WHAT DOES STANDING MEAN IN A MORTGAGE FORECLOSURE?

For centuries, the law has been clear that the person filing a lawsuit must have the right to bring that action when it is filed.  It is not sufficient to acquire the right to file the suit at a later date.  To have the right to foreclose a mortgage in Florida, a person or entity must prove two things:

THE DANGERS OF GOING TO COURT PRO SE (WITHOUT AN ATTORNEY) IN FAMILY MATTERS.

Today many divorcing couples are trying to avoid potentially expensive divorces.  The problem is that many of these couples are simply choosing not to consult attorneys at all and therefore are not being apprised of what options they have to accomplish their very goal; including collaborative or amicable divorce, pre-suit mediation, hiring an attorney on a limited basis, or filing an uncontested divorce.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET DIVORCED?

This is a question that we receive regularly.  The truth is that the length of the process varies from case to case and from couple to couple.  The key element is how close the couple is to resolving their issues.  So a case that is essentially uncontested (meaning the parties have agreed on everything) or in a collaborative case that only takes a couple of team meetings to work out will move fast. However, a more traditional case will take longer.  The parties need to complete several necessary steps before setting to a final contested hearing.  Typically, discovery is exchanged, mediation is attended, and several motions may be filed and heard before the presiding judge prior to a final hearing.  However, generally most dissolution cases settle prior to the final hearing because the parties have signed what we refer to as a Marital Settlement Agreement.  Therefore, even in more traditional cases, the duration of the process is primarily determined by the parties themselves.
