Stop and think before you violate a custody order

As a parent, you typically do everything you can to protect your kids.

These decisions can certainly keep your kids safe and healthy.

Note: Proper notice for mechanic's liens is crucial

Construction projects have the potential seriously disrupt a party's use of a property, though the expectation is that any disruption will be temporary, and that the ends will justify the means. However, some Florida homeowners could face permanent loss of property if a mechanic's lien is filed.

Lawsuit filed against developer for unpaid services

Contracts are among the most essential elements of any business relationship.

Divorce: choosing the right path for your family

Is collaborative divorce right for you?

Designed to fail

Having a new home built is an incredibly exciting and stressful event for homeowners. You have the opportunity to have the home of your dreams, with everything you want and nothing you don't want. However, you can't make it all happen on your own. You need to rely on professionals to make your dream into a reality.

Construction dispute? Cutting your losses by cutting ties

Many construction disputes are resolved with action. One party agrees or is ordered to complete work, make payments, change timelines, repair defects or reimburse another party. These are all definitive and effective actions that should hopefully correct a dispute that has arisen.

Building a new house? What you should know about your deposits

Putting money down when you are buying a house is standard practice. That money, which can be the earnest money deposit as well as your down payment, includes one-time payments that serve as an indication of good faith on your part. If you are building a home, however, you may have to make several more deposits throughout the course of a project, depending on the schedule set by your builder.
