Are you license in Fl.
Expert:  legalgems replied 10 months ago.

No, I'm not licensed in FL; I am licensed in a different state and the site has verified my credentials to that affect; Since we provide information versus advice, licensure in a particular state is not required; but I can opt out if you would like and there may be a FL attorney that can assist you

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I'll find someone Fl.
Expert:  legalgems replied 10 months ago.

I will opt out- hopefully a FL attorney will see this; please don't respond to this as that will delay a response. Thanks!

Expert:  Loren replied 10 months ago.

Good afternoon. I am Loren, a Florida licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.

Have both parties been contributing money to the upkeep and maintenance of the property?
