Legal Answers
68 Questions Answered

Q. My divorce is uncontested with a written settlement agreement. Can we waive the financial affidavit?
A: As part of a divorce is Mandatory Disclosure. One aspect of Mandatory Disclosure is a Financial Affidavit. Although you can waive your rights to documents required under Mandatory Disclosure, you cannot waive your rights to a Financial Affidavit. I hope that helps.
Q. My mom gave me a house a few years ago as part of my inheritance. It is in my name only. If I divorce dors hubby get 1/2
A: Generally, an inheritance is not a part of the marital estate thus not subject to equitable distribution. With this in mind, your question is not clear as to whether or not your mom was deceased when she "gave (you) a house." If she was alive at the time she gave the house to you, with nothing more, it is not an inheritance, thus subject to equitable distribution. If you received the house as part of a distribution of her estate, then it is an inheritance. Regarding the mortgage, as he bought the house prior to the marriage, it is a premarital debt; therefore the Virginia house is not an asset you would be entitled to nor are you responsible for the mortgage. I hope this helps.
Q. Which is easier to do across state line? Online divorce or a divorce attorney?
A: Divorce attorney. This is easier and the fastest way to go.
Q. What is the fastest, least expensive, and easiest way to divorce across state line?
A: Wait until you have been a Florida resident for over six months, then file for divorce here. Good luck.
Q. Am I screwed out of our money?
A: He can run, but he cannot hide. You could hire a forensic accountant to find all of the assets. That's what forensics do; however, you have to do a risk/benefit analysis. Do you want to pay the accountant $100,000 to find $50,000 in assets?
Q. I'm in the middle of a divorce and I believe I have just been blackmailed and don't know what I should do.
A: It sounds like you've already made a decision. The cases I like the best are the ones just like yours where I can tell opposing counsel to take their offer of extortion and shove it where the sun don't shine. Remember, if you were to go to jail, there would not be any money whatsoever for your soon-to-be ex-wife. So it is highly unlikely that they would do that. Stay strong. So long as your comfortable with your lawyer, and your lawyer is good, you'll be okay. Good luck!
Q. In the process of getting divorced on our own. Need assistance with kids situation.
A: When children are involved, the Child Support Guidelines are required to obtain a divorce. Good luck.
Q. Can I get remarried without getting a divorce if I've been separated for a number of years?
A: You would not be able to legally marry without first divorcing your spouse no matter how long you have been separated.
Q. I'm going through a divorce and me and my ex want write our own agreement for child support?
A: It does not work like that. You are required to use the Florida Child Support Guidelines when calculating child support. You can find them on-line. Good luck.
