Q: What is the correct filing process/petition if married w/ 3 kids after husband was ordered removal fr felony gun chrg
I cant afford another attorney and im almost homeless with 3 babies the youngest is newborn. please can anyone please help me.
A: Is the marriage irretrievably broken? Have you been a resident of Florida for over 6 months? If so, then you can file a petition for dissolution of marriage, and have the husband served with a copy of the petition and a summons. That might be a bit difficult to do if he is not in the US. You would want to have a temporary matters hearing set for as soon as possible, to get it ordered that he has to pay support.
