an independent attorney review the agreement as your advocate. Does his employer offer you a free attorney as his spouse? If yes then take the...Read more »
We've only been married 1.5 years with no kids. She never fully moved into my inherited house so I locked her out upon filing. I'm giving her one of the cars, I have nothing other than investment accounts that I think will be premarital. If I use recreational marijuana for the depression... Read more »
You should consult with a local real estate attorney if you need help with this. The quit claim deed may not be valid without the proper legal description. They are the specific words that describe the property in the public records.
Our agreement states that I claim my child for odd year returns. I claimed my child and now I am being audited to prove that I am qualified to claim the child as dependent, Head of Household and Earned Income Tax Credit. What do I need to know in order to satisfy their request?
