Very sorry for your situation. you need to consult with an attorney near your area. I can's say what an attorney will recommend or if anything can be done but I think that it is worth a consult at least. (I cannot assist you as I am located in NW Florida, and you need someone in your local area).

Good Luck,

Answered on Feb 19, 2018

In my opinion, you are responsible. You probably want to argue that the roommate should have managed the cat better, but the fact remains that you made the arrangements to have the cat in the apartment, and y assumed responsibility.

Q: Do I have any legal recourse to break my lease early for personal safety concern?

1 Answer | Asked in Real Estate Law for Florida on
Answered on Feb 19, 2018

Likely no, if the landlord is not the person who is coming around. Also, I am not sure why there is not a domestic violence injunction against this person who keeps showing up. Typically the courts will grant the same if properly filed. Then if the person shows up and you can prove the same he will be arrested.

Hope this helps and good luck,

Q: Moving out of state with child

1 Answer | Asked in Child Custody and Family Law for Florida on
Answered on Feb 19, 2018

This question gets asked here a lot. Yes, you can take the child out-of-state unless there is a custody case pending. Such a case can be filed until the child has lived in the other state for six months, at which time it would have to be filed there.

Q: Florida HOA charging assessments fee while covenants expired via Marketable Record Title Act.

1 Answer | Asked in Real Estate Law for Florida on
Answered on Feb 19, 2018

Short answer is likely or maybe. However, the answer to your question is more in depth than this forum was designed for. ie: this forum is not a substitute for the hiring a lawyer to give specific advice. It is my opinion that an attorney would need to do research to answer this question and thus would likely need to be hired to do so and will likely charge a fee for the same.

Good luck and hope this helps.

Very little chance of that, in my opinion. If you have claimed one child and she has claimed two, it may delay your tax refund, but other than that it wouldn't adversely affect you.

Q: My ex wife gave custody of our daughter to her sister in virginia, but still collects the child support here in florida.

1 Answer | Asked in Child Support for Florida on
Answered on Feb 18, 2018

If the court awarded custody and child support to your ex-wife, it probably is not going to want to micro-manage how your ex spends the money. If she delegates custody to her sister, whether or not, or to what extent, your ex pays her sister is between the sisters.

2 Answers | Asked in Probate for Florida on
Answered on Feb 17, 2018

You should have asked your question in Justia › Ask a Lawyer › Alabama › Probate ›, but I expect that you need to reopen the probate case. Either that or, if you can persuade them that you are the sole beneficiary, have them re-issue the check to you.

Q: i have been seperated since oct 2017. We were married in ga in 2009. I now live in Fl. Looking to file divorce.

1 Answer | Asked in Divorce for Florida on
Answered on Feb 17, 2018

You should consult with a Florida attorney. As you and your children have been in Florida for at least 6 months, Florida has jurisdiction over both you and your children, therefore, more likely than not, the divorce must be filed in Florida. Good luck.
