Summary

You should consider speaking with a divorce lawyer before becoming involved in any family law case. The common issues that are handled by a divorce lawyer include divorce, child support, relocation, time sharing (visitation) and alimony. You will have a much easier time as these issues are resolved and you will tend to get more positive results by hiring a divorce lawyer. Unlike some other firms, when you hire Mr. Mullaney as your divorce lawyer, you get him as your attorney - not an associate with far less experience. The broader category of Family Law encompasses a wide range of cases and issues, including uncontested divorce, contested divorce, paternity and adoption cases. The issues raised in Florida Family Law cases include: property division, debt division, child support, time sharing (formerly called visitation), child relocation, and alimony. Mr. Mullaney also represent clients in the modification of prior court orders, including those entered in other states. There is no doubt that involvement in any family law dispute can cause a great deal of stress in your life. Since Mr. Mullaney has exclusively practiced as a Florida Family Law attorney in North and Central Florida for over 17 years, he is aware of the emotional toll that these cases can take on clients. With that in mind, his goal is to help clients complete a smooth transition to the next stage of their lives. In addition to being a Florida Family Law attorney, Mr. Mullaney is also a Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Court Mediator.

Q. Hello, So here is my question. I am going on 15 months of a supplemental petition for modification.
A: You should try to subpoena the records you are looking for from her bank or employer. Since she is still refusing to produce the mandatory documents, you should ask that she be incarcerated until she provides the documents (since she is in contempt for not producing the documents).
Q. how much would it cost to get help with doing a minor child last name change?
A: The cost of the case would depend on whether both parents agree on the name change. If there is no agreement, there is no way to know the full cost of that litigation since there is no way to know how much time needs to be spent on the case.
Q. How do i go about finding out if someone is pregnant with my child?
A: That's a bad situation. The only thing I could think of is to start a paternity case anyway and request that she produce her medical records that proves she had a miscarriage. That seems a little extreme, but most mothers do not deny having a child. If she does have a child, you can ask the judge to order her and the child to submit to a DNA test to prove whether the child is your or not. If she did have a miscarriage, then you can dismiss the case.
Q. Child custody question regarding if both parents are required to live in the same school district.
A: Residency rules are usually set by the district. But I have never heard that a school would require both parents to live in the same district. Generally, most parents do not live in the same district for elementary school.
Q. What to I do if I was awarded child support but feel that the amount wasn't correct
A: You should have received a Child Support Guidelines Worksheet that describes how the calculation was done. The calculation is only wrong if the wrong numbers were used for income, deductions, child car, medical insurance and the number of nights spent with the child. If all the number are correct, then the child support amount is correct.
Q. I've lived with my partner for 12 years - we are an opposite sex couple.
A: You can't both adopt the child if you are not married. Either one of you can adopt, but not both.
Q. If I file for a divorce from my wife, will I have to leave my home. I'm disabled. 7 years left on our mortgage.
A: There is no requirement that you live apart while getting a divorce.
Q. Forms needed to relocate WITHOUT children
A: take a look at the relocation forms at flcourts.org . I will assume that you and your ex agree with the change. But you still need to get the judge to sign off on the agreement. The law requires you to submit a new Parenting Plan.
Q. If my wife is at someone else's house and no one will let her talk on the phone can I go to see her without any problems
A: There is probably a lot more to this situation that what is in your question. That said, you have no right to enter someone's property to speak to your wife.
