Divorce with colorado common law marriage
I am looking for help in determining if I can file for a divorce in Florida. I lived with a woman in colorado for over 2 years, we filed married joint tax returns both state and federal, we had insurances as married, car, home and some medical. We had a joint business account and owned a business together. We were going to have a formal ceremony when we to Arizona but we moved to Florida instead because her brother was sick. We have since separated.
I am 62 she is 59. She has a house in Colorado that I spent many tens of thousands of dollars on and two years worth of work. that is the only item that might be a problem. Everything else is separated.
It appears from the attorneys I talked to in Colorado that we would be considered married there but how about Florida and if not then I have to file in Colorado which will require a lot more work and expense.
How does Florida decide if we are or not without a long drawn out case?

My husband is currently in prison and he has already filed the divorce papers but has not sent in his indigent form or the documents stating how much money he has received on his books.

I want a divorce but don't know where he is
How can i get a divorce without knowing where he is? And no one will help me with no money.
A FL paralegal for Collier County was working on my ex's and my simple dissolution of marriage paperwork. I live out of state and my ex found this paralegal for us. Unknown to me they apparently knew each other and when a 'personal conflict' arose, according to her email, she dropped our case. My ex had already filled out his paperwork and gotten it notarized. I was about to send my reply to the petition, signed and notarized. Now we don't know what to do. The paralegal refuses to give my ex his paperwork. Can we file ourselves? Do we need a new paralegal or attorney to handle things if I am unable to appear in court? Can we file the copies of my ex's paperwork or must it be the originals?
Division of Property -- Retirement Annuities
What forms are required to prepare Division of Property with regards to retirement annuities? My former wife filed for divorce in 2008 and was granted a divorce in 2009. However, she never agreed to nor did her attorney propose what percentage of my two retirements she would be entitled to. I had an expert attorney in this field prepare the percentage of my military retirement while 2009, but my former wife never responded to this document. I have since made several additional offers based in advice I received from two other attorneys, and still have received no response from my former wife. I would like to get this resolved before I retire in 2013 so I can have some idea of what my net retirement pay will be after my former wife receives her portion of my retirement.

Divorce final hearing in palm beach county florida
(Boca Raton, FL Palm Beach County)
Hello, me and my soon to be ex husband filed for simplified dissolution of marriage this past week. He is the petitioner and I am the respondent. He will have to appear to final hearing. I am afraid he won't appear for the hearing in hopes to save the marriage. This scared me a lot. The reason he is the petitioner is because I will be on army active duty basic training starting Jaunary 4th. I will be out of state. I cant appear for final hearing. What can I do to ensure the divorce will be granted? ( if he doesn't show up, refuses to divorce) Thank you, awaiting your reply.
Simplified Divorce Questions
by Suzanne L
(Fernandina Beach, FL)
I am trying to file form 12.901(a), Simplified Divorce. My soon to be ex-husband lives in the Tampa area and I am in Nassau County. The form states we BOTH must go to the court and SIGN the form as well as appear. I understand that final appearance is mandatory, but can he take the form to a notary public in his area and send it back to me to file at the Nassau County Court? The forms state "Notary Public or Deputy Clerk" however, the instructions state as mentioned above. I prefer he only has to make one trip to Nassau County. Thank you!

Ex lying on legal documents
Hello my ex has lied on her indigent status form. Shes in contempt of court for lying about paying her child support payment to me when I have of received not one in over eight months since she had it modified. Plus she has moved and not informed me of her new address. My ex has stated all of this information on a new motion to dispute child support levy. She claims due to the levy her account were frozen.
What forms or how do I go about to filing documents to the courts order her to provide her bank accounts statements, and whose name the apartment she moved from were in? She never has any documents severed to me. I always go and pay for the documents she files on me.

No response to petition to establish a parenting plan
My ex (we were never married) lives in Texas and I live in Florida with our two children. He visits maybe once or twice a year and he threatens me all the time about taking them away from me and taking them to South Africa where I will never see them again, as he has citizenship there. So I decided to file a petition to establish a parenting plan giving him visitation within the state of Florida. I filled the paperwork with the help of non-lawyers who do that sort of thing and he was severed with the paper work and he did not respond within the given time, so they filed a different default form. What will happen now?
If there is no court order and divorce has not been filed yet can I see my kids?
(Ocala, FL, Marion)
My (soon to be ex) wife and I are filing for divorce. We've had papers in hand for over nearly 18 months and finally decided it's time to file. I recently moved into my own house and she is telling me I can have only standard Marion County Florida visitation.
I was thinking since there is no court order in place and the divorce hasn't even been filed yet...that I have equal rights to my kids...which in my mind is 50/50 time sharing until a court order is in place.
I have 48 hours before I would have my kids even if it was only for standard visitation so I need help fast. If I can only have them for standard visitation I will of course abide by the law but I just don't see how that would be the case.
Ex Husband Filed Motion For Contempt And Enforcement. His Lawyers had What He Lied about
(Palm Harbor, FL)
What do I do to stop a motion for contempt that never should have been filed as his lawyers had an executed quit claim on file for 5 years.
My ex was required to refinance the marital home back in 2010 within 60 days of the final decree. He never did thus causing severe harm to my future that I could not rebuild credit wise, own a car, I have no transportation, as the full amount of said house took up my score.
5 Plus years later, last week, he filed a Motion For Contempt against me. I provided said deed over 5 years ago.
He implicated himself in the motion, proving lies under oath. He did get to continue with refinancing as of today 09/23/15.
Do I have any rights when it comes to this false allegation and also for the damage that this has caused me. I have not been able to rebuild my life and am in poor health.
Can Divorce decrees be re visited due to severe change of circumstances?
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
my husband will not turn over all of his financials documents
