I have a trail date already in place that he requested to leave for March 2024. He canceled my mediation and put in a motion to withdraw the day before my mediation. I still showed up to mediation but no one was there
A Florida attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. The first thing to do could be to learn about the withdrawl, whether it was with prejudice or without prejudice. Withdrawing a case with prejudice generally means no rights reserved to refile the case. Withdrawing...View More

As long as the house is a marital asset, which it sounds like it is, the court will order the equity to be divided as part of equitable distribution. You will each have the opportunity to buy the other out or else the property will be sold. Speak with a local family lawyer for more specific advice.
The sea dip never got the reservation stating they don’t even know how I rented the room. They say they have private owners, but no way of who rented the room. The phone number on file kept going to voicemail and they said they didn’t know who that was and hotels.com never refunded my money.... View More

I don't know what "dss" means, but in any case, a question on a NC limitations period must be asked of a NC attorney. Since your inquiry is indicated to be from Sebring, Fla., mostly Fla. attorneys (like me) will see your post. Also, legal advice on the filing deadline specific to...View More
I hired an attorney who up till this moment I have yet to see the judge. I just wanted representation the law is not exactly on my favor in my state for being a grandparent. But still they took my funds and said they can at least try if that was OK which for me it was. So now I'm wondering was... View More
This sounds like an issue between you and your attorney more than a legal issue. Make an appointment to see your attorney in person and find out what is happening. Grandparent rights in Florida is a difficult issue but if you have had the children for seven years that will definitely work in your...View More

I sued and won in Brazilian Arbitration Court under UNCITRAL treaty. The judgment was to... View More
There are a few distinct issues involved in your inquiry: the recognition of a Brazilian Arbitration Award and the attachment of US Company assets. (In order to answer, I will of course assume all the facts you stated are true unless they are contradictory.)

I sold my property to a corporation. Everything cleared and closed through title. Now HOA is sending me an Agreement to Mediate, stating that the HOA does not allow the property owner to be a corporation. Shouldn't this have been caught by the title company, and never gotten to closing? What... View More
Typically, HOA receives a copy of the sale and purchase contract prior to closing in order to respond with a letter confirming if there are any outstanding dues do and if there are any special assessments, etc. and to do a credit check on the new owners. Therefore, the HOA must have been on notice.

You ask a very good question and one that I have been asked many times. An arbitration provision is valid even if the contract involved fraud. In other words, simply because fraud was involved in the transaction, that does not void the manner in which you have agreed to resolve the dispute. This is...View More

You need to find a couple of experienced mechanics to give you expert opinions as to there has been any foul play. Let them put their opinions in writing. After that, you can bring it to a commercial litigation attorney for a consultation as to whether it pays to sue them.
You are correct that it's an arbitration clause, requiring legal disputes to be resolved in an arbitration proceeding rather than a court. Certain businesses like such clauses in their contracts in order to have disputes resolved in a less costly fashion and to prevent claims from being...View More
If you don't understand the arbitration verbiage in the contract, have an attorney explain it to you. It basically means that, if there is a dispute over the contract, you will have to arbitrate the dispute instead of filing a lawsuit. See:
