Legal Answers
71 Questions Answered
Q. How do I get a divorce when I live in Florida, and my spouse is incarcerated in an Oklahoma prison.
A: So long has you have been residing in Florida for 6 months or more you can move forward with filing for the divorce in Florida. You would need to have a process server or the sheriffs department in Oklahoma serve your husband in prison. Note that because your husband has been out of the state of Florida for so long the court may not have personal jurisdiction over him. This only means that the court would be able to declare you divorced but would not be able to address finances such as alimony and the division of assets and debts. Given you want nothing from him, this should not be an issue and you should be able to get divorced in Florida. If you have further questions please feel free to contact our office.
Q. I am going through a nasty divorce and my soon to be ex wife has been threatening to share intimate information
A: If your divorce is already pending we would recommend filing an emergency motion to enjoin her from disclosing the information to third parties.
Q. Rand Scott Lieber the answer to your question
A: Until there is a court order stating otherwise, the parenting plan ordered by the court would still be in effect. If you are being denied timesharing you should file a motion for contempt and enforcement. As a remedy for the contempt you can seek make up timesharing and your attorney fees for having to bring forth the motion, among other things. We offer free consultations if you have any additional questions.
