Yes, you are right: the standing order seems to contradict itself. I think what it means is that you don't attach THE ORIGINALS, but you should attach copies (to the one you file, as well as to the copy of the pretrial statement you give to the other party).
... If one Party requests the deposition of a witness listed in the Pretrial Statement and the other party does not cooperate in scheduling the same, the Court shall consider any sanctions, including excluding the witness. ...
No, that's not what it means. A deposition is the taking of testimony of a potential witness OUT OF COURT. If they were to want to do that, the quoted language means that you should cooperate. In your case, apparently the other party intends to call witness to the IN COURT hearing. If your...Read more »

While we have no court-ordered parenting plan, we've been operating on agreements for the rotation of our child. Our latest agreement, in writing, was a 2-week rotation. She suggested a 2-month rotation, which I rejected in writing.
In keeping with the 2-week rotation, I've... Read more »
You could charge her with criminal conduct, but the police might well figure that since you are still married she could have some sort of defense to the charges. So you should get an order in the dissolution action providing that she stay away from your residence.

If I put down the ENTIRE down payment, and closing costs on a condo, and his name is not on the mortgage, does he get rights to the condo? His name is only on the condo, but hasn't put any money into it i.e down payment, electric costs, internet, cable, furniture, etc.
Very good question. It appears from your question that his name is on the deed. As such, as Florida is a title theory state, the fact that his name is on the deed provides him 50% ownership no matter who made the down payment. Further and assuming the condo was purchased during the marriage, the...Read more »
