Did i file the correct petition? There was a judgement of

Did i file the correct petition?There was a judgement of support against me in the past, initiated by the Florida Dept of Rev on behalf of the mother. It was ordered after she requested state benefits. When the need for benefits ended (9 months total) she closed the case with the dept of rev which stopped the Income deductions. But i just learned now that the judgement issued by the court is still open. Parental Responsibility Time sharing or custody was not addressed/adjudicated in this judgement and the order stipulates that the rules that govern those issues are sections 742.031and 744.301, Florida Statutes.The children have lived with me all of their life despite support enforcement stated and i have only now sought to establish and then enforce parental responsibility be bestowed upon me. I submitted a petition to establish paternity and related relief (asking for parental responsibility to be awarded to me, but should i have filed a supplemental petition to modify custody?

I have a question about custody of a young child (12 months

Good evening, I have a question about custody of a young child (12 months old) in the case of divorce in the state of Florida. I'm the mother, married to the father. I'm sure there's no specific answer you can really give but I'm looking for some reassurance. I feel trapped in my marriage because we have such a young baby and I could not bear being apart from him for even one night and I'm scared that if I divorced my husband I would have to be apart from my baby due to joint custody. Is there any general way the courts in FL usually handle physical custody of young children? (Where the baby resides and sleeps every night)? I'm his mother and he needs to be with me.

I am going through a custody case. I must send in a response

I am going through a custody case. I must send in a response form within 21 days which asks me if the request should be denied or granted, however the paperwork I received does not state the other parties request. How should I answer that without fully knowing what the request is? Also it does ask what my requests are. I would like the other party to have visitation rights of course. However I'd like them to be supervised. What information should I include with my request?

My boyfriend and I are getting married soon. He has 3 boys, 2 younger ones whom he loves dearly and provides for. His oldest son is on his own. My concern is that the 2 younger ones mothers will put him on child support out of jealousy because he married me. Can they do that? Will it effect my income seeing as though I make way more than him? Can it be prevented? Of course he has a parental responsibility I just don't want the financial strain on us over pure misery and vengefulness from these bitter women.
