Orlando, FL asked in Family Law and Child Custody for Florida

Q: What would be the next thing to do while waiting on pending information from hearing on petitioner modification filed.

I have a custody case now open and the father of the child will not abide by the court orders as far as parenting plan given from different state. Case was thrown out because of jurisdiction and is now open here in state of FL. What is the next steps so I can get 50/50 here in FL as the case is at a stand still.

A: You are always able to request a case management conference (status conference) with the judge. Look online for your judge's division procedures and there should be instructions for scheduling. Speak with a local family lawyer for more specific advice.
